There are more than one shark cage company out of this harbor and we found sharktourshawaii.com to be awesome. You'll read about other companies cancelling or not calling, but this company did. Some were even late and they got a call to ensure they were coming so I can first hand say these people were on their game. Great service... More

The tour was great. Take sea sickness medication, you will need it. Everyone will get some type of nausea in the winter months when the waves are the largest. You will see a lot of sharks and buy the video it is worth it.

Right from the start of the trip we were made to feel welcome by the driver that picked us up. Seeing the sharks on the side of the mini bus made my stomach turn but it was all part of the adventure! When we got to the harbour, we only had to wait a few minutes for the boat, but... More

It was a pretty rough morning on the waters of north Oahu, but we still went out. It may have looked like a scene from the movie "The Perfect Storm," but I think we all felt pretty safe on the boat (and in the water). I will say, during rough seas, I am not sure if there is any amount... More

We loved this! The boat is rather large and reminds one of a coast guard or navy vessel, solid, well made, gray, etc... The cages hang off the back and are pretty cool. When we got about 3 miles off the north shore the boat stopped and the cages were lowered. We divided into 3 groups and our family jumped... More

The crew was absolutely amazing! North Shore Shark Adventures called me the day before and sent a text to confirm my booking. The boat ride out was quite bumpy so if you get sea sick easily its best to take something prior to boarding. Once we got to our spot the crew got everything ready quickly and we started our...

You (and a few other people) float inside a large cage while wearing a snorkel mask. Large sharks swim around you for about 20min. It's awesome! This experience is something you MUST do during your visit. Here's a little insider info I learned during my adventure that you'll want to know. 1) For the last 50 years, boats have been... More

This is an amazing tour to go on. My first day was cancelled due to high waves, but got re booked right away 2 days later. It's best to go as early as possible and that is when the waters are most calm. Lots of sharks and other fish. Very safe, be sure to bring a underwater camera. Snorkel and... More
