Cruise from Oahu's beautiful North Shore to your viewing spot, where you'll observe the ocean's top predators up close from a secure underwater shark cage.

Know More about this tour

Departing from Haleiwa Small Boat Harbor on Oahu's beautiful North Shore, relax on a 3-mile (5-km) cruise to your shark-filled destination. Along the way, you may see Hawaiian green sea turtles, dolphins and, depending on the season, even humpback whales!

Your safety is the upmost priority, so your expert crew will give you a safety orientation and a briefing on what to expect during your shark viewing. When you arrive at the viewing spot, strap on your provided masks and snorkels and step inside the secure shark cage. You'll then be lowered into the cobalt-blue water for a 20 minute shark-viewing adventure.

With a visibility of up to 200 feet (60 meters), you'll feel your adrenaline pump as you watch the ocean's top predators approaching you from the depths below. The sharks will swim just inches away from you, so bring an underwater camera to document this thrilling experience! Don't worry -- you're safe within the confines of the metal cage, letting you view the sharks with ease.

The sharks commonly sighted in this area are gray reef sharks, Galapagos sharks, sandbar sharks and hammerhead sharks, ranging in size from 5 to 15 feet (1.5 to 4.5 meters). The cage holds two people comfortably and can hold up to eight people at a time, depending on the weather conditions.

If you do not wish to enter the shark cage, simply continue relaxing on board -- there are ample surface-viewing opportunities as the sharks circle the boat.

Shark sightings guaranteed or your money back!

  • My husband loved this! Everything exactly as described - I like that they do not chum the water - instead going to a place where the sharks recognize the sounds of the Diesel engines. Great tour!

  • Beautiful morning boat ride on Oahu's North Shore. The crew was very friendly and answered all of our shark questions. I was only an observer and stayed on the boat but my 2 kids went in the cage to view the sharks closer. They are fascinated with sharks. It was my daughter's birthday and the perfect way to start her special day. We all loved it!

  • We had a calm day at sea with 8-9 sharks. The largest was 10 to 12 feet. Bigger than expected. Always felt safe. Staff was nice.

  • Awesome experience highly recommend it.

  • I highly recommend this shark dive. The water is nice and warm and very clear. Plenty of Sharks come right up to the cage.

  • Awesome...I swam with sharks!!!

  • It was a great day. The crew was very informative of the various sharks we would be seeing. They gave very thorough safety instructions on the way to the cage dive site. Immediately upon arrival several sharks were present. We had 6 people in the cage on each viewing. The longer we were in the water more sharks. They averaged 4 - 10 feet in length. They weren't shy or afraid of the cage or us. They would come right up the cage bars and stare at us. We were in the water for about 30 minutes. The amount of time was just right for an old man of 72 years. Getting in and out of the cage was very easy and again the crew was very helpful. Cage diving with the sharks was on my Bucket List put it on yours. It's well worth the time and money and gets you away from the hustle and crowds of Waikiki. I would do this tour again and so would my wife.

  • My wife and I watched my Grandchildren as they enjoyed this experience. Their eyes lit-up when they came out of the cage. That was all we needed to know about their experience. Money well spent and memories that will last forever. Great Time !!

  • Very excited for my grandson and brother to be taking this trip. Positives very friendly staff comfortable boat beautiful scenery. Negatives water very choppy but most of of too many people put in cage not enough room to move around. Plenty of sharks and big ones too. But difficult to dive to bottom of cage per grandson due to crowded conditions in cage and closeness of cage to boat which caused it to continue to bang against side of boat. Supposedly it was to be released away from boat attached by ropes to prevent this. Not much time in water either about 20 - 30 minutes per group 6-8 people in each. Though plenty of sharks just not enough room to maneuver.

  • Really cool and glad that we did it. Fortunately I had some foresight and took a little motion-sickness medication before hand, though, because you really get out there on the water--and being in a giant submerged cage for about 30 tumultuous minutes definitely doesn't help with that. The guides were very friendly, funny, and helpful, and you can buy a go-pro video of yourself in the cage afterwards if you like.
