They came so fast from the deep to break the surface and in less than a second, the whole shark’s body was completely out of the water!!
Our youngest guest was 14 and newly certified and we had 3 women in their mid 70s who have been diving together all around the globe for nearly 40 years!!
I saw today the biggest great white shark I have seen here at Guadalupe Island on board the Nautilus Explorer: “Dotty!” We estimated her to be at least 5 meters (16-17ft) in length.
Many large sharks, the big females, are starting to arrive, with several individuals at 13ft plus and some as large as 15ft!
Just when you think you had it all, as we were sailing back to Ensenada, we were greeted by Orcas!!
“Rhett” and three of his friends kept circling, fast and close, until “Rhett” did a partial breach to grab the bait and came at us with jaws wide open.
The wranglers were working like crazy, especially when 4 sharks were trying to get the bait at the same time!
