Guadalupe Great White Sharks!

Join us August 21-26,2022 as we head back to Mexico’s infamous Isla de Guadalupe, for what’s known as “The Best Great White Shark Diving on the Planet“. Get ready for up close encounters with these massive beautiful apex predators in crystal clear blue water with visibility regularly reaching upwards of 35+ meters (115+ feet).

Great White Shark encounters at Guadalupe Island are nothing short of jaw dropping. Located a 16 hours sail from Ensenada, Mexico, it is hands down the best destination in the world for calm, clear water and a consistently high probability of multiple shark encounters per day. The sheer number of sharks in the bay where we dive is just amazing. Guadalupe is home to at least 350 individually identified great whites and we are still counting. On average 30 new sharks are identified each season! Plus on most dives, we see multiple great whites around the cages! Last trip we spotted 10 in just one dive!

This trip we are heading back to catch the mid season excitement when all the big males show up! In August most of the younger males show up and begin to compete to lock in their spot in the local hierarchy before the females arrive. Historically late August has always given us the best action at Guadalupe! It’s going to be an awesome trip. Check out the full info below and then sign up today! Spaces are limited!

The Ship:

For this special trip we have chartered the 105ft (32 meter) Nautilus Under Sea – our favorite vessel for trips to Guadalupe and Socorro! Unlike most of the ships going to Guadalupe the Under Sea takes only 18 guests making for a more intimate experience. She’s a beautiful ship with an incredible history that includes starting her life as a submarine tender to Dr Perry of Perry Oceanographic. She then spent her time as one of the most famous dive boats in the world working in Cocos Island and creating  IMAX adventures in the South Pacific. In 2017 she was completely refurbished with a new superstructure, and extended sundeck, and a brand new stability system. Beyond that she was also kitted out to fit the comfort and luxury that the Nautilus brand is known for including a hot tub, full bar, huge camera tables, a spacious dive deck, and so much more. Her heavy steel construction and custom stabilization system is designed perfectly for ocean crossings and makes her ride smooth and comfortably. She’s also kitted out with a wide range safety features that you normally don’t see on liveaboards as well as being ISM safety certified.


We’ve made it easy with 2 options for getting to the ship! You can either fly into San Diego, California and catch a shared transfer to Ensenada to meet the ship through Nautilus or you can fly into Tijuana, Mexico and hop an Uber, bus or taxi to Ensenada and meet us directly at the ship. We can also organize private transport for you from San Diego or Tijuana to the ship if you prefer. We will meet for ship check in at the Hotel Coral in Ensenada at 7pm. A roundtrip transfer through Nautilus costs $100 USD, but they give you the $100 back as a voucher to use on board for rental gear, gift shop, or bar.
