Mystery Dive Spot is Guadalupe Island
Great White Sharks
Guadalupe Island is fast becoming recognized as the premiere destination to view, photograph and video Carchardon Carcharias, the great white shark, in its' natural environment.
Located 165 miles from Ensenada, Mexico, Guadalupe's rugged landscape, consists of two ancient overlapping shield volcano's: Mount Augusta and El Picacho. This large island measures 22 miles long with a surface area of 98 square miles.
Once a stop for fur traders, Guadalupe Island is now a refuge for the Northern Elephant Seal, Guadalupe Fur Seal and California Sea Lion. This island was declared a pinniped sanctuary by the Mexican Government in 1975 and was one of the last strongholds for the Elephant & Fur seals against hunters.
