We could not have had a smoother crossing to Guadalupe Island. It was like being in a bathtub except that we were on the giant Nautilus Explorer.

Here I am on another trip to Guadalupe with great weather. So far we had an awesome crossing and it can’t get better than arriving at about 7:00 pm at our anchorage spot. We could have seen the island for about 3:30 on the horizon and we had all the guest with their cameras taking pictures non-stop of the island. As we got closer we could see the clouds just running down the island as if is was snow just running down perfect sighting.
We got some of the cages in the water that night and we had a head start for the following morning so we could get the cages open for 6:30 in the morning. We had guests suiting up and ready to go and have the first sighting of the monsters, so far we had one great white cruising around as if to say ‘hey I am here for my picture to be taken’ and the cameras started to roll.
On the submersible cages today we had Lucy, which is one of the female shark that have a broken top tail but trust me she moves just like if nothing was wrong with her tail. We have 3 big female and one big male that l I thought was female, that’s how big he was, and a smaller one so we had a great day today.
We have one of the guest that has never put a reg in his mouth and has never seen a great white. This trip was given to him as his birthday gift cause he has always and has been one of his dreams to see and be in the water with the famous great white. He has been so excited now we can’t keep him out of the surface cage his dream and wish have come true! There are guests that this is their third trip to see the great whites and will get the best pictures and memories of a life time.
The water temp is around 19-20 C and the vis is a hundred plus so at no point in time you can’t see the shark and watch their movement and behavior. Well that all I have to say for today so I will keep you all posted.
