Going face-to-face with a great white shark in the wild is something you will never forget. The highly experienced divemasters will be alongside you in the submersible cages to both critter point and ensure your safety. Guadalupe Island (Mexico) is the top destination to dive with great white sharks. This small volcanic island located in the Pacific 240 kilometers (150 miles) off the west coast of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula outperforms both South Africa and Australia with shark-seeing consistency and watching conditions. Only Guadalupe Island can boast shark viewing in beautiful clear blue water with 125 – 150 foot visibility. Nautilus Belle Amie doesn’t chum/feed the sharks, so you will encounter them with their natural behaviour.
