M/V Islander Virtual Tour
Our vessel, M/V Islander, was designed and built specifically to carry passengers comfortably off the Southern California and Baja coast. From the Channel Islands to Guadalupe Island to the Revillagigedos, the Islander has seen them all. Great White Shark enthusiasts should be encouraged to know that the Islander was part of the fleet that first noted the presence of White Sharks at Guadalupe Island. Our vessel is inspected and maintained to not only meet, but exceed, the United States Coast Guard’s stringent standards. Our home fleet, located in San Diego, is the largest passenger carrying fleet in the world.
Islander is outfitted with twin Bauer air compressors for reliability and abundancy. Our custom air system provides air to our cages all day and our ample air storage system refills at night meaning no running compressors during the day. Our transom mounted hookah system provides air safely and efficiently with an ease of use appreciated by novice divers.
Islander is equipped with a mechanical boom for handling heavy items such as skiffs, shark cages, jet skis and research equipment. Islander is fitted with a 24ft boom capable of lifting 1000 lbs. of deadweight.
