Dive with Shortfin Mako Sharks!
are well known as the fastest shark in sea. Aggressive
hunters, makos are all business; they come in lightening
fast, hit the bait hard and then quickly disappear unless
you have master shark wranglers onboard to keep them around
captivate everyone that dives with them. Their iridescent
cobalt blue flanks glow in the sunlight as they swim
gracefully towards you. Curious and bold but rarely
aggressive, blue sharks make fantastic snorkeling companions and
even better photography subjects.
Dive with Pacific Angel Sharks!
are rarely seen by divers because they are ambush hunters
that hide under the sand until an unsuspecting fish swims too
close to their fang filled mouths. We will be heading to a
secret spot located among the Channel Islands where angel
sharks aggregate in large numbers. With luck, we
should be ale to find numerous sharks lounging on the sea
bed. If you've always wanted to see this species, this is
probably the best chance you will ever have!
Dive with other California Shark Species!
We may also encounter horn sharks,
swell sharks, leopard sharks and tope sharks free swimming
through the kelp or nestled among the coral encrusted rocks.
Our focus is to dive with makos but we will also keep our
eyes peeled for other shark species that are common in
