Go Cage Diving with Great Whites in California

Farallon Islands off San Francisco, California

Depth: 30m (99ft)
Visibility: 3-30m (9-99ft)

This wildlife refuge, approximately 30 miles off the coast of San Francisco, gained its popularity in the diving community for so many reasons. The Farallon Islands are the only place in the world where Great White Sharks can be witnessed behaving naturally in the wild.

Because this is a wildlife refuge there is no feeding allowed. Instead, guides take divers out at the height of season, when the whites migrate to feast on sea lions and seals, and will sometimes use a seal decoy, if necessary, to lure the sharks in. This dive is indisputably one of a kind.
