When you depart for the Farallons, you'll be in the very good hands of our excellent shark crew. Lead by Director of West Coast Shark Ops, Greg Barron, the gang will make sure you're well-fed and well-prepared for an incredible day of shark diving. You'll learn about the wonders of the Farallons from one of our great naturalists and cage dive under the watchful eyes of our certified dive instructors.
Expect to see a lot of IA crew shirts on your great white shark
expedition. We aim to staff our shark boats with at least one
crew member for every three or four cage divers. It's important
to us that there's always someone nearby to take your picture,
help you into your wetsuit or hand you a cup of hot coffee when
you step out of the water.
Each Incredible Adventures white shark expedition is staffed
with one or more naturalists trained and certified by the Gulf
of the Farallones Sanctuary, a certified dive instructor and several
all-around crew and customer service "fanatics" dedicated to making
your white shark expedition the trip of a lifetime.
After a fun day or two at sea, Greg and the IA shark team will
send you home with memories of an incredible place and a newfound
appreciation for great white sharks and their habitat.
