At NetZero Expeditions, we are dedicated to providing ethical and sustainable shark diving experiences off the coast of San Diego. Our approach is carefully tailored to minimize our environmental impact while facilitating meaningful encounters with the ocean's apex predators, specifically blue and mako sharks.


Commitment to Natural Shark Behaviors and Ecosystem Health


We are committed to maintaining the natural behaviors of sharks and the overall health of the marine ecosystem. Our operational practices include specific measures to ensure minimal interference with the natural life cycles and behaviors of marine wildlife.


Sustainable Practices and Local Ecosystem Support

NetZero Expeditions employs a range of sustainable practices that support the health of local marine ecosystems:


  • Limiting Tour Frequency: We limit the number of our diving trips to reduce environmental stress and ensure each encounter is conducted under the most sustainable conditions possible.

  • No Direct Feeding: To avoid altering shark behavior, we do not feed sharks directly. This helps prevent sharks from associating humans with food, which is crucial for their natural hunting instincts and for diver safety.

Economic and Conservation Benefits of Responsible Shark Tourism

Shark tourism, when done responsibly, offers significant economic benefits to the local community by drawing eco-conscious tourists. This sustainable approach promotes long-term conservation efforts and helps ensure that sharks remain a vibrant part of the ecosystem. By providing economic incentives to protect these creatures, we help shift local and tourist perceptions towards conservation and sustainable interaction with marine life.


Educational and conservation Impact of Our Tours

Education is a cornerstone of our tours. We equip our guests with knowledge about the ecological roles of sharks, the current threats they face, and the importance of their conservation. This educational approach aims to transform tourists into informed advocates for marine conservation, promoting a shift in how sharks are perceived and treated worldwide.


NetZero Expeditions is committed to shark conservation and actively supports organizations dedicated to protecting these vital marine predators. We are proud to collaborate with Shark Allies, a leading conservation group focused on the preservation and protection of sharks. By choosing NetZero Expeditions, our guests not only experience the thrill of shark diving but also contribute to the ongoing efforts to ensure a sustainable future for these magnificent creatures.
