Ever since I was a young girl I dreamed of being face to face with a great white shark. I grew up playing with nurse sharks and sting rays since the age of four, and the one creature that captivated me more than any other sea animal was the great white. On October 6th, my dream finally came true and I go to see my first great white. I’m here on my honeymoon with my husband who shared this dream with me and we had the opportunity to witness this moment together. I can’t think of a greater thrill or overwhelming sense of joy than the instance that we heard the banging on the cage and could see this beautiful creature for the very first time. I had tears in my eyes and the biggest smile on my face. From that point on it was shark after shark after shark for the rest of the day. I feel so very fortunate to be on this journey and enjoy the presence of these awe-inspiring creatures. This is an adventure I will hold in my heart forever.

I have done white shark cage diving in both Australia and South Africa but Guadalupe is the best experience by far. The visibility is unbeatable and the number of sharks here gives you the chance to see them up close. This has been a tremendous experience onboard the Nautilus Explorer and one I will never forget. The only thing missing would be a night dive with Great Whites?
