Great White Shark Diving Adventures
Shark Diver, based right here in San Diego, is the first cage-diving company to offer certified and non-certified divers, alike, the opportunity to swim with massive great white sharks. Our 5-day live-aboard excursions take you to the waters surrounding the volcanic island of Isla Guadalupe, Mexico (about 175 miles west of Mexico's Baja California Peninsula.) Special Shark Diver packages include 3 full days of diving, a free Shark Photo ID book from the Marine Conservation Science Institute, accommodations, meals, beer and wine, dive equipment, photos and videos of your experience, and so much more! Prices start at $2995/person.
Cage Diving for All Ages Since 2001
"Safe and Sane Shark Diving" is our motto. Our goal from the start was to open up the amazing world of sharks to the general public, as well as develop conservation initiatives for these beautiful creatures. We have succeeded! Shark Diver has become the leading 'go-to' adventure company for shark enthusiasts, as well as for the television and film industry. We take all ages of divers. If both guardian and diver feel comfortable in the ocean and breathing out of a regulator, they are welcome to dive with us.
Our Beautiful Dive Vessel
Shark Diver charters the luxurious 105-foot Undersea vessel for its seasonal shark dives which run from August through November. This is when the great whites congregate at the island. So be prepared to see apex predators come right up to the cages to look you in the eyes! While on board, enjoy several choices of accommodations with private bathrooms in every room. Plus, there is a hot tub, sun deck, and Wi-Fi available. You will need a valid passport and dive insurance.
Special Hosted Dives
All of our dives are hosted by either our Citizen Scientist and Shark Diver CEO, Martin Graf or Marine Conservation Science Institute Researcher, Nicole Nasby Lucas. Both are extremely knowledgeable and educate our divers on the migratory habits and characteristics of these highly misunderstood sharks. They know many of our sharky friends by name and can identify them by specific markings on their gills, fins, and tails. You may have the chance to name any newly spotted shark at the island in a silent, onboard auction.
Shark Sighting Guarantee
We guarantee you will see a great white shark while at the island, or we will take you back to the island at no extra charge!
