Do I have to be scuba certified to cage dive?
No you don’t. At Guadalupe Island, Mexico white shark cage diving is done from a cage where you are given a surface supplied regulator and all your dive gear. You only descend about 10 feet, so you’re in an extremely controlled environment.
How safe is it to cage dive in Mexico?
Shark cage tour operators use chum as bait, placing bloody fish parts in the water to attract sharks. Others bait, or “wrangle” the sharks, by throwing tuna tied to a rope into the water and pulling it toward the cage. In some extreme cases this ends with the sharks inside the cages. Over the past 18 years at Guadalupe Island America’s Shark Boat has maintained a 100% safety record for divers and sharks!
