Guadalupe Island

Great white cage diving

Where we are diving

Join Trip Leaders Chad and Janna Binder for an exciting trip focused great white shark encounters. This small volcanic island, located 150 miles off the west coast of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula, boasts shark viewing in beautiful clear blue water with 100–150-foot visibility. There are 242 unique great white sharks in the bay, which guarantees unforgettable encounters. We offer a rich and natural shark encounter experience on these trips by descending down to 30 feet where great white sharks naturally spend their time. We don’t need to use chum at depth; the sharks are already there. We have seen up to nine 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. It is an unforgettable rush when a great white looks at you from 50 feet away and then swims over for a closer look. We see great whites on three out of four dives.
