Great White Sharks | Guadalupe Island
September 1-6

September 1, 2017 @ 8:00 am - September 6, 2017 @ 5:00 pm


Ocean Adventures has booked a fabulous trip to the very unique location of Guadalupe Island (in the Pacific 200 miles SW of Ensenada) to go observe the Great White Sharks that congregate there each year. We will be aboard the the Nautilus Belle Amie which is large and roomy and wonderful and perfectly suited for this trip.

There are five cages in the water, one at the surface, one slightly submerged off the stern of the boat, and three that are submerged about 30 feet down to give you a really great view of these magnificent fish in their natural habitat. There is no need to use chum at depth; the sharks are already there. There have been sightings of up to six great whites at once circling the cages. Without chum these great whites are more relaxed, exhibit MUCH more curiosity, and come in MUCH closer to the cages. Best of all, the cages are double-deckers, which means you can venture onto the upper deck and outside the bars to truly go face-to-face with great white sharks out in the open. It is an unforgettable rush when a great white looks at you from 50 feet away and then swims over for a very close look.


We will meet in San Diego at 7PM on the evening of September 1st. Then we’ll board a motor coach and be driven down to Ensenada (about two hours) where we’ll board the boat and depart on the 20-hour trip to Guadalupe. The following day is a full day at sea. This day will give you plenty of time to understand the protocols, hook up cameras, and get excited for what’s to come. The morning of the 3rd, the diving begins around 7AM and continues until at least 5PM. Same thing the 4th and the 5th. At the end of the day on the 5th, we begin the trip home, arriving mid-afternoon on the 6th. The motor coach will take us north across the border back to San Diego and then it’s back home.

Call Ocean Adventures 310.578.9391 to book your spot today!

*trip cost is all inclusive (tax, tip and port fees included)

These are not inexpensive trips. We’ve reserved Deluxe Staterooms (lower deck at the waterline) but we can upgrade you to a Superior Stateroom (slightly more room and on the second deck) if you like. The Deluxe rooms are $3,595/diver and the Superiors are $4,195/diver which incudes tax, tip, and port fees. But the bottom line is that this is quite an adventure that you’ll remember for the rest of your life!
