100% Success Record
We have a 100% success record diving with White Sharks. We guarantee you will see Great White Sharks on your trip or you can come again with us for free.
All boats must clear customs with authorities in Ensenada, Mexico when going to and from Guadalupe Island. On every trip, without exception. Although the Islander is an American flagged vessel and can board our passengers in the U.S., we choose to depart from Ensenada. This saves our passengers 20+ hours of additional ocean travel compared to boarding the boat at our home dock in San Diego.
We are the only business shark diving at Guadalupe Island to receive a special recognition award from CONANP in conjunction with SEMARNAT, PROCER, and Reserva de la Biosfera Isla Guadalupe, achieving 100% in all qualifying categories.
100% Safety Record
A 100% undisputed diving safety record. We've had zero cage breaches, accidents or incidents between a shark cage and a Great White Shark at Guadalupe Island.
Not only is our U.S. crew the most experienced dive operators at Guadalupe Island, they are all federally licensed and participate in the U.S. Coast Guard’s random drug testing program.
USCG Certified Vessel
Our vessel, M/V Islander, is fully licensed, annually inspected, certified and safeguarded by the United States Coast Guard.
Although our vessel can accommodate up to 33 passengers, we limit our divers to only 16 per trip. We keep our groups small to offer our divers a unique & personal experience. This increases your cage time and allows us to maintain an exceptional crew to diver ratio.
