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 was our first activity on our honeymoon, and we had such a wonderful time! My husband loves sharks and honestly had no expectations to see any, but boy was he wrong. We saw a ton of sharks and were able to get great Go Pro footage of them. Would highly recommend this activity!!!

I had good directions so it was easy to locate the harbor. The men running the boat shared a lot of information and made the experience fun at the same time. I would have liked to see larger sharks but that was not there fault. They maneuvered the boat well in rough conditions and made us feel safe. I met a wonderful family and shared the cage adventure with them.

The boat crew was extremely nice and looking out for safety. Said they been in business for over 20 years and never had a shark attack issue. The cage was exciting and say plenty of sharks during the time I was in there. If you're a shark lover, this trip is for you!

The captain and crew member were excellent. We got to see some sharks over 12ft long it was awesome. Only detractor is that the ocean is very rough and we had a hard time staying positioned in the cage. Not crews fault. Make sure to take motion sickness meds before you go.

This was such a great experience for me and my husband on our honeymoon! We live in Idaho so we don't get to see Sharks every day lol Everyone on the boat were so fun and helpful I enjoyed literally every minutes of this trip! We were not in the shark cage for to long maybe 20 minutes but honestly, that was just enough to get pictures and the full experience! I would do it again in a heart beat!
