Submersible Cage with Great White Sharks

I’ve been on several shark dives but I’ve never had the opportunity to go down in a submersible cage surrounded by Great White Sharks up until now. I was amazed at how different the experience is when you’re 40-feet below the surface. It’s incredibly serene and really gives you a more connected experience with the sharks in their natural environment off the coast of Guadalupe Island.  Enjoy the video!

Guadalupe Island Geography via Wikipedia:

Guadalupe has a rugged landscape. It consists of two ancient overlapping shield volcanoes, of which the northern and higher volcano is the younger. The island measures 35 kilometres (22 mi) north-south and up to 9.5 kilometres (5.9 mi) east-west, with a total area of 243.988 km2 (94.204 sq mi). It features a chain of high volcanic mountain ridges which rises to a height of 1,298 metres (4,259 ft) at its northern end (Mount Augusta). Its smaller counterpart on the southern end is the 975 metres (3,199 ft) El Picacho. The southern part of the island is barren, but there are fertile valleys and trees in the northern part. The coast generally consists of rocky bluffs with detached rocks fronting some of them. Two high and prominent islets are within three kilometres (1.9 mi) of the southwestern end of the island, separated from one another by a gap called Tuna Alley

As you arrive at Guadalupe you are greeted by a rock structure which resembles a shark fin which I think is quite appropriate.

Another geographical landmark as you arrive at the island. Use your imagination to find the outline of a shark.

The cage is slowly lowered down to the appropriate depth for a completely different type of experience than the cages on the surface. A safety diver accompanied two divers on each trip.
