Trip #2 to Isla Guadalupe!
the second trip of the season, with three excellent days of diving at
the island! We arrived to Isla Guadalupe around 8:45 on Sunday, and
we had the first group of divers into the surface cages by 10:00 am.
We had fourteen certified divers on this trip, all of which were
excited about getting a look from below in the submersible cages.
The morning started off with a pair of great whites swimming in the
area, and in the afternoon things started to pick up! We had much
more great white action around the cages, with up to four of them
passing by at the same time! Our second day was even better, and
just might have been the best day of this trip! The first person was
ready to get in the water at 7:00 am, and we already had two sharks
waiting for him! The submersible cage started it's rotation around
9:00 am after everyone had a good breakfast. We had shark activity
all day long, with as many as six sharks at once! Our last day
started off with sharks down deep in the morning, but picked up in
the afternoon when they started to hang around closer to the surface!
Overall, the three days of diving were really good, our guests had a
lot of fun in and out of the cages from seven am to six pm! They had
plenty of opportunities to get good photos and video of these
incredible animals. Some even capture the sharks with their jaws
open with chum inside their mouth, others got some excellent images
of great white breaches! Another Solmar V trip full of happy people
with stories to tell!
