Great White Sharks come in close to inspect divers
Scuba diving with Great White Sharks is an amazing experience. Near Guadalupe Island in Mexico is the perfect location to see these beautiful creatures in their natural habitat. More than 100 miles off the shore of Ensenada Mexico which is just across the U.S border, means this is quite the trip. Boarding a live aboard yacht the group endured an over night voyage to get to the dive sight.
Once there they were briefed on the very strict rules of engagement with these animals which is governed by the Mexican government. On board was also a government official to keep track and log the animals seen as the movements and return of these beautiful animals is of highest priority. Guadalupe Island is a mid point from the regular area the sharks live to their breeding grounds. Being a declared marine reserve the sharks are at no threat to humans making this the perfect location to view these beautiful animals in their natural environment.
Divers and animal lovers alike travel from all over the world to visit the Great Whites of Guadalupe. These massive animals can reach 20 feet long and nearly 5000 pounds. Amazing. Many say they feel intimidated and anxious at first when entering the water with these sharks, but that soon becomes amazement once you see how graceful they are. Curious may be the best way to describe the sharks with the divers. But beware, wild animals can never be predicted. This definitely is an experience that creates memories.
