Thanks to your professional, experienced crew, the Oahu shark dive is completely safe as they know the predators’ behavior, and the underwater cage provides proven safety against all different species of sharks.

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.

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!

The female captain (forgot her name) was great. She is very knowledgeable and patiently answer a lot of our questions. The water was clear, so we were able to observe the sharks very clearly in the cage. Great time with a great team!

Seeing large sharks surrounding the cage and climbing into the cage. We also had a barracuda in the water near the cage. The Captain and crew were great.

At one point, I counted 10 sharks near us at once. There were even more than that, the first several minutes in the cage. The crew was all really cool - Matty was very understanding of the two ladies on the boat, who suffered from being sea-sick, and helped them to the back of the boat, where there was less motion. The crew was very understanding of your swimming/boating experience, the view was beautiful, and boat was a good size for riding out on. Would definitely book with them again.
