How to get to Guadalupe Island | Cage Diving

Cage Diving at Guadalupe Island

Getting to Guadalupe island is as easy as one, two, three. Located 210 miles from San Diego, California and 115 miles SW of Ensenada, Mexico, Guadalupe Island and world class shark cage diving is an approximately 18-hour crossing aboard America’s Shark Boat. Joining us in San Diego is the hardest part, from there you’re in for 5 days of adventure!

Joining America’s Shark Boat at Guadalupe Island

Our shark divers boat America’s Shark Boat in San Diego and we arrive Guadalupe Island on Day 2 in the early morning, which gives us plenty of time to get our Guadalupe shark cages in the water and begin your unforgettable adventure. Our cages are in the water from sunrise to sunset on Day 2, 3 and 4.

Our onboard amateur naturalist, Lalo, has been with us for over 5 years and has developed quite a following among our guests. Lalo is Guadalupe’s top shark diving guide and loves the opportunity to share his knowledge of the great white sharks you’ll be diving with, creating a fantastic opportunity for shark photography and white shark videos.

You’ll say good-by to the huge great white shark population of Guadalupe Island at the end of Day 4, our guests settle in for the comfortable crossing back to San Diego, arriving by noon on Day 5.

Dive on America’s Shark Boat

We specialize in taking non certified divers, or first time shark divers, into the exciting world of great white sharks. Dive with us and discover hands on shark research and shark conservation at Guadalupe Island. Shark Diving For Everyone is our commitment to showcase the incredible world of white sharks with a combination of 18 years of cage diving experience, a cage system designed exclusively for non divers, top notch shark staff and cage diving crews with years of hands on shark experience. We have been cage diving and naming many of the white sharks you’ll be diving with this year.

From the incredible 19+ foot Deep Blue, most likely the largest great white shark in the Pacific, to many of our regular white sharks like Scarboard, Lucy, and Mau. These amazing animals have become more than just whites sharks at Guadalupe Island to us as we encounter them year after year – we met Scarboard 16 years ago – they have become our sharky friends. Let’s dive!
