The best Great White Shark cage diving on the planet
Great white shark encounters at Guadalupe Island are nothing short of spectacular. It’s simply the best destination in the world for calm clear water and consistently high probability of multiple shark encounters per day.
The sheer number of sharks in the bay that we cage dive in is amazing. On many dives, we see two to three great whites, although in July and August we have seen up to 47 sharks on one trip! Guadalupe Island is home to at least 366 individually identified sharks and still counting.
