Size Matters in San Francisco
You Provide the
Numbers and We'll Provide the Wetsuit
If you want to cage dive among
the world's biggest white sharks, you'll need to bundle up in the warmest wetsuit available. The waters near San Francisco's Farallon Islands are
icy cold during peak shark viewing months of October and November, just the way the sharks like it. Even wearing one of the heaviest wetsuits
made, you'll likely be ready to hit the deck for a cup of hot something after 20 or 30 minutes. (Don't worry. After you warm up, you can dive back in.)
Lucky for you, our $825 cage
diving price includes the rental of one of our 7mm wetsuits. All you need to do is provide us with your correct height, weight and shoe size
and we'll have a wetsuit in the proper size, plus hood and dive boots, waiting for you when you arrive at the dock. (If you shave 10 pounds off
your weight, it might take three crew members to squeeze you into the wetsuit we've pulled from our storage unit.) We carry suits from size XS to
XXXXL and in short, medium and tall sizing, so we can accommodate just
Incredible Adventures takes
a maximum of 12 cage divers on each trip. Divers rotate in and out of the cage at 20 to 30 minute intervals to insure no one gets too cold and
everyone gets plenty of cage time. During their time on deck, cage divers can warm up with provided hot coffee, tea and soup and fuel up on a variety
of snacks and breakfast and lunch items.
Shark diving season in San Francisco is October 3 til November 14.
Trips depart from San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf. The cost to join a
trip, but not cage dive, is $475.
Incredible Adventures is excited to have the 65 ft Derek M
Baylis as its shark boat this season. The offshore research and education sailing vessel is also used by the Sanctuary's long time shark
researchers. For more information, email or call

Tour Like a VIP, Train Like a Cosmonaut
Go Behind the Gates of the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training
Spend an incredible day at Star City, home
of the Russian Space Agency's cosmonaut training program. Our newest "Cosmonaut for a Day" adventure includes a private,
hands-on tour of some of the actual training simulators used to prepare cosmonauts and visiting astronauts for a trip off the planet. The cost
is just $3500 and includes transfers from central Moscow, translator services, vestibular training and Sokol space suit training.
Sokol is the suit
worn inside the capsule. Orlan space suit training can be arranged for an additional cost. To remember which suit is worn where, it may help to
remember Orlan starts with "o" and so does "outside".
Cosmonaut for a Day adventures are available all year long, but must
be scheduled at least 35 days in advance of your desired training date. Incredible Adventures can arrange hotel accommodations, tours and
additional services, upon request.

Share Your Memories
Celebrate Our 22nd Year Making Dreams Come True By Sharing Memories of Your Incredible Adventure
In October of 1993, Incredible Adventures, then known
as MIGS etc, sent its very first customer to fly a MiG over
Russia. Our high-flying jet at that time was the MiG-25 Foxbat. When word got out that we were helping the airbase raise money for its
flight programs by selling MiG rides to tourists, we were approached by representatives of the Russian Space Agency and asked to find clients for
their space training programs. We arranged our very first zero-gravity flight aboard the Russian Space Agency's IL-76 MDK aircraft in February of 1994. Next came Russian tank driving and small arms shooting. Then, an Italian sales agent drafted us to help find customers for desert adventures Tunisia. By the end of 1995, we were offering so many incredible adventures, the
"etc." in our original name couldn't hold them all, so on January 1, 1996, we officially became Incredible Adventures.
There's a page on the Incredible Adventures website devoted to the company's
early years. We've posted old photos and news articles and a link to a fun TV piece that aired on "NBC Nightly News with Tom
It's been an incredible ride! We could fill an entire
book with our stories of adventures and adventurers, but we don't know YOUR story. If you've completed one of our incredible adventures in the last 22 years, we'd love for you to share your memories with us.
Real Photos That Don't Look Real
Guadalupe is the Best Place to Go for
Great White Shark Photos
The above, completely unedited photo, was sent to us by a recent shark diver. She and her husband saw more than 20
white sharks during their five-day trip aboard the Nautilus Explorer. They had such an incredible adventure, they are planning to return with
friends, to dive again.
Our sighting success rate at Isla Guadalupe is currently 100%, thanks to clear blue water, extended dive time and the ability to use scent
attractants. This makes Guadalupe the best place to go to see and photograph white sharks.
We are now taking reservations for 2016 and 2017 expeditions aboard the MV Solmar, Nautilus Explorer and Nautilus Belle Amie. Pricing
starts at $3145 per person.
Here's a bit of shark trivia to chomp on: The white sharks at Isla Guadalupe are not as big as the white sharks at San Francisco's Farallon Islands.
