The following, are services we provide for your film or production company.
We always recommend the Guadalupe Islands for the best Great White Shark footage. The water is clear and blue with at least 100ft of visibility. If, you have another destination for filming... we can help you there too.
We have our own vessel during the months of Aug thru Oct for Guadalupe filmmaking expeditions. If you need to be there outside those months, we have a fleet of vessels which are operational, subject to availability.
Our lastest invention, SPSC (Shark Propelled Shark Cage) is the perfect underwater vehicle for filming. We can get you within stroking distance of any Great White Shark, as we gently glide alongside these awesome creatures.
Our DIVE Crew are some of the best in the world of oceanography. Lawrence Groth and James Moskito are Master Divers. Erick Higuera is our Marine Biologist and Master Diver. Andy Casagrande IV is a world renowned underwater filmmaker for National Geographic and a Master Diver.
