While the rest of the world goes about it's daily business, the west coast shark world is gearing up for another season at Isla Guadalupe.
Divers from all over the planet got our final Shark Kits and phone calls this week while our shark cages were pulled from storage and polished.
It's an exciting time. Going into our 7th year at this site we have come to know many of the seasonal animals that appear "like clockwork" at this pristine and unique island.
Shredder, Fat Tony, Bruce, The Russian, Naf Naf.
For me it's a reminder of the oceans mysteries. These are magnificent animals on an epic migration to as far away as Hawaii, moving through an ocean of hooks and mans influence, to reappear once again, a bit heavier, a bit longer, and always visually stunning at Guadalupe's Point Norte - Shark Fin Rock.
2009 is another season at Isla Guadalupe and we're looking forward to it, to old friends, to another season of mysteries.
Of all the adventures on the planet, for me - this is the Grandaddy of them all.
