What can I say? I faced my fear face to face, sharks!
The boat ride was beautiful and we saw dolphins on our way to the cage in the middle of the ocean. The time in the cage felt like 5 minutes. The sharks were curious about us.
The captain and his shipmates made trip very interesting by luring sharks towards our boat with an empty coffee mug. Thank you guys for the opportunity to hang out with you all!
Take Dramamine 1 hour before the boat ride even if you think you won't get sea sick. Better to be safe than sorry!
The tour was great. Sea was a bit rough and we all felt sick. Sharks galour during the dive. My 5 year old hated it but we all loved it
Great communication from the group. They had to cancel because of bad weather but rescheduled quickly to accommodate our trip dates. Very nice staff. Informative, friendly and made us feel very comfortable. My nephew decided not to go in the cage and they encouraged him without being pushy. We had an awesome time and saw 9 sharks! Great experience! My brother in law also misplaced a Tshirt on the boat and Joe provided him with a free souvenir shirt to wear home and texted us when they found the original shirt.
The instructors were very helpful and made the experience worth every penny!! The choppy waves were not their fault . Lol .. We loved every minute of this experience ! Thank you!
I recently went on the Cage Diving with Sharks tour with NORTH SHORE SHARKS ADVENTURES with my teenage daughter and her friend and WE LOVED IT!!! I was a bit reluctant about this tour because I did not know what to expect but everything went well..from the pick up to the boat ride out to open sea to entering the cage. The whole crew was very nice, funny and helpful. They guided my girls through the whole process and it was an experience of a lifetime!!! We were able to see many sharks from the boat and the girls were able to see them up close and personal from the cage. Thanks North Shore Shark Adventures for a great tour!!! My only tip is to take nausea pills 30 minutes before you get on the boat to avoid getting sea sick. A few who did not take the pills did.
The tour was great! The capt and crew were awesome! So friendly and helpful. There were LOTS of sharks to see - no disappointment there! Unfortunately, I did get really sea sick - which never happens. The swells are large and never ending. I can handle some gentle waves and rocking motion - but this was way beyond that - so prepare yourself! The crew was very sweet and helpful to those of us who were sick I wasn't the only one. I highly recommend this tour! Thank you North Shore Shark Adventures!

TAKE SEASICK TABLETS
It is on the documentation you are sent, and don't ignore this - it will make this once in a lifetime experience so much better. Even if you are never sick, this is the Pacific and you are sat there for over an hour in those Hawaiian waves which make this a surfers paradise. Around 50 of the boat will be ill, so don't let this ruin your day.
That being said this is one amazing experience. The sharks are there naturally, so can always been seen and are bigger than you think. Because the sharks are there naturally and not lured, the whole experience is just incredible. They swim around you constantly.
This is a once in a lifetime experience and worth doing. I would not recommend taking along family members not doing this though, the motion on the boat and sick people won't make this a great experience for them.
My wife and I spent a week in Hawaii and this was the highlight. Highly recommended.
My daughter and I had great fun doing this tour. We saw lots of sharks and the tour people were very professional and knowledgeable. It was also entertaining watching the reactions of some of the foreign tourists - there was a lot of screaming. Hilarious.
The coolest thing I've ever done. Had a blast!! At no time was I scared or nervous. The staff on board was great and knowledgeable.
This was my highlight. It was such a rush! I recommend that to anyone who goes
This was amazing! Listen to the advice and take motion sickness medicine at least two hours before and then again right before. I did and did not get sick..others on the boat did not and were not so lucky.
The staff was beyond amazing friendly, knowledgeable and funny! There were SO many sharks, it was incredible. If I ever go back I will definitely do this again, with this same company!
The crew was excellent! Getting to see the Sharks up close is an amazing experience.
Incredible experience!! Overcome a huge fear of mine by doing this and I have no regrets! Only downfall was that the water was extremely choppy which obviously was out of the hands of the crew!! And although I have been out on the ocean multiple times without EVER getting sick, myself and 3 others got very seasick. I highly recommend taking medicine for seasickness just in case!! We were able to see many sharks!! Crew was great!!! Highly recommend!!
An awesome experience. The sharks are so graceful and serene. We just wish our 20 minutes in the cage didn't go so fast!! Would love to do this again one day. One area requiring significant improvement is the rest room facilities at the harbour.
This is a thrilling tour. My teenage daughter and I did this together. We saw lots of sharks swimming around our cage - they came very close - but did not bother us. We were able to have a good view of them. The current was very strong so it was hard to maintain a position in the cage. I would not recommend this tour for small children - arms and legs can easily fit between the bars. Once you are out into the ocean in the cage away from the boat - there is no way to get back onto the boat until your time is up and the crew pull you back to the boat. We were out for about 20 to 30 minutes - so if you do not want to spend that amount of time in the ocean - I would not recommend this for you. Also, if you are motion sensitive - I would strongly encourage you to take Gravol prior to the outing being sea sick will put a real damper on your experience. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guides were quite helpful and entertaining.
