Shark Adventure with Diving Cage (Shark Adventure)

Description

Sharks are the ocean's perfect predator, existing for more than 350 million years, even before the dinosaurs. The sharks you will see on this boat tour include the gray reef, the Galapagos, the sandbar and the hammerhead. With a maximum of six people allowed, this tour offers you a more intimate experience.

Begin your Hawaiian shark adventure with a safety briefing and an approximate three-mile, 15-minute boat ride from Haleiwa Small Boat Harbor. Look for dolphins, Hawaiian green sea turtles and magnificent humpback whales (November through May) on the way.

When the water turns a deep cobalt blue and reaches depths of 200 to 400 feet (60 to 120 meters), the shark cage, which always floats on the water’s surface, is lowered, and in only a moment's time you will see sharks rise from the deep! The partially submerged steel cage is two meters  deep and is open at the top, surrounded by a fence. Essentially, you stand in water that is about as deep as you are tall.

The cage is permanently attached to the platform of the boat and is under our direct supervision. You’ll have up to two hours  to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime exerience, and you can get out of the cage whenever you feel like it. Prepare for heart-racing thrills; these sharks will often be inches away from the cage and you! The visibility is so good that you can actually see the sharks come up from the deep.

Bring an underwater camera for the most incredible photographs you may ever take. We cannot guarantee the availability of cameras onsite, so please bring your own. We will provide snorkels and masks, but you are welcome to bring your own, as well.

When the two hours are up, we'll make the approximate 15-minute boat ride back to shore. You will spend the rest of your vacation wondering if you really swam with sharks! Hopefully the experience also leaves you free from any fears or inhibitions you had about sharks or swimming in the ocean. You will have a newfound respect for sharks and their beauty.

The Boat and Crew: The crew’s first priority is your safety. Crew members possess lifelong ties to the sea, and they are there to keep you safe and teach you about the sharks’ behaviors and instincts. Our crew's goal is to lead you to a better understanding of sharks and offer you an unforgettable experience in a very safe environment.

This tour has no age restrictions, but we ask that all participants be comfortable in the water.

Scared of actually getting into the water with sharks? Book our surface viewing option where you can see all the action from the boat!
