Comments My 26 year old son and I agreed to do something different than the usual (for us) Caribbean coral reef dive trip. He did the research and it took less than two seconds for me to agree to go on a Nautilus dive trip taking videos of great white sharks. We flew into San Diego, met with the others taking this trip at the Ramada Inn, took a coach/bus down to Ensenada and by 9:30pm we were underway on the Nautilus Belle Amie for Guadalupe Island. It was about a 22 hr. ride to the island so we got there the next day and had plenty of time for orientation.

The set up for diving is perfect. Three deep water stainless steel cages are dropped to about 30 ft., a fourth cage is down to about 15 ft. and a fifth cage is at surface level. Times are scheduled on only the three deep cages and there is no shortage of available dives. We could get in all the diving we wanted.

This is a first class, luxury dive boat and there are no shortcuts taken. The accommodations are exceptional, the food outstanding and the crew are the best I've seen on any trip.

Of course, we didn't come to be pampered; we came to see great white sharks. On that front, we were pleasantly surprised to the absolute max. We saw great whites on every dive and got outstanding videos. I've been diving since the early '70's and this was the dive trip of a lifetime. Highly recommended!
