Join us for a Great White Shark Photo Excursion
to Guadalupe Island Aboard the Solmar V Oct. 3-7, 2011
5 days/4 nights (3 days of sharking) out of San Diego
$2900 per person
The food on the Solmar V is really good and plentiful! Each morning we'll be served a hot breakfast made to order. Of course they have coffee, tea, cereals and fruit for the early risers. Both Lunch and dinner are a sit-down three course meal. If things get especially active with the sharks, they'll keep the dive deck open and serve up a simpler lunch, such as tacos or sandwiches, so we can eat quick and get back in the water. There is also plenty of snacking between meals too. On top of this, We'll will put in our order for extra chocolate for our charter and Margaritas for happy hour!
TRIP REQUIREMENTS: You don't need to be a certified diver to come on this trip! Since we are on HOOKA, not SCUBA you do not need certification. You should be comfortable breathing through a regulator in a cage. You might not want to come on this trip if:
- you get seriously seasick. The crossing is about 20 hours.
- you are afraid of sharks.
- you are not a fun, adventurous person. No whiners!
Camera Recommendations - Bring a still or video camera with a wide-angle lens. The sharks are big and they do get very close. At least one external strobe is recommended, but if your camera shoots in RAW format you can get great pictures even without a strobe. We'll show you how. There will be no macro opportunities. If you need help getting your camera set up for this trip, or need camera rental gear please contact me ahead of time.
Of course you may just want to come to enjoy the experience also and leave your camera at home. That's OK too!
