Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your Oahu shark dive begins at Haleiwa boat harbor on the island’s famous North Shore, where you motor out to the open ocean offshore. While cruising out to the shark diving area, there’s a chance you could see dolphins, sea turtles, surfers or even humpback whales in winter, and the view looking back at Oahu’s shoreline is worth the trip in itself.

Since safety is one of the top priorities for the Oahu shark diving crew, receive a briefing on safe practices and how to act in the cage. Then, when it’s time to finally go looking for sharks, strap on your masks, step in the cage, and your shark watching adventure begins when you’re lowered in the water.

Out here in the open ocean away from the runoff and waves, visibility can often extend to as much as 200 feet (60m). When you first catch sight of a graceful shark swimming slowly but purposefully towards you, there’s a sudden and potent rush of adrenaline you simply can’t contain. Before you can even be scared, however, the sharks have swum to within inches of the cage and are circling in front of your face.

In the waters around Oahu, the most commonly sighted sharks you might find are Galapagos, Hammerhead, and Sandbar sharks, which range from 5-15 feet (1.5-4.5m) dependent upon their age. For travelers wanting to dive as a group, the cage can comfortably hold two adult divers and up to eight at a time—though it depends on current weather conditions and the amount of movement in the water.

And, if you simply don’t want to dive in the cage but are hoping to see some sharks, there’s still plenty of thrilling action you can experience while viewing from the deck of the boat.

This tour far exceeded our expectations. The sharks swim right up to the cage and they stuck around the whole time we were in the water. At the same time, we felt very safe the whole time. Definitely worth doing!
Highly recommend!

Like other reviews have said, if you are debating this trip, you should do it. The crew was awesome, very funny and informative. The sharks got pretty close to the cage so you were able to see them really well. Since you are in a cage you don’t necessarily need to be a really strong swimmer, but you should definitely be comfortable being in the water. Also highly recommend taking/bringing motion sickness pills.

It was amazing our guides were helpful and fun. The boat ride is not for the faint hearted, the waves were pretty intense that day, so that might be the issue. The experience was worth the ride though. There were at least 10 sharks and it was amazing!
