Guadalupe Island has long had a reputation for huge white sharks. For years, fishermen have claimed to have had white sharks steal their yellowfin tuna just as the tuna is reeled in to the boat. On past diving trips we have talked with the local Mexican fishermen, who work the island year round; one told us that in the winter, when elephant seals crowd the bolder beaches at the north end of the island, you can walk across water on the backs of the sharks. The only people who meet Guadalupe Island's white sharks -- in open water -- are those who choose to dive Guadalupe Island for pleasure or out of necessity. Mexican hookah divers work the island for lobsters and abalone, and have reported to us that they commonly see white sharks. White sharks have visited divers on some of our past spearfishing and scuba diving trips at the island, making what appear to be inquisitive passes. Tragically, two freediving spearfishermen have been attacked during the 80's while hunting for tuna at Guadalupe Island, one fatally.
