Great White Shark Trips Draw Daredevil SCUBA Divers to Mexico's Isla de Guadalupe

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 11, 2006 -- The Northern California Underwater Photographic Society (www.NCUPS.org), proudly presents a very special seminar, "Diving with the Great White Sharks of Isla de Guadalupe," a 60-minute presentation about cage diving with the Great White Sharks of Isla de Guadalupe, 160-miles off the Pacific coast of Baja, Mexico. For the discriminating underwater photographer, the Great White Shark diving at Guadalupe is bar none the greatest on the planet, with one of the most prolific populations of White Sharks on Earth, up to 100 feet+ of visibility and a water temperature ranging from 67 to 70 F degrees.

Shark Naturalist and Dive Master Scott Davis of ecotourism company Great White Adventures (www.GreatWhiteAdventures.com), will show a stunning up-close-and-personal presentation of the most magnificent, mysterious, maligned, and misunderstood shark in the world. Scott is a highly experienced wildlife researcher, National Geographic Society grantee, NAUI Master Diver, and PADI Dive Master. Scott considers the shark diving of Isla de Guadalupe the best in the world, and his current graduate research work involves the behavior and movement patterns of White Sharks off the North American coast.

The "Diving with the Great White Sharks of Isla de Guadalupe," seminar will take place on Friday, April 14, 2006, at 7:30 p.m. Location: New Vision United Methodist Church, 450 Chadbourne Avenue, Millbrae, CA 94030 -- located only ten minutes south of the San Francisco International Airport. Cost for first-time visitors is FREE.
