1 - 2 times per year, we head for the ocean to tag more sharks, and we would love for you to join us!What? You don't know anything about tagging sharks? No worries. Here's what you'll need in order to join us.
In October 2009, we went to the Sea of Cortez to tag our 3 newest sharks: Calvin, Hobbes & Selena. For the first time, we opened up 20 seats to the general public. After much media exposure, those 20 spaces were filled with some really terrific people who all shared a sense of adventure and a love of the oceans. Some were scuba divers and some merely had snorkel experience. But that particular trip, because the Whale Sharks are surface dwellers, didn't require any scuba experience. Everyone learned A LOT about sharks, tagging, whale sharks, the oceans and everyone met new friends who all shared the love. Because of the success of that first expedition, we want to open up all of our future Tagging trips to a limited number of people from the general public. Remember: you cannot be 'skittish' in the ocean or around large creatures, you MUST have an innate sense of adventure, and you must have a brilliant sense of humor. (I just threw in that last part because it makes a trip that much more fun!)
So, if this is you, CLICK HERE TO FILL OUT THE FORM and we'll let you know when our next Shark Tagging expedition gets put on the calendar.
"I love outdoor travel and have been fortunate to experience many inspiring “nature moments” in over 50 countries. None exceeded my three days of swimming with whale sharks and only a few matched it. This was truly the immersion adventure—literally and figuratively—of a lifetime. Add to it comfortable facilities, good food, and unsurpassed company (from regular folks like me to a multitude of marine science experts), and it was learning and fun all wrapped up in one. Throw in starry nights, spectacular desert scenery, sunrises over the sublime Sea of Cortez, boat rides in what Jacque Cousteau called the “aquarium of the world,” and the peace and quiet of an isolated, small Mexican village, and you have an idyllic context in which to swim alongside a 25-foot beauty with a 6-foot crescent tail for a 5-minute thrill ride. Don’t miss this!" James M. Hallett
"This trip was a life-changing spiritual experience. Amazing setting and amazing company. It is humbling and magical swimming with these magnificent animals and I got to do it for 3 days straight. Everyone should do this trip and learn to appreciate sharks." Carol de La Sotta
