GUADALUPE ISLAND | SHARK CAGE DIVING
Great White Shark Diving For Everyone
Shark Diving For Everyone
We specialize in taking non certified divers, or first time shark divers, into the exciting world of sharks. Dive with us and discover hands on shark research and shark conservation at Guadalupe Island. Shark Diving For Everyone is our commitment to showcase the incredible world of white sharks with a combination of 18 years of cage diving experience, a cage system designed exclusively for non divers, top notch shark staff and cage diving crews with years of hands on shark experience. We have been cage diving and naming many of the white sharks you’ll be diving with this year. From the incredible 19+ foot Deep Blue, most likely the largest great white shark in the Pacific, to many of our regular white sharks like Scarboard, Lucy, and Mau. These amazing animals have become more than just whites sharks to us as we encounter them year after year – we met Scarboard 16 years ago – they have become our sharky friends.
In 2003 we initiated the CICIMAR/U.C Davis white shark tagging and research program at Isla Guadalupe with a young graduate student Mauricio Hoyos. Today, almost 15 years later, Dr Maurico Hoyos leads International teams of shark researchers to this unique destination to tag and study the lives of great white sharks in the Pacific. Our crew has been involved in many of these projects including the groundbreaking REMUS Woods Hole Oceanographic autonomous drone study that showed, for the first time, actual deep water predation by great white sharks. Shark tagging at Guadalupe Island has shown symbiotic relationships with seals in the region, and long distance migrations by some of our larger females as far away as the Oregon coast!
Additionally, we have been involved from the early inception of the Marine CSI photo identification book and SPOT tagging efforts. Many of the Guadalupe Island white sharks named in the book were named by our divers and crews since 2003. On your next cage diving adventure with us you’ll meet these research teams and get to know the secret lives of sharks at Guadalupe Island.
We know you have a choice of liveaboard shark vessels for Guadalupe Island this year. Since 2000 we have watched the shark fleet grow, and grow, and grow. Safety is primary to us and we have the best safety record in the shark diving fleet. Not only is our U.S. crew the most experienced dive operator at Guadalupe Island, but they are all federally licensed and participate in the U.S. Coast Guard’s random drug testing program.We have remained the value boat, the place shark divers call home with a return rate that is the envy of the fleet. We love our shark divers and they love us. Make this the year you do something incredible on your next vacation. The year you get to experience cage diving with great white sharks at the most amazing shark location in the world. We’ll be waiting for you. Let’s go shark diving!
