SHARK ADVENTURES ISLA GUADALUPE SAMPLE ITINERARY
Arrive San Diego, California to begin your adventure with great white sharks! We will
have a hospitality suite available in San Diego after
noon. "Meet and greet" with one of our staff members in the
late afternoon and transfer to the ship in Ensenada by chartered
highway coach. Evening departure and overnight
run to Guadalupe Island.
At sea. Welcome Aboard safety briefing. Presentation on
Guadalupe great white sharks. Afternoon video and cocktail
hour. Arrival at our sheltered anchorage at Guadalupe Island
just before dinner time. We will put our shark cages in
the water tonight.
Cages open for diving at 0630. Shoreline expeditions daily
while on site to check out the local populations of elephant
seals, Guadalupe fur seals, California sea lions and even
the odd feral cat! We will wrap the diving at sunset and
finish the day with a crab feast on the hot-tub deck under
the Mexican sky.
Cages open for diving from 0630 until sunset. As Captain
Mike always says: "You can't see the sharks if you are not
in the water". This isn't strictly true as the surface action
with the white sharks can be almost as thrilling as being
in the cages. Plus we will also have an underwater "shark
cam" setup and constantly playing on the 42" plasma screen
in the main salon.
Our last dive day unfortunately. So sad. This is your last
chance to beat the record of 31.5 hours of cage time over
3 dive days!! The diving will wrap at 5pm today and then
it will be time to steam back to Ensenada.
Morning slideshow of the trip's highlights

Your Choice of 4 Vessels
The Nautilus Explorer - Our flagship featuring an all new super-large dive deck and water level platform combined with picture windows around the main salon and separate dining room. We love the Explorer and she looks fantastic with her recent stretch to 132 feet in length, new air conditioning and interior updates.
The Nautilus Belle Amie - The Belle Amie is the newest and largest of the Nautilus liveaboards. She feels like a five-star floating boutique hotel, boasting spacious salon and dining areas, as well as a second open-air bar on the sun deck, an expansive dive deck and, of course, a hot tub.
The Nautilus UnderSea - Many divers know this classic ship from her previous life as the Undersea Hunter of Cocos Island and IMAX fame. With massive upgrades including stretching by 20 feet, a new superstructure, an enclosed dive deck and host of other improvements, it is hard to recognize the original ship. The special feature of the UnderSea is the intimate group size of just 18 divers combined with Nautilus spaciousness and comfort and a huge dive deck and water level platform. It is important to note that the ship was launched in 1968 and she is not as new and contemporary as our other ships.
Solmar V - The 112 ft Mexican flagged Solmar V is the luxury dive vessel that helped pioneer white shark cage diving at Isla Guadalupe. The vessel’s fully-carpeted interior is rich mahogany and brass, with granite tabletops. Staterooms have upper and lower berths and private bathrooms. Beer, wine and margaritas are included in the price of a Solmar V shark adventure.
