Several years ago the idea of jumping into a shark-infested ocean just for the thrill of it was reserved for a handful of crazy researchers and photographers. It had little appeal to the general public. Because of the bad rap they got from the media and movies, these sharks were feared by most. As more people tried it and came back with all their limbs and stories of face-to-face encounters, more wanted to do it. Today the shark diving adventure is open to just about everyone. You don't even need to be a scuba diver to do it! Making a trip to Guadalupe Island is now a luxury live-aboard experience on the 112' Solmar V.
There are only a few places in the world where predictable shark encounters can be found. Guadalupe Island, off the west coast of the Baja peninsula, is by far the most popular in North America. With up to 100' visibility and water temperatures between 67° to 72° F, shark diving at Guadalue Island has quickly found it's way to many adventure-seekers "bucket list".
It wasn't long ago that the fishermen around Guadalupe Island complained of large sharks stealing their catch before they could reel it in. The reports happened consistently year after year. Now the months of August, September and October are prime time to get up close and personal to the ultimate apex predator...the great white shark.
