Our Great White Shark season is starting in a couple of weeks. This is going to be my 14th year, visiting Guadalupe Island and believe it or not, I'm getting more excited to go back each year. I just can't wait to see who's back. Is "Shredder" going to show up again, after missing the last 2 years?
"Shredder" my favorite shark.
How about "Horizon"? As you can see from the picture below, he's not the most careful shark in the world. I wonder, if he's related to "Shredder", they seem to have some very similar personalities. His dorsal is missing a nice chunk and parts of his tail have been bitten off by other sharks on a couple of different occasions.
Bruce, Bite Face and Jaques have been faithful visitors, showing up every year, since MCSI started keeping track of them in 2001. When we first encountered them, they measured a "measly" 11-12 ft and are now they are all 16+ ft. Are we going to see them again this year?
The discover channel is starting their "shark week", just about the same time our first divers are going to experience a "Real Shark Week". Coming face to face with these awesome sharks is nothing like what you see on TV. You will never forget the moment, when they look straight into your eyes, for the first time. It is truly an experience of a lifetime! To all our divers that are coming out with us this season. I'll see you soon and I can't wait to introduce you to my toothy friends. In the meantime, we'll keep you updated with pictures and stories from our expeditions, as the season progresses.
