Going to Cage Dive with Sharks at Guadalupe Island? | Information
One of the best things about going on a cage dive with sharks is that it requires very little equipment, other than a professional shark boat and the cage of course. In fact, many organisers of cage dives use surface air rather than air tanks. Of course, you do need to wear a regulator and weights, but that is mainly to ensure you are comfortable whilst in the cage.
