"We are very happy to welcome the SOCORRO AGGRESSOR™. Guadalupe Island will offer our diving and non diving adventurers a chance to go cage diving with Great White Sharks. We are excited to share this mesmerizing and adrenaline pumping experience with our guests, says CEO Wayne Brown."
What's Special About the Itinerary
• The Socorro Aggressor travels here during the best time of the year.
• Guadalupe Island has clear water and reliable great white shark sightings.
• Experiencing the world's best encounters from the safety of a cage.
• Observing the sharks naturally from a depth where they normally congregate from the submersible cages.
The best great white encounters and cage diving in the world happen at Guadalupe Island. The 4-night Guadalupe itinerary provides an adventure to shark seekers who enter surface or submersible cages to experience seeing great whites up close and personal. The Socorro Aggressors anchorage is in a sheltered bay near Guadalupe Island where the cage diving shark encounter action will take place in clear blue water. The yacht stays here for 3 dive days where guests will rotate entering the cages every hour while seeing several sharks during each dive.
Guadalupe Island is located 200 miles southwest of Ensenada, Mexico on the Pacific coast of the Baja Peninsula. It is a rugged volcanic island, 25 miles long and the highest point is 4200 ft. The island is a Biosphere Reserve that is home to hundreds of migratory Great White Sharks from August to October, making Guadalupe an amazing way to encounter sharks while cage diving.
