Great White Shark Diving with Nautilus Belle Amie
Join DDS as we host one of our favourite dive trips…Great White Shark Diving with Nautilus Belle Amie.
Have you ever seen a shark in the wild? Have you ever wanted to see them up close and personal? Great White sharks are one of the most fascinating fish in the sea and hands down the most misunderstood. See them in their natural habitat as they swim, breech and feast on tuna and maybe even an elephant seal or two.
Diving with sharks is something many people dream about and in 2011 our dream came true the first time as we hosted 2 amazing trips to Guadalupe. History repeated itself again in 2013 and 2015 and now in 2019 we hope to return to one of our favourite and most spiritual places.
Great white shark encounters at Guadalupe Island are nothing short of spectacular. Guadalupe feels like a remote outpost at the end of the earth but is actually incredibly easy to get to. Our trips meet in San Diego, California with coach transfers to Ensenada, Mexico. It’s the best destination in the world for calm, clear water and a consistently high probability of multiple shark encounters per day in a pair of 30′ submersible underwater cages which allows us to capture breathtaking photos and videos from a different vantage point than just diving from a surface cage.
The sheer number of animals in the bay we dive is jaw-dropping and utterly amazing. We see great whites nearly every series of dives. The bay itself is home to 228 recognized individuals ranging from 12 to over 20 feet long! At times, we have seen as many as nine sharks on one dive—and that’s because Guadalupe is just the sort of place where magic regularly happens in the water.
This once in a lifetime trip offers the largest concentration of Great White Sharks in one place anywhere in the world.
Even the island itself, 180 miles from the Mexico coastline, seems magical. The coast of Guadalupe is 25 miles of rocky cliffs, but above this is dense forest, giving it the feel of an exotic, South Pacific destination. You can expect between 100 and 150 feet of visibility. We can literally see the sharks come in from beyond the anchor line. Nothing but clear, cobalt blue water.
Moreover, this experience isn’t limited to advanced divers. You don’t need to be a certified scuba diver to join us, although we recommend you take a Discover Scuba Diving course prior to your trip, and possess a strong in-water comfort.
All certified divers will have the opportunity for a minimum of three dives per day in the submersible cages—and your trip includes the opportunity for unlimited time in the surface cages. Divemasters are in the water during every submersible-cage dive to ensure your safety. Note that the surface cages open at 6:30 a.m., and diving in the submersible cages begins at 8 a.m. Both are available until dusk.
Our conservation efforts also continue at night when we kick back in the salon and identify who we spent the day with. And should you realize that you hung out with a great white shark not yet catalogued, yes, the naming rights are all yours.
