100% Success Record
We have a 100% success record diving with White Sharks. We guarantee you will see Great White Sharks on your trip or you can come with us again for free.
100% Safety Record
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.
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!
