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.

There's no way I could wrap my experience in one most memorable part. From check in to drop off was beyond exceptional. The staff was great. Very friendly, welcoming and friendly as well as clear in communication and instruction. I will definitely do this again and recommend every one to try at least once. Thank you!

This was probably the highlight of our trip to Hawaii! We went on the 8am tour on Feb 23rd and it was so great! I’ve never been that close to sharks before! Captain Mike was nice and so great. The other crew member on the boat was so great and made sure we knew exactly what we were doing. And I’m so sorry I can’t remember his name! If someone can let him know how great he was, I want him to get the credit he deserves too! My friend and I did get a little sea sick on the way back, but it was totally worth it! This is definitely a must!

We had an amazing trip. We had a once in a lifetime trip. The sharks were amazing, it is quite awesome to look the shark in the eyes. We also saw 4 different sets of whales within 20 feet of the boat. We also had a pod of dolphins swim by.

I had an amazing time on this dive! The staff were super nice and made me feel comfortable when I was not feeling well. As soon as I hopped in the cage, all worries and pains went out the door! We seen over 15+ sharks easily in the little amount of time you are there. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking to get in the water with the big boys!
