2019 White Shark Cage Diving Adventures at Guadalupe Island

We’re celebrating 19 shark diving seasons at Guadalupe island this year. That’s 19 years of thrills and shark diving excitement. 19 years of shark conservation, and 19 years of A Plus ratings from shark divers as far away as Russia and the EU. Here’s a look back at a few TripAdvisor reports from our divers:


Horizon Charters Great White Expedition September, 2018. By far the best liveaboard shark cage diving operation I have experienced in all my years of shark diving from Fiji to Bahamas. The Horizon shark crew was extremely helpful and accommodating of all requests. The ship has a perfect layout for suiting up, ease of entering and exiting the water and topside viewing of surface action as the sharks moved in and out of the stern cage area. I can’t say enough about the dive master Lalo Saidy. They made the great white shark experience spectacular. The food om the MV Horizon is tasty and made to order (I don’t eat meat so I enjoyed salmon and tuna all week). The entire crew including Captain Spencer (White SHAAARK!) were top notch offering professional shark diving, well maintained equipment and shark boat. Do this trip!


You will never regret going on this shark dive. It is a definite bucket list. It was an epic way of celebrating our birthday with the entire group of 9 divers and friends. If you wonder if the boat, crew, and sharks are worth the wait, they are. Book the MV Horizon today!

The white sharks at Guadalupe Island are amazing, on the first day we had sharks all day long at our cages (September 2018). I barely had time for breakfast or lunch before it was time to go see the sharks.  The MV Horizon crew are a great bunch of professional shark divers. They got up early and stayed up late to make sure things were perfect for all the guests. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner were great. You will leave the MV Horizon with lasting friends it’s truely a trip of a lifetime!


First off, GREAT WHITE SHARKS? We saw over 25 of them! This time of year (Time of the Titans) is all females with a few male white sharks which got up close for endless photo opportunities each shark dive day. On this trip to Guadalupe Island we did not go on a single dive without seeing at least four sharks. Mv Horizon has two giant surface shark cages which I highly recommend. White sharks are on the surface 90% of the time and get very close to the hang baits at the shark cages. There was never a problem finding a spot in one of these cages.  The crew on the MV Horizon is excellent, I felt like a king all day long. Shark Crew members care about making your shark trip as special as possible.The sharks came very close to the cages while the crew shark wrangled, it was full on sharks all day long! Go with Horizon you cannot beat it!


The highlight was getting into the water with the sharks. Absolutely magnificent. Many dives there were multiple sharks, as many as 4 in the area at a time. The visibility was very good – probably 150′ or more the first day, close to 100′ on days 2 and 3 – and there was some other sea life as well – tuna and schools of bait fish. But the sharks were the main attraction, and they did not disappoint.The entire shark diving experience was over the top excellent and far exceeded my expectations. Food is excellent; cage diving is amazing and well organized to optimize dive time. Highly recommend the experience at Guadalupe with America’s Shark Boat!. Thanks Horizon!
