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.

Although we were scared at first once you get over the initial fear and are in the water it was AMAZING!!! Wish we had more time in the water though and might want to take something for sea sick. I’m used to boats but water was very choppy and we were barely holding back from getting sick! Crew was friendly and courteous. It’s a must do!!! I never thought i would do it and i did and my 11yr old n 20 ur old daughters were apprehensive but loved it!!!

Very exciting, once in the cage and seeing the sharks closeup, outside of the choppy conditions and sea sick feeling.

Actually seeing the sharks up close. It was early November, but it would have also been nice to see some whales on the trip.... The hosts however we really nice!
icon Response from Host , Nov 2020
Aloha Nari. We would love to start seeing whales too, but have to wait till more have arrived...usually by late December. We do recommend seasickness precautions since the tour occurs in open ocean. Best to take the medicine the night before and also about an hour before your tour...just advise for other review readers. Thanks for your review. Aloha Joe Pavsek.

Everyone that visits North Shore O'hau MUST do this shark cage dive. The skipper and deckhand are fabulous - friendly, fun, experienced and professional and being in a cage as these magnificent creatures cruise around you is just breathtaking. The most calming, fantastic experience. We had about 15 12-ft Galapagos sharks swimming around and we saw humpbacks and dolphins on the boat trip to the dive spot too. You have to do this - one of the highlights of not only my holiday but of my life! AND such good value for money.
