We are inviting a small group of people to join us for a weekend liveaboard open ocean shark adventure in the waters off San Pedro, in Southern California to seek out makos and blue sharks. We have been seeking out pelagic sharks in Southern California since 2004 and we have found them every season, and this season our Captain has also encountered salmon sharks, and a juvenile great white in the are we will be visiting, so you just never know what the ocean will bring you. Every day is different out there and we are thrilled about going back out to see what gifts the ocean gives us this time.
We will be leaving around 12 midnight, on Thursday September 5, and we will return to port at 8PM, Sunday, September 8. So we will have 3 full days (including 2 full nights) of chumming for blues and makos.
Please note that the trip is strictly a snorkel encounter - NOT a scuba diving encounter, (it will not be allowed, as it scares the sharks) so we will be snorkeling with the pelagic species only. Makos spook easily so we will not allow scuba tanks to be used.
There are also NO CAGES or chainmail suits offered for the mako shark snorkel, so it is important that you are comfortable with up close encounters with pelagic sharks, as well as swimming in the open ocean. Drift lines will be put out in case of surface currents. Swimming and snorkeling skills are important
There may also be opportunities to encounter mola molas, and/or risso dolphins or blue whales when we are out there. These are rare gifts from the sea, and the only way to find these animals is thru natural encounters. So while we motor out we will have our eyes focused on the ocean in hopes that a mola is sunning its self, or that we pass a whale or a pod of risso dolphins.
