Great White Shark Cage Diving at Guadalupe Island
The Guadalupe island shark diving season is from August to November, when the ocean is calmest, and colder sea temperatures of 66 to 72°F (19°C to 22°C) are to be expected at this time of year. Great whites, tuna, Guadalupe fur seals and sea lions are most frequently sighted during the August, September and October period. Over 250 different white sharks have been identified since the first expedition to the Island with America’s Shark Boat in 2000.
Guadalupe island is an extinct volcanic island, 17 miles (25 km) long, north to south, and 6 miles (10 km) wide, with several islets dotting its coastline. The island itself has a population of just over 200 people, including, fishermen and Mexican Navy personnel. But it is its population of 10,000+ Guadalupe fur seals (Arctocephalus townsendi) – their only major breeding site – and northern elephant seals (Mirounga angustirostris) that attract the sharks. The island has been a seal sanctuary since 1975 and is a designated biosphere reserve.
