Celebrate Shark Week early with a SHARK WEEKEND diving with them! Join us and get your shark "fix" in July! We'll be heading to Mexico to swim with whale sharks for a long weekend!
During the months of summer, on their long migration, the whale shark arrives to the Isla Mujeres waters feast on plankton. Gathering in groups as large as 100 members, you have an incredible opportunity to swim with the sharks so elusive, Jack Cousteau only saw two in his lifetime! Reports in from this year are great – over 30 whale sharks a day plus the opportunity to see dolphins and manta rays! In fact, this year is unique as GIANT MANTA RAYS HAVE BEEN SIGHTED ALMOST EVERY DIVE!!!
Last week, as part of our education program, the Shark Angels visited an inner-city school in Watts, California to speak with an excited first grade class about saving sharks and protecting the seas– children who would not normally be touched by the oceans. We were greeted by 25 very excited youngsters, full of interesting questions and ideas of how they could help! As part of our program, they had been using our activity books and discussing sharks in the classroom for a week before our visit and had such thoughtful questions prepared for us like: "What do sharks smell like?" "How do sharks get made?" and "Do sharks eat people?"

Shark fins are tasteless, and may contain high levels of toxic methyl-mercury.
Only a small number of countries have banned finning - many more need to be encouraged to enact legislation.
Many people assume that because they don’t eat shark fin soup – then they can’t possibly be contributing to the demise of the sharks and rays.
