Best of all you do not need to be dive certified to cage dive at this location, and departures are from San Diego, California. Vessels are located just minutes from the International airport for ease of travel.
Introducing the latest long range vessels to the Shark Diver fleet servicing Isla Guadalupe in 2007. The MV Islander, MV Horizon, MV Ocean Odyssey and the newest vessel, the Nautilus Explorer based in Mexico.
The vessels in the Shark Diver fleet feature a range of accommodations from private air conditioned staterooms offering individual thermostats and washbasins, plus every other diving amenity you and or your groups will need. All vessels have dedicated air system for shark cage operations, service the largest shark cages available and have full time experienced Great White crews. These guys know sharks. The vessels are excellent long range dive platforms for those seeking laid back comfort and style while diving with Great Whites.
They are primarily designed to cater to privacy seeking individual divers, selected dive groups, corporate groups world wide, professional filmmakers, and larger private parties of divers. If you're looking for comfort-attention to detail, corporate incentive, and or a unique meeting/strategy space these are the vessels for you. With the acquisition of the Nautilus Explorer into the shark diving fleet, the way adventure seekers think of shark diving has just changed again, forever.
Shark Diver has reviewed all the vessels shark cage designs. They feature unique external flotation pods allowing for more space and comfort inside the cages. Plus two unique external observation hatches for divers and film crews who are looking for another angle to film Great White Sharks. In short, one of Shark Divers most important considerations is cage design, and safety. We have ensured you'll have the best cages available to dive with; after all it's where you will be spending most of your time with us.
The shark diving crews look forward to assisting you, the professional or semi-professional, with all your underwater photographic needs. As a prime example of stunning underwater shark shots taken from Isla Guadalupe please spend some time with renound underwater photographer Phil Colla located at www.oceanlight.com or admire Ethan Gordons (Editor of Fathom Magazine) work at www.ethangordon.com.

Shark Diver can produce team shirts and hats with your brand on it, film and produce corporate sales videos and make your next corporate function one that will go down in your company's history.

Dive experience is not necessary, as always we'll work with your group to make this occasion one to remember. Why do the ordinary this year when the extraordinary is waiting for you in San Diego?
