War cool Haie einmal so nahe zu sehen. Die Fahrzeit ist halt etwas lange, um dann ein paar Minuten in diesem Käfig zu sein um die Tiere zu beobachten.

It was very, very cool to be in the cage with the sharks whizzing by. We saw at least 40-50 of them. Unfortunately, it was a crazy rocky day on the ocean. Even though i got seasick, i wasn't sorry i did it. I definitely recommend motion sickness pills before you go and a good underwater camera.

Lots of fun and a reasonable value, but go early to avoid possibly rough seas. When water is rough, being in cage can be challenging. Take your dramamine if you have any tendency to get motion sickness.

Water was rough, and we got bounced around a lot. The water was very blue and we saw quite a few sharks and they came to the surface. The disposible camera worked but not the best. It was worth the trip.

Fantastic experience, up close and personal with some pretty big sharks, recommend taking sea sickness pills beforehand.

Overall the experience was amazing and we have already recommended it to friends. The only reason I wouldn't give it a full five stars is because the lady who originally signed me up for the 11am told me they rarely cancel and that all times are good to see the sharks. However, once we were on Oahu (a special trip just to see the sharks from Kauai) we were told our trip may be cancelled. Luckily the waters calmed down and we were able to get on an earlier morning dive. The guide on the boat said they had cancelled many trips that week and that the best time is always the earliest possible dive. I wish I had that piece of advice when I originally called. So there, now you know and I hope you have a spectacular dive like we did. One more thing, the directions on parking and where to meet are vague at best.

Loved this experience! it was postponed for a couple of days due to rough seas but when we did go everyhting went perfectly. I wish they would have fed the sharks but just seeing them close up was spectacular! Highly recommend this trip and get the video, it was well worth the proof that you actually got into the water with sharks and the bonus shark video is awesome! the captain and the deck hands were great and friendly. this is a must do!

The experience was amazing. Just remember to work out your transport to North Shore before hand as its 1.5 hours away from Waikiki

The Oahu Shark Dive was awesome! I had no idea what to expect, so I stayed open-minded and predicted what it was going to be like. I was completely wrong! I NEVER would have believed that there would have been so many sharks to see! From small to large,don't get me wrong sorry no JAWS( large),but large enough to eat me! Your given a perfect amount of time to be in the water see them all take pictures and be in awe. I didn't give the fifth star probably because of insurance reasons, my crazy a_s would have loved to feed them and see them tear up some food! Thats it,though.... NO complaints from Chicago traveler Matt.. If your looking for a shark tour take this one!!! Well worth every penny and you will be satisfied...

The crew was fun and professional. Over all, the entire shark dive was amazing and extremely safe. However this is highly not recommended for people who are prone to motion sickness, the waters are extremely choppy. Threw up quite abit.

This was a great experience and it was completely safe (this coming from a non swimmer). Staff were refreshing and fun!

This was fun.... sharks were only galapogos, but there were about 5-6 and up to about 8ft. It's pretty hard to hold onto your camera and the cage at the same time as the swell tends to bash you around a bit.
