We are headed back to Guadalupe Island in 2015 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 reason is because of the 100′ plus feet of visibility in warm-ish 65-70 degree water, unlike South Africa or the Farallon Islands where the water is cold, murky and green. Because you will be using surface supplied air (hookah) instead of scuba tanks, this cage diving adventure is open to both divers and non-divers alike.
We have been traveling to Guadalupe since 2003 and each season we have been blown away with the amount of white sharks that can be seen during our short visits to this island. During our visit in September of 2012, we had over 20 different white sharks visit the boat and we averaged between 10-12 sharks everyday with three breaches next to our boat. On our last day we even had two 4 foot mako sharks come in to say a quick hi. They did not hang around very long for obvious reasons. Our trip is scheduled as a 6 day expedition, with 4 days of diving. Our home for this expedition is the Sea Escape, a 110′ liveaboard dive vessel.
Diving with white sharks is truly a humbling experience and Guadalupe Island is an amazing place and is home to some of the largest white sharks in the world and they are not shy at all around the cages, so if your interested in diving with great whites… join us!
