Tonight I’m posting something different. I think you need something different from time to time and so do I. For your viewing pleasure, I present to you “The Beast”. I took this picture off the coast of Isla de Guadalupe Mexico in 2012. It took us 30 hours by boat to reach this spot. We traveled from San Diego and by boat to Ensenada Mexico where we checked in with Customs. Then from Ensenada, we made the long crossing to Guadalupe.
Once on site, we anchored off shore and drove with the Great Whites for three days. I don’t know how many different Great Whites we saw, but they circled us on every dive. Sometimes there would be only one at a time, other times there was up to 5 at time….that we could see. So I don’t know if there were only 5 sharks or 50 different sharks. In the end, it doesn’t matter. We had a great experience and enjoyed the show.
The Beast in this photo was typical of the 14 footers we experienced. Large, graceful, and just amazing.
