Animal Planet


If so, you've come to the right place. Islander Charters is locally owned and we've been safely delivering world-class Great White Shark Dives at Guadalupe Island since 2004. We offer 5 day, all-inclusive shark diving packages from San Diego, California aboard our vessel M/V Islander. Every trip departs from, and returns to San Diego, California with no bus transfers.

All Inclusive Pricing: $3195

Great White Shark Diving at Guadalupe Island

Our cage dives are all-inclusive packages with no hidden fees or costs. We include the following on every trip:

  • Four star meals, snacks and appetizers prepared by a professional chef
  • All beverages including house beer and wine
  • Air conditioned stateroom accomodations
  • Mexican tourist visas
  • Guadalupe Island Biosphere permits
  • Wetsuits, masks, weights and all related shark cage diving gear.

Limited Passenger Count:

Although our 88' vessel can comfortably accomodate up to thirty, we limit passengers to only 16. We keep our groups small to offer our shark cage divers a unique, personal experience. This increases your cage time and allows us to maintain an exceptional crew to passenger ratio of almost 1:2

Departures to Isla Guadalupe:

Islander Charters recognizes passenger concerns with regard to land travel in Mexico. In an effort to accomodate this concern all trips to Guadalupe Island depart and return to San Diego by boat. While a check-in and check-out with the authorities in Ensenada is mandatory for all shark diving vessels, our hands-on experience makes the process streamlined and efficient. We handle every detail from start to finish making your entire white shark diving experience seamless.
