Shark Cage Diving For Kids | Shark Diving Guadalupe Island
Have you planned this year’s family adventure yet? Disney is so….not cage diving with great white sharks!
Shark cage diving has long been thought of as a solo diving sport and not family friendly. Yet, thank to a few specialized shark boats, over the last decade families with kids have begun to explore safe shark cage diving adventures. Shark diving with kids is not only introducing a next generation to what an amazing place the underwater world is, but these kids are making a difference to our oceans and the sharks that live it in. Who said shark divers couldn’t be kids?
Shark Cage Diving with Kids at Guadalupe Island
At Guadalupe Island America’s Shark Boat created a cage diving operation that caters to families. Shark cage diving is a sport that is often thought to be dangerous or appealing just to men, but we have seen an influx of families within the last decade at Guadalupe. Kids love to shark dive. Families love exploring new adventures together and have discovered that stepping out of their comfort zone is liberating and, when face to face with a great white shark, almost addictive. To ensure they have a great time vessels like the MV Horizon have created operations that focus on safety and experience with over 18 years of operational know how with surface cages supplied by dedicated air systems.
Shark Diving Kids Programs
One of our favorite programs for kids to learn about sharks is Sharks4Kids. The goal of Sharks4Kids is to create a new generation of shark advocates through access to a dynamic range of educational materials. Curriculum, games and activities will allow teachers to integrate shark education into their science programs on an introductory, intermediate or advanced level. Students can access games, activities and info sheets to satisfy their own curiosity about sharks. Photos and videos from scientists and conservationists bring an exciting element into the classroom and show students the beauty of the ocean.
