What You Can Expect

Oahu Shark Dive

This shark adventure cruise could change your outlook on sharks!

Your Oahu shark dive begins at Haleiwa boat harbor on the island’s famous North Shore, where you’ll motor out nearly 3 miles (5km) to the open ocean offshore. While cruising out to the shark diving area, there’s the 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, you’ll 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 20 minute 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 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.

Money back guarantee you’ll see sharks!

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
Fully recommended

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!
