30 White Sharks and a pod of Orcas

What an incredible expedition! We not only saw a record 30 different individual white sharks on this expedition, on our way back we ran into a pod of Orcas that came right up to our vessel. The pod included a whale with an incredibly tall dorsal fin, as well as some mothers with their babies. What a treat!




In addition to the sharks we encountered earlier this season, we had 3 new females, 3 new males, along with Keli, Andy, Johnny and Herman, all sharks we know from previous seasons.

Let's go shark diving!

Great White Sharks, Mauricio Hoyos and Ocean Ramsey at Guadalupe Island

Another successful trip to Guadalupe Island is wrapping up. Even though we encountered a bit of a south swell which affected the visibility, the sharks came out to play. On our first day, we had 14 different sharks swim by the cages. Along with the sharks, a green sea turtle and a small pod of dolphins, including a couple of tiny babies, also stopped by for a visit.


After our first dinner at Guadalupe Island, our divers were treated to a presentation by Dr. Mauricio Hoyos, the resident shark researcher. Mauricio's sense of humor and great material made his presentation a hit with our divers.


Mauricio also brought Ocean Ramsey along for his visit. Regular readers of this blog will know, that I'm often critical of what Ocean does and her visit gave us a chance to have a long talk and understand each others points of view. I was quite impressed with her passion for the sharks and the projects she supports and she even picked up a deck brush and helped scrub the boat.


On the way back to San Diego, the ocean was flat calm, a fact that was greatly appreciated by our divers. Overall it was a great trip, despite the less than stellar visibility.

In a few hours we are boarding our next expedition. I can't wait to see what will wait for us at Guadalupe. After 14 years of diving there, I still feel like a kid in a candy store, each time we depart to see "my" white sharks.

Come join us! Call Cindy at 619.887.4275 or email [email protected] and she'll give you all the details you need to book your trip of a lifetime.

Bigger than Deep Blue. The biggest shark at Guadalupe Island!

We just returned from our first expedition to Guadalupe Island this year. I'm happy to report that the big boys are back. Bruce, Jacques, Bite Face and Thor all made it back safely to the island. As big as those sharks are, they were dwarfed by the biggest shark to ever swim by a cage at Guadalupe. On our second day of diving, we encountered the largest fish on earth, a whale shark, swimming alongside a great white shark.


I have seen whale sharks before, but this is the first time I saw one swimming with a great white shark. You never know, what you are going to see on the ocean. Aside from great whites and the whale shark, we also got a visit from 6 bottle nose dolphins and a couple of green sea turtles.


It's not only the big boys that are back. We also saw the slightly smaller Hooper, Mau, Horizon, Ace, Micks, Mike, Drogin, Legend, Paul Walker, Seamus, Don Julian, Big and Ian along with the females Sydney and Amiria.

Like last year, we also encountered some new sharks. We definitely have another small female and male shark.


We only have a few spaces available for this season. Call us at 619.887.4275 or email [email protected] to reserve your space.
