We did this with ISLAND VIEW and first of all, the way they made us feel extremely comfortable before we got in with the sharks was extraordinary! They are fun, energetic and the pictures they get of you under water are cool. FOR FREE! If you have iPhone you get the picture right away through airdrop so the quality remains the same. I would love to come back and do this again. Second, being able to swim close to sharks was something I will never forget. They are incredibly majestic creatures who are just swimming around you in a very calm way. Loved everything about this!

Amazing experience

Amazing experience, one in a lifetime. There were 2 big sharks and 1 barracuda. I still didn't get video because have an android, but hopefully will get it soon by email.
Checked off a bucket list item

Bucket list experience!! I would do it again in a heartbeat. The boat crew was amazing. The meeting spot was alittle confusing, especially since the other participants were on island time and no one else had arrived. I called the contact number and they reassured us we were in the correct location. If you would include across from 2 story restroom building in addition to the dock with the tires that would be very helpful. Mahalo
Very fun and unique experience

It was a super fun tour. There was not many sharks that day unfortunately but that’s out of everyone’s control. The crew was super chill and friendly. Took a lot of good pictures as well. Will definitely book again if we have a chance to visit Hawaii again
Must do.

The best part of this trip was seeing the sharks in their natural environment. The crew was great and made it very memorable. Thank you!
I loved it

It was an amazing experience. As a first time snorkel user, the instructor was with me and guided me the whole time. I panicked at first but he got it under control and I was able to see the sharks around me and even be left alone to swim.

Don’t be afraid

The sharks swam very closely. So close one of them brushed my wife. The staff was fantastic and very knowledgeable about the surroundings. They looked young but knowledge triumphs over age.

Amazing experience. If you visit Hawaii this is something you have to do cage free. The staff is awesome. I was very scared before going but they made me feel very confortable. Book this company for sure 🙌 I highly recommend it
Definitely worth it.
