We are headed to Isla de Guadalupe, Mexico to dive with the king of all sharks - the great white. Located in the Pacific Ocean approximately 165 miles west of Ensenada, Mexico, Guadalupe Island is the best place in the world to see great white sharks underwater. The island has a large population of white sharks that annually visit these waters, thanks to the thousands of Guadalupe fur seals and northern elephant seals that call the island home. With over 100 plus feet of visibility, the water here is every Shark photographers dream...crystal clear conditions and big toothy sharks. Other wildlife that can possibly be viewed during our dives; Guadalupe fur seals, Northern elephant seals, makos, blue sharks and yellowfin tuna.
This expedition uses surface supplied air (hookah) instead of scuba tanks, so this cage diving adventure is open to both divers and non-divers alike.
WATER TEMPERATURE; 68 - 72 F ( 20 - 22 C )
LAND TEMPERATURE; 60 - 85 F ( 16 - 28 C )
We use two surface cages and each cage can hold up to 4 divers. Throughout the day we will rotate divers, (every hour), all day long. Giving everyone equal opportunities to spend plenty of time with the white sharks. We use a hooka line set up (surface supplied air), so you do not need scuba tanks, which allows more freedom and movement inside the cages. Because we use hooka lines, this expedition is open to both certified divers and non-divers.
THE SUBMERSIBLE CAGE
Uncertified divers unfortunately are restricted to the surface cages only, while certified divers can experience an exciting and unique perspective from the safety of our submersible cage. In this cage, we can lower four of our divers down to 30 feet where they can view sharks from an entirely different perspective.
