Shark Diver SAN FRANCISCO (United-states)

Business overview

Cleaning up after his third hurricane in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Shark Divers Patric Douglas decided that there had to be a safer way to make a living. He moved back to the west coast where he was quickly offered a job working for a medical travel company escorting American doctors all over the globe. He spent the next two years as one of the first American tour guides back into Vietnam setting up a safe, unique travel route throughout this remarkable historically rich country. While escorting 21-day tours through China, Bali, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand and Latin America, his easygoing leadership and good humor made for some exciting moments on the road that would not have happened without him. Mountain slides in Peru, saltwater crocodiles blocking the road in Australia and even a Cyclone in New Zealand did not deter this imaginative expedition guide from offering the best available to his adventurous clients. Join him and his crew on the newly refurbished 86-foot Ocean Odyssey for the dive experience of a lifetime and come face to face with multiple Pacific Great White sharks this year. The only thing you have to lose is another amazing vacation! As a typical Aussie our newest Shark Diver staff - Luke Tipple - grew up in and around the ocean. His first contact was at 1 month old when his father threw him into the surf and he came up smiling; there's been no turning back since. Originally from Adelaide, South Australia, Luke has been a keen surfer and an avid spear fisherman from the age of four... In fact his first memory is being given a hand spear, which he still has to this day. His love of the ocean lead him down the obvious road to study Marine Biology and he graduated from James Cook University eager to enter the world of sharks. Luke first started diving in Townsville on the Great Barrier Reef. Diving has since taken him on a journey around the world with assignments as a Dive Officer aboard a Mega-yacht in the Mediterranean, Trip Director aboard "Adrenalin" diving the world famous "S.S. Yongala" Shipwreck, and Technical diving deep shipwrecks and reefs on the coast of Florida and in the Red Sea. As a Marine biologist Luke worked in Utila, Honduras, heading up the Whale Shark Division of the Whale Shark and Oceanic Research Center. Luke is enthusiastic about the ocean and it?s wildlife and loves to talk about all things pelagic. He is a wealth of marine knowledge, great dive stories, and is looking forward to sharing them with you this year!

Packages :-
Isla Guadalupe Great White Shark Fleet :-
Introducing our Guadalupe Island White Shark fleet. We have two distinct boats to service all your shark diving needs. $300 discount per diver for groups of three divers or more on select dates. If you are basing your shark diving decision on price alone, or are looking for an upscale vessel, we have the choices, dates, and crews to make your next shark dive adventure the best you have ever had - call us today to take advantage of the 2005 season.

We have two exciting White Shark packages for you to choose from :-
Laid-back Adventure on the Odyssey :
With tiki flames waving in the cool island breeze, dinner of Caribbean spiced chicken breast with freshly made mango cilantro sauce, complete with coconut rice, and a NY cheese cake dessert, who said shark diving could not be fun?
The Odyssey features all the creature comforts our divers desire for White Shark diving expeditions, and has bunks rooms with privacy bunks in each. Where sleeping accommodations are standard, the rest of the Odyssey is just plain fun. The scene was described by a shark diver from last season ?you guys have created Jimmy Buffet goes shark diving here!? Unlike our upscale boat the MV Islander, the Odyssey is primarily designed to cater to younger dive groups, solo divers, singles, couples, and anyone who values a laid back and fun time with high adventure. She is the favorite boat of our CEO Patric Douglas. The Odyssey remains the most spacious cage diving and sport fishing vessel in her class.

Upscale Adventure on the Islander :-
Upscale Comfort - New White Shark Diving :
Introducing our latest long range boat to the Absolute Adventures-Shark Diver fleet servicing Isla Guadalupe and beyond for 2005-6, the 88 foot MV Islander. For the past year we have been searching San Diego for a unique upscale shark dive boat to offer our valued group clients and corporate clients from Europe, the USA and Japan.

Islander Details :
Featuring 10 very private air conditioned staterooms offering individual thermostats and washbasins, plus every other diving amenity you and your groups will need, the Islander is the perfect long range boat for those seeking comfort and style while diving with Great White Sharks. Unlike our main vessel the MV Ocean Odyssey, the Islander is primarily designed to cater to selected dive groups, corporate groups world wide, professional filmmakers, and larger private parties of divers. If you?re looking for comfort-attention to detail, corporate incentive, and or a unique meeting/strategy space this is the vessel for you. With the acquisition of the Islander into our fleet, the way adventure seekers think of shark diving has just changed again, forever.

Corporate Meetings-Step Outside :
Strategy planning, executive team meetings, sales offsites, incentives, and team building are just a few of the uses for our newest vessel to the Shark Diver fleet. Our shark crews can assist you with all your corporate function needs. We can produce team shirts and hats with your brand on it, film and produce corporate sales videos and make your next corporate function one that will go down in your company?s history. In a world where everyone does the same thing, and companies look to Las Vegas as ?a fun meeting place? let Absolute Adventures-Shark Diver provide you with the ultimate tool to set you apart from the competition. Dive experience is not necessary, as always we?ll work with your group to make this occasion one to remember. Why do the ordinary this year when the extraordinary is waiting for you in San Diego?

Food Service :-
Meals aboard the Islander are key to any successful dive expedition. Group leaders will be happy to note that we take great pride in taking care of all your divers food needs. The galley is fully equipped for any style of cooking providing divers with a wide range of cuisine. From traditional meals to the freshest fish in the world (caught daily), or meals that cater to religious observance, the Islander cuts no corners in efforts to present a truly memorable dining experience. Dietary restrictions are not a problem and our on board chef looks forward to accommodating your needs. The Islanders galley/salon area is spacious with ample room for 16+ passengers at one seating. Complete with TV and VCR/DVD, and internet access, the salon is an excellent place to wind down after a day of incredible shark diving or while en route to Isla Guadalupe. All beverages-including beer and wine-are available at no extra cost. We are proud to feature ?Great White Wines? at www.Greatwhitewines.Com with your meals. This local eco minded company gives back 10% of its total sales to ongoing shark research world wide, and they have a fantastic wine.

Cage Diving Design :-
Absolute Adventures-Shark Diver oversaw the complete fabrication and updated design of the Islanders shark cage system, mirroring them against our huge 100 square foot successful Guadalupe Two design that we currently deploy aboard the Ocean Odyssey. They feature external flotation pods allowing for more space and comfort inside the cages. Plus two unique external observation hatches for film crews who are looking for another angle to film Great White Sharks. In short, one of Absolute Adventures-Shark Divers most important considerations is cage design, and safety. We have produced the best cages available to dive with; after all it?s where you and your group will be spending most of your time with us.

Professional Photography :-
The Islander is looking forward to assisting you, the professional or semi-professional, with all your underwater photographic needs. As a prime example of stunning underwater shark shots taken from Isla Guadalupe please spend some time with renound underwater photographer Phil Colla located at www.Oceanlight.Com

Long Range Fishing :-
Like the Ocean Odyssey, the Islander offers amazing big game fishing with gear supplied to you on board. The crew is ready to assist you land one of the monster Tuna and Yellowtail that inhabit the waters around Isla Guadalupe. Cage diving is fun; nailing an 80 pound Yellowfin is as exciting as skydiving. Last season the world record Yellowtail (96 pounds) was caught at our site in the middle of our shark season. The Islander crew can also freeze your catch so you can take it home with you at the end of your expedition with us at no extra charge.

Islander Technical Specs :-
At 88 x 24 feet the Islander is also powered by two reliable Caterpillar 3406 Diesel engines that are routinely maintained for maximum performance. Her size cuts down on rougher crossings to and from Isla Guadalupe and provides superior diving comfort while on site. Twin 55KW Isuzu generators provide ample power at all times. The boat has a fresh water tank which is supplemented as needed by a reverse osmosis water maker capable of generating 400 gallons of water daily. This surplus of fresh water provides all our divers with ample hot water in either of the two main showers aboard or through our hot water deck shower, the perfect way to warm up after a long dive with Great Whites. The Islander has been refitted with a ?built in? low pressure air system for our divers; it is one of three boats in the entire fleet to have this system in place. Like the Odyssey, built in air systems provide our divers with the dedicated air systems and safety aspects we demand from our shark boats.
