Diving with the Great White Sharks of Guadalupe
Activity provided by
In Richmond, British Columbia, Canada
A unique diving experience with Great White Sharks of Guadalupe island, Mexico
There is no way to describe the feeling of being dwarfed by these giant predators in their natural habitat. We believe that the best way to observe great white sharks is to descend into their world and interact with them on their own terms in a natural way from our double decker submersible cages. Guests on the Nautilus Explorer and Nautilus Belle Amie have 4 cages at varying depths to choose from providing the best way to see lots of “whiteys” up close and very personal. Please join us for the adventure of a lifetime.
The small volcanic island of Guadalupe is located 150 miles of the west coast of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula. The beautiful clear dark blue water provides over 125 foot visibility giving the best shark viewing conditions of any location in the world. We recently counted 109 great white sharks in the bay where we stage our submersible cage diving operations which guarantees unforgettable encounters.Show less

Voyages are typically 5 nights/6 days. Number of shark-dives on the trip is virtually unlimited. On the first morning upon arrival we do warm-up dives and afterwards the pool is always open. Current record is 31.5 hours of cage time over 3 dive days. Cages close at 5 p.m. on the last dive day to get ready for the steam home.
We offer a rich and natural experience of shark encounters on these trips by descending down into the shark’s world where they prefer to spend their time. We don’t need to use chum at depth; the sharks are already there. And we don’t need to use heavy slicks of blood, oil and chum on the surface. We have seen up to six great whites at once circling the cage and even bumping up against it in a gentle way. Without chum around they are more relaxed, exhibit MUCH more curiosity, and come in MUCH closer to the cages. Best of all, our 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!
Diving is done via surface supplied “hookah” with backup dive gear in each cage. Submersible cage dives are 30 minutes long and if you are a certificated diver, you will have the opportunity to make 3 dives a day.. Dive time in the “suspended cage” and “surface cage” is unlimited.
