Guadalupe Island Shark Diving

Shark diving in Guadalupe Island is the most exiting adventure for certified and non-certified divers, since you will be breathing surfaced supplied air, no diving certification is required.

Guadalupe Island is located in the Pacific Ocean approximately 165 miles west of Ensenada, Mexico and it has become the world’s best location for diving with great white sharks.

This is one of the favorite expeditions of wildlife photographers and videographers from all around the world.

The visibility in Guadalupe Island is often more than 100’ and the water temperature averages between 65F-70F. This 5 day expedition is a perfect adventure getaway, feel the adrenaline and discover why Guadalupe island is one of the best dive spots in the world.

In Solmar V, we operate two 4-person cages using a proprietary swivel system, which hooks to our swim platform making it very easy and safe to get in and out of our cages even in rough weather. We also pioneered submersible cages at Guadalupe Island and operate a 3-person submersible cage to 30 feet.

Having only 20 passengers on board and three cages, we are able to rotate 10 guests in and out every hour, all day long, making the best experience for white shark diving in Guadalupe and keeping it safe for both, the great white sharks and our divers.

Guadalupe Island Diving Itinerary

The best season for Guadaupe shark diving is from August through October. All of our Guadalupe diving trips are 4 nights/5 days with 3 full days of white shark cage diving.

Our clients are picked up on day one at 10 a.m. at our host hotel in San Diego close to the airport and escorted safely down in an air-conditioned luxury coach to Ensenada, Mexico.

It’s actually a beautiful, scenic drive down the coast once you get past all the Tijuana border traffic. This is about a 1 1/2-hour drive, departing Cruiseport Marina at approximately 12 noon.

It’s an eighteen-hour crossing putting us at the island early morning of day 2. We start shark diving operations immediately, day 2, 3 and 4 are spent cage diving with great whites.

At the end of day 4 we wrap up and start our trip back to port arriving by noon on day 5.

The luxury coach is waiting to drive our clients back to San Diego that afternoon. However, because the border crossing at Tijuana can take time, we advise our clients not to book any return flights until late that evening or the next day.
