    1. Is shark diving safe?
      To date, this expedition has enjoyed a 100% operational record at every shark site it has operated in. This excellent record of shark interaction is a result of respect for the sharks and following careful safety protocol.
    2. Do I need qualifications to dive?
      Other than being reasonably physically fit, you do not have to be an expert diver to cage dive at the Isla Guadalupe white shark dive site. It is strongly suggested that non-divers take an "intro to diving" class at your local dive shop prior to arriving at the dive site.
    3. What's the minimum age?

      The minimum age a diver can be is as young as 7 to 9 years as long as the guardian and child are comfortable. The minimum age to come on board alone is 18 years old. 

    4. Do the sharks ever attack the cage?
      The sharks are not enticed to the cages, but you can expect very close passes within 12 inches at times.
    5. How big are the sharks?

      Isla Guadalupe Great Whites are primarily transitional sub adults, 12-16 feet in length.Later in the season it is possible to encounter sharks upwards of 18 feet. Late season sharks also come with a better chance of poor weather on site. Please take that into consideration when making your booking.

    6. Is cage diving always possible?
      On occasions adverse weather may prevent safe cage diving operations. Experienced dive operations managers will make the decision on whether your safety is at risk. The boat may be moved to a better location or the trip may be cancelled and rescheduled as soon as the weather improves. Safety is always the first priority.
    7. Is there a shark guarantee?
      Yes.This trip only runs during peak seasons and takes place in some of the word's most productive and pristine shark sites.All expeditions have a full and complete guarantee. If an expedition is cancelled due to weather or sharks are not present, you will have 2 years to make your return expedition with the option of gifting it to someone else if you choose.
    8. Can I get the Friends & Family Room, Double Room or Rosario Suite by myself?

      Yes you can, however there is limited availability for single occupancy rooms. Please contact Cloud 9 Living for pricing. 

    9. What time do we return on day 5?

      You will return on the 5th day between 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM, however, we encourage you to fly out the next day in case the boat encounters inclement weather and returns later than scheduled.
