Just completed the great white shark trip at Guadalupe Island and it was worth every penny. Cindy at Shark Diver made the booking process very easy. She was communicative, helpful, and very easygoing. I didn't have a single question leading up to the trip because she provided all the necessary info well in advance. Martin, the owner, attended the journey and he was equally awesome. He made sure the trip went off without a hitch and provided invaluable info throughout. Whether the subject was sharks, boats, camera gear, diving gear, crossing the US/Mexico border--Martin had an answer for everything. He also has a zillion interesting stories on all manner of subjects. As for the trip, it lived up to every expectation: the boat was safe and comfortable, the crew was accommodating and professional, the water was crystal clear, and the sharks were plentiful. (And huge... and amazing.) I strongly recommend Shark Diver. They're easy to work with and they know what they're doing. I'll definitely book with them again in the future. Thanks, Martin and Cindy!

This trip to Guadalupe Island with Shark Diver was a trip of a lifetime. Everything was perfect. The Crew, The Food, Martin and Cindy and the location. The CREW. These dedicated crew members met our every need and are some of the most amazing people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting on a trip like this. In just 5 days the relationship with the crew is strong, they know you all by name, they know what you like, they all have amazing stories of their lives to tell you, and they really do feel like friends by the end of the trip. The FOOD. 5 STAR meals and desserts coming out of the galley all day long was second to none. I really can not say enough about the crew and chef. I’ve had some of my best meals of all time on that boat, which was They really made the trip special and far exceeded any expectations of what 5 days living on a boat would be like. Martin, the owner, his fun loving demeanor on the boat, and expertise on Sharks made this trip not only casual and fun, but also educational and helped everyone understand the life and behaviors of sharks, cleared many “myths” about these beautiful creatures that are often viewed how we see them sensationalized in the movies.. You will see they are anything but that. Intelligent, cautious, and never aggressive the Sharks are truly a sight to behold. Martin is a truly a dedicated individual who has made sharks his life. His stories of the sharks and other life experiences were a pleasure to listen to the entire time. He is an exceptional human and feel lucky to have my life path cross his. With ZERO diving experience I was able to quickly learn to use the equipment and was in the cage viewing these amazing sharks in minutes, thanks again to the dedicated and expert dive masters. The organization and communication before the trip was also flawless. Inquiries and any questions were answered almost immediately by Cindy whenever I asked, and updates from the Shark Diver team were frequent and informative leading up to the trip. They really take care of EVERYTHING. All you have to do is have your Identification and forms in order and they do the rest. Just show up and prepare for one of the most breathtaking moments of your life. Additionally, you will get to experience this with a large group of people also there for the same reason as you, which makes the trip even more enjoyable. I really could go on and on. I will be diving with them again in the near future for sure. When you are asked” what was the best part of the trip?” and you struggle between the sharks, the crew, the food the owner and organization as a whole, you know you have experienced something special. I encourage you to join them on this adventure even if you have reservations of any kind. Thank You Shark Diver team and Crew of the Nautilus! Hope to see you all again, soon. -Kipp

Awesome experience with Great White Sharks in Guadalupe! Martin and Cindy are just great, responsive, knowledgable and kind! The crew at Natutilus is just amazing in every single way which is a perfect combination with Martin! We got to see dozens of sharks and the ID process is just amazing as well! Thanks for everything, I highly recommend Shark Diver and looking forward to do the bull sharks in Fiji!

We just finished diving with the Great Whites at Guadalupe Island. It was incredible!! We were in and out of the cages from 630am until 5. We were so lucky to have 29 different White Sharks visit us! The food on the Nautilus was 5star gourmet! The crew was fun, professional, extremely accommodating. They took the time to make sure our trip was the best it could be. Martin Graff is an endless source of information and stories. Having him on board was fantastic. Cindy Michael’s was incredible to work with over the last year with COVID-19 disrupting all the plans. They worked so hard to get the trips going again. Thank you for an amazing trip. As a bonus, I was celebrating my birthday this month and they had my room decked out with sharks!!!
