Returns to original departure point
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!

This was an great experience. Super cool crew ensured we had the best experience ever. Captain Dave, Ariel and Collin were incredible. Plenty of sharks and a couple of barracudas circled our cage for the full 20 minutes of allotted time. Highly recommend.
Once in a lifetime experience with this excursion. We were taken about 3 miles offshore to an anchored enclosure. As soon as our boat approached, the sharks started to swim under and around the boat. The area is a crabbing and fishing spot, so the sharks assume the boat is a fishing boat (easy snacks). We were assisted into the floating enclosure by the knowledgeable staff about 10 at a time. We immediately saw 12-15 sharks swimming around! They were not interested at all in the enclosure; only the scraps they were hoping the assumed fishermen would leave behind. Feeding the sharks for entertainment is illegal, but the lack of actual food did not deter them from checking out the boat and attracting other sharks.
We spent about 20 minutes in the water. We were entertained as the other group took their turn as you can see the sharks in the blue waters from above. We were even treated to a couple whale sightings!
Whole tour lasted about 1 1/2 hours.
Amazing!!!!!! We were with our 8,12,15 grandchildren, they absolutely loved it, saw at least 30 sharks, 5Star!!!!!! Highly recommend !!!!!
Amazing experience. Got jelly fish stings and the organisers were so concerned and were brilliant. That is service!!
For a city girl and not a water lover, I really felt it was a lifetime experience that I’m glad I did. Paulina and Mike were great and funny guides. We did see sharks!! Definitely worth it!! FYI-Don’t eat before the tour!
Captain and crew very nice and fun. Just as we were getting in the cage, the captain called it off due to very rough water. He was very sorry and we were disappointed but we really appreciated him being very cautious with our lives. We had fun anyway and hope to do the dive next time we go.
The crew was fantastic! They assured a safe but incredible experience, thank you !You must put this on your to do list!
Took my 10 year old nephew and we loved it. 8 go out at one time, but you still have plenty of viewing room.
Absolutely brilliant. Very much outside of my comfort zone but I loved every minute of the dive. Staff were wonderful-always felt like we were in safe hands. I really appreciated the concern from them when I was feeling ill. Lovely experience overall. Highly recommend.
Absolute Highlight. Really glad we did it .No issues with booking online thru Viator, even booking from another country. Sea bit rough, but that was part of the fun, staff really good. Glad I took my underwater camera, as unfortunately no professional video, or photo's normally done by the tour company ,was unavailable due to rough sea. I suggest getting changed into swim wear before you go, toilet and changing facilities at harbour very basic. Only slight issue, tour company's shack was closed when we returned in the boat, so all of the clients getting transport back weren't sure when we would be picked up, we didn't need to wait long, enough time to get changed in the cramped room/toilet, and walk to shop at corner for drink.
Amazing experience- very helpful crew who setyled any nerves you had with easy banter. Clear instructions and the 20 minutes seems longer as you are fascinated by the close proximity of the sharks and also barracuda - surprisingly good visibility under the water
Guides were great! Rough seas made it a little harder but still right up close to the sharks. A good time!
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!
I highly recommend this shark dive. The water is nice and warm and very clear. Plenty of Sharks come right up to the cage.
