Boarding Night

Welcome aboard America’s Shark Boat! Your Guadalupe Island shark cage diving adventure starts right here. Horizon Charters' helpful crew members will show you to your vessel accommodations in San Diego and get you settled into your cage diving home away from home for the next few days. Ship orientation and departure tonight. Guadalupe Island and great white sharks here we come!


Day 1

After leaving San Diego Bay you will enter Mexican waters while passing Islas Coronados. You are now officially on your way to Guadalupe Island for the best cage diving with great white sharks in the world. Today is a day of travel and relaxation while the crew prepares for the next few days of shark diving. This is your chance to get your sea legs and get prepared for tomorrow and your first cage dives with the white sharks of Guadalupe!

Day 2

Welcome to the “Island of the Great White Sharks,” Guadalupe Island! The shark cages are deployed by 7:00 am each morning with white shark encounters to follow for the entire day. You may take a break at lunch, depending on the morning's viewing activity, and we will stop sharking at last light from the mountains each day when the sharks start their nightly seal hunt at depth. Plus, dinner is calling in the galley. Oh, and one last thing, when you go to sleep tonight know that just a few feet away from your bunk, white sharks are prowling below you, sleep tight!

Day 3

Main day shark diving for everyone. By now you are a newly minted Horizon Charters Shark Diver, congratulations we knew you could do it! The shark diving pool is open at first light and with a small group of shark divers aboard, usually, half of the divers are in and half are out of the water on 1-hour cage diving rotations that will last another full day today. Enjoy an epic dinner tonight, as they always celebrate our Guadalupe shark divers on Day 3!

Day 4

On Day 4 you depart Guadalupe Island shortly after lunch for San Diego. This is your last chance to say goodbye to your great white shark friends, and for your last cage diving moments at the island. Be sure to have your cameras ready as you pass the famous Shark Fin Rock on the way back. Adios Isla Guadalupe!

Day 5

You will travel north to San Diego, California for a 3:30 to 5:00 pm arrival in port. Horizon Charters will arrange your shuttle to the airport or your local accommodations. Congratulations! You are officially a shark diver!
