The trip was phenomenal! Blow my expectation out of the water! We saw over 30 different great white sharks. We didn't have to worry about a thing, they took care of everything. The food on the boat was excellent, we never went hungry that's for sure.

My Fiancee and I went on the 5 day trip to Guadalupe Island and I'm still trying to find a way to put in to words what a phenomenal experience it was! It was one of the most incredible experiences of my life and I can't recommend it enough, if there was something better than a 5 star rating I would rate it that. Much better than 5 star! My Fiancee had doubts for the cost and the diving but was easily and quickly turned into a believer. We would have gone straight back out if I could! Cindy was brilliant at her job answering my million questions, and Martin too who was on the trip. The boat was comfortable, amazing food, and the staff incredible. I couldn't fault anything!

I've just got back from the 5 day trip to Guadalupe Island and I'm still trying to find a way to put in to words what a phenomenal experience it was! It was one of the most incredible experiences of my life and I can't recommend it enough - I had doubts for the cost but it was worth every single penny. I would have gone straight back out if I could! I went solo and others in the group were from all walks of life but we were united in our shared passion for sharks and nature, and we came together in this wonderful shared experience. Cindy was brilliant at her job answering my million questions, and Martin too who was on the trip. The boat was comfortable, delicious food (plentiful!) and the staff incredible. I couldn't fault anything!

Hannah! We loved having you on board. Thank you for such a heartfelt review of your experience with Shark Diver. We are excited that you had the chance to share your 'passion for sharks' with strangers who eventually became your friends at sea. We hope those friendships remain. Maybe a reunion tour is in your future! Martin and I, and the crew can't wait for your return. Oh, and the sharks will be pretty excited to see you too. Thank you again for choosing Shark Diver and traveling from so far away to fulfill your dream of diving with great whites. ~Cindy, Shark Diver

Everything about this trip was great, from the organization to the sharks. It started in May when I booked the trip. Cindy was great in getting back to me on answering all my questions and throughout the days approaching the trip. Once we started the trip and boarded the boat for the sail out to Guadalupe island, I was very impressed with the boat, staterooms, and crew. They kept us well informed about the schedule. The food was incredible. Three top class meals a day, with snacks in betweens and fantastic margaritas after a day of diving. The cook and cabin just were very accommodating to any special request. Once we arrived at the island and started diving, the sharks were awe inspiring to see. We had three cages, two surface and one that went down to 30 feet. Lots of time to go down and see the sharks. At least four dives a day and the hot tub on deck was a great treat to warm up a bit in between dives. In the evenings Martin have some great briefings about the sharks behavior, such as migration habits, how to identify different sharks, etc. And the crew even put together a great video at the end of the trip for everyone to take home. The salon was very spacious with a few couches, television and bar. We watched a few movies in the evening and shared all of our go pro videos and pictures. Excellent vacation! Thank you shark diver.

What an amazing vacation!!! I’ve only been home a week and wish I was still back in the water watching the sharks swimming around. The booking process thru Cindy was very fast and easy, with all questions answered quickly and trip updates and details sent out well in advance. The trip itself completely exceeded my expectations. On the first morning I don’t even think it took 15 minutes for the first Great White to show!! They are amazing animals and it’s truly a unique and exciting experience to share their environment with them, even for a little while. I was able to spend a large part of my time in the water and enjoyed every second of it!! The crew was very skilled at helping everyone in and out of the cages efficiently as well as making sure we had everything we needed. The boat itself had comfortable accommodations for the 5 night stay and the food was excellent. There was plenty of community gathering places on the boat besides the individual rooms and it was fun to get to know everyone. Absolutely enjoyed the captain, crew, chef and hostess on the trip - they took great care to make the trip extra special. Back to the sharks - Martin shared a lot of information and spent the time helping us get to know the sharks, as well as answering so many questions!! Thanks Martin for sharing so much with us!! I will make this trip again as soon as I can and if you want to spend time with Great White Sharks this is an excellent trip to book!!
