They say the best way to conquer your fear is to face it head on…
Especially if your greatest fear comes in the shape of a great white shark. Sayyyy what??!
Hollywood has thoroughly terrified us with stories of these mysterious creatures. Who hasn’t seen the cult classic, Jaws? Then there’s Deep Blue Sea, The Shallows and the very recent, 47 Meters Down. These movies have planted a fear of these creatures so deep within us that the mere thought of swimming on the surface of the ocean unaware of what might be circling below you is nothing short of a nightmare.
Well, your scariest dreams can come true!
Guadalupe Island in Mexico is known as one of the best spots in the world to witness great white sharks in their natural habitat.
A shark diving trip to Guadalupe Island takes about 5-6 days and the itinerary includes several cage dives with the underwater beasts. Vessels traveling to the island offer comfortable accommodation and good food. The trip costs about US$3000 depending on the package you choose. We’re big fans of the company Shark Diver, which donates much of their trip profits to shark research and conservation.
