Video: Divers Leave Cage to Dive with a Great White at Guadalupe Island

In this video posted today on Youtube, we see several divers exit the safety of  a cage to dive with a great white shark at Guadalupe Island.

We first see the divers outside the cage at about the 30 second mark.  The shark appears to pay no attention to the them as it continues to swim around.  At around the 2:20 mark, we see one diver attempt to touch the upper lobe of the shark's caudal fin.

There's a reason that many consider Guadalupe Island to be the premiere location to see great whites. Not only are the chances quite high that you will spot them in these waters but the visibility is second to none.

The video was posted by DiVentures and is just over 6 minutes in length.

As a regular camper and hiker, I have read a bunch of articles on how to avoid encounters with wild animals. However, the Guadalupe shark adventure is real crazy. Those divers are either to confident or the sharks have grown soft. Either way, it’s always advisable to keep distance between you and wild beasts.

Close encounters with wild animals may turn out to be a great experience or something very costly. I suggest that you don't fool around with these wild creatures and at all times, respect for what they are and what they can do is important. If you want to avoid unnecessary injury, stay proactive and find out how you can stay safe at all times. Being a regular camper, I can't say that I've mastered the wild because I've realized that I still have a lot to learn when it comes to survival.
