We have now identified over 300 individual white sharks in the bay that we dive in. And most astonishing of all, we had trips with 3 dive days in which we saw over 50 different great whites.
We had Great Whites in Guadalupe, lots of California Sea Lions on the way down south, now Giant Mantas and Silky sharks and dolphins…all in one trip, and the best still lays ahead.
So far there are about 270 sharks in the identification book with around 30 new ones added each year as they are spotted and photographed.
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!!
Nautilus Liveaboards runs a very safe and very fun trip. From the first moment I stepped foot in a shark cage, I was comfortable and relaxed.
An even larger female came and hung around after “Lucy” left. Everyone was amazed by her sheer size and confidence cruising slowly and attempting to get the bait and keeping the wranglers on their toes.
There were a lot of sharks both at the surface cages and the submersible cages. Everyone was in awe of the massive females that showed up toward the end of the day.
