Join us on an adventure of a lifetime -- observe great white sharks in their natural habitat. Spend five nights aboard the Nautilus Explorer, and travel to the small volcanic island of Guadalupe (located 150 miles off the west coast of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula).

We’ll spend three days cage diving in the beautiful, clear, dark blue water which provides over 125-foot visibility, giving the best shark viewing conditions of any location in the world! Nautilus Explorer was custom built for divers – designed with heavy, strong steel construction and sound proofing to offer the highest possible level of comfort and safety. The crew takes exceptional pride in keeping the boat clean and running smoothly.
