October 24th 2018 Come with us for our 12th Group Trip to Guadalupe.
We will be Photographing Great White Sharks in the Crystal clear Waters of Baja Mexico's Guadalupe Island.
170 Miles west of Ensenada MX.
Aboard the Nautilus Undersea
Great white shark encounters at Guadalupe Island are nothing short of spectacular. Guadalupe feels like a remote outpost at the end of the earth but is actually incredibly easy to get to. Our trips meet in San Diego, California with coach transfers to Ensenada, Mexico. Its the best destination in the world for calm, clear water and a consistently high probability of multiple shark encounters per day.
The sheer number of animals in the bay we dive is jaw-droppingly amazing. We see great whites on three out of four dives. The bay itself is home to 228 recognized individuals ranging from 12 to 19 feet long! At times, we have seen as many as nine sharks on one diveand thats because Guadalupe is just the sort of place where magic regularly happens in the water.
Even the island itself, 180 miles from the Mexico coastline, seems magical. The coast of Guadalupe is 25 miles of rocky cliffs, but above this is dense forest, giving it the feel of an exotic, South Pacific destination. You can expect between 100 and 150 feet of visibility. We can literally see the sharks come in from beyond the anchor line. Nothing but clear, cobalt blue water.
Moreover, this experience isnt limited to advanced divers. You dont need to be a certified scuba diver to join us, although we recommend you take a Discover Scuba Diving course prior to your trip, and possess a strong in-water comfort.
All certified divers will have the opportunity for a minimum of three dives per day in the submersible cagesand your trip includes the opportunity for unlimited time in the surface cages. Divemasters are in the water during every submersible-cage dive to ensure your safety. Note that the surface cages open at 6:30 a.m., and diving in the submersible cages begins at 8 a.m. Both are available until dusk.
Our conservation efforts also continue at night when we kick back in the salon and identify who we spent the day with. And should you realize that you hung out with a great white shark not yet catalogued, yes, the naming rights are all yours.
