North Shore Shark Adventure

Come face-to-face with sharks 3 miles (4.8 km) off the shore of Oahu. With a snorkel and mask, dive into the Pacific Ocean to view these incredible creatures of the deep in their natural environment from the comfort and safety of a custom-built cage.

After a safety briefing, depart from the Haleiwa Boat Harbor and head out to sea. Take in the North Shore vistas on this gentle ride in a custom-made boat with covered, cushioned seating. Once at the shark viewing area, the cage is placed in the water. It floats at the surface, and when you enter the water you can choose to float or dive a few feet down while still in the safety of the cage.

With visibility that can reach 150 feet (45 m) or more, you can see the sharks come up from the cobalt-blue depths of the ocean. Watch as sharks ranging from 5–15 feet (1.5–4.5 m) in length circle only inches away from the cage. Viewing the sharks in their natural environment is a true wonder. Expect to see Galapagos sharks, sandbar sharks, all with unique traits that your guide shares through informative narration. Other marine life can possibly be seen such as: Spinner Dolphins, Barracuda, Mackerel, Tuna, Flying Fish and Humpback Whales (January-March).
