Guadalupe Island (Isla Guadalupe) is a volcanic island and popular liveaboard destination reached from Ensenada with some operators meeting their guest in San Diego.
The island is 241 kilometers (150 mi) off the west coast of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula and some 400 kilometers (250 mi) southwest of the city of Ensenada.
Great Whites are the reason divers make the long trip here.
The cage diving may be the best in the world. The Great Whites, Guadalupe fur seals, tuna, and sea lions are most frequently sighted from August to October.
The ocean is calmest at this time however, divers can expect colder sea temperatures of 66 to 72°F (19°C to 22°C).
