Our very own Troy headed out for a solo trip to Guadalupe Island, not just for any type of diving, but cage diving with Great Whites! Our trusty owner was scouting this trip to see if it was worth taking you, our fantastic customers, at a later date. His verdict was an enthusiastic "Yes!" as the diving "blew his expectations out of the water!" and you can expect to see this trip on our itinerary in the near future.

Even as they departed dolphins played alongside their boat, a sure sign of the incredible diving ahead. Multiple cages supplied divers with virtually unlimited cage time, while divers in the boat across the way (from another company) not only shared scheduled cage time but ended up getting kicked out for not having permits!! While the unhappy customers were sent packing, the extremely satisfied customers on Troy's boat continued enjoying scrumptious food and fantastic diving. On the surface they were fed lobster, fresh tuna (caught by the crew), and much more. Below the surface they were all jumping into the numerous cages and watching Whites all around, at one point Troy jumped into the submersible and was surrounded by 3 in his tiny cage!

When Troy comes back as excited as he was on this trip you know it was something special. He has traveled to more places then pretty much anyone I know, and I think I was most jealous of this particular trip. Head over to our Facebook page to see all the great photos that he took, and be sure to stay tuned to our trips so you don't miss out on the adventure when it comes around! Watch our blog in the next couple weeks as the store heads back to Cozumel for what continues to be a wonderful tropical tradition. Until next time...keep Scublogging!
