    A 100% undisputed diving safety record. We've had zero cage breaches, accidents or incidents between a shark cage and a Great White Shark at Guadalupe Island.

  • USCG Certified Vessel
    Our vessel, M/V Islander, is fully licensed, annually inspected, certified and safeguarded by the United States Coast Guard for BEST IN SAFETY. As an American flagged vessel, the USCG is at our service in the event of an emergency.

    Although the Islander can accommodate up to 33, we limit our divers to 16 per trip. We keep our groups small to offer a personal experience. This allows us to maintain an exceptional crew to diver ratio while promoting camaraderie between the guests and the crew.

    We are the only business shark diving at Guadalupe Island to receive a special recognition award from CONANP in conjunction with SEMARNAT, PROCER, and Reserva de la Biosfera Isla Guadalupe, achieving 100% for best practices in all qualifying categories.

  • Exceptional Crew
    You will love them! Not only is our U.S. crew the most experienced dive operation at Guadalupe Island, they all participate in the U.S. Coast Guard’s random drug testing program - another top safety point. Most are USCG licensed captains, PADI certified divemasters or hold a degree in marine biology.

  • Emphasizing Education and Conservation
    We have a passion for Great White Sharks. Every day we see the importance of keeping a balanced eco-system in our oceans and protecting all marine life. Our trip focuses on learning more about these majestic Great White Sharks and Isla Guadalupe all while having an unbelievably exciting and fun experience!

Shark Adventure Guadalupe

I always wanted to do a great white cage diving trip, so I googled those trip in the US. Islander Charters was one of the first to pop up, so I read about them and contacted them to book a trip. Everything from initial communication...

Most incredible trip!

Once in a lifetime journey. The crew and food were unbelievable! You won't be disappointed, and will definitely go home with an experience of a lifetime. Extremely knowledgeable crew that catered to every request. Saw 16 different great white sharks on our cage dives...

Hands down the most amazing trip I’ve ever been on/ most amazing experience I’ve ever had. The entire crew on this boat was so welcoming and accommodating I could have stayed with them forever and I know if I ever do this trip again I will only go with Islander Charters. The sharks, the people, the food, the whole vibe of the boat just make this trip so incredible. Juliet was so much help...
