When Phil Wiseman called us in 2009 to book a white shark expedition for 2010 he sounded excited. This was going to be a family affair with two of his clan joining him.
Unfortunately "life got in the way" for Phil and his family and they could not join us in 2010, so it was this year that we got to meet the Wisemans...and what a nice family!
Here's Nancy's take on her recent adventures with White Sharks at Guadalupe island.
Thanks guys, we'll have you back anytime, your new friends the sharks are waiting:
Dear Patrick and crew of the Horizon, I just completed a tour with you and would like to share my experience.
I am 68 years old and grateful that my son Phil found your tour and asked me if I wanted to come along. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever expect to be within a few feet of a magnificent Great White Shark. I will marvel that event forever.
I had a bit of a problem the first night trying to gain my sea legs but once my body and my brains stopped arguing with each other I was good to go.
The entire staff of the Horizon were just great. They couldn't do enough for me and I indeed felt special. Every meal was fabulous, it was great to wake up every morning to the smell of coffee and bacon frying in the pan. Martin (diver operations) was ever so patient when he worked to help me breath with the regulator. It was fun to hear all the knowledge he had about the sharks of Isla Guadalupe.
Thank you all for a great experience.
