My husband, my sister, brother in law and myself were terrified! We had to make our trip memorable so why not shark dive? Lol we had so much fun. Just riding the boat to the cage was amazing because of the views. Once in the cage we felt totally safe and words cannot explain how amazing our experience was. A... More

We really enjoyed the shark cage. We couldn't tell you how many sharks were swimming around there were so many. We even got to see some whales on the way out which turned out to be a godsend because our whale watching tour was cancelled later in the week due to high winds. We even got to see a huge... More

You get what you came for but not much more. The boats was somewhat small and cramped but nobody comes for a nice boat ride. What everybody comes for is the Sharks.... And there's a lot of them. The waters full of sharks and the occasional barracuda. The crew was nice and pleasant, and they addressed our various needs. Overall,... More

North Shore departing from Haleiwa was the highlight of our Oahu trip. For all the picturesque beauty the island holds, nothing compares to the up close beauty of mother nature gliding effortlessly through the open water 3 miles offshore. Once the boat reaches it viewing location and the cage is inserted, the fun begins. The sharks themselves waste little time... More

This shark viewing site is well established, so the sharks were ready and waiting for us (about 10)! The floating cage (with heavy-duty acrylic panels) is tethered, so you won't go drifting out to sea. You just jump into the cage from the boat. Totally enjoyed getting so "up close and personal" with the sharks! Our particular "cruise" had a... More

If there is one thing to do on Oahu, this is it. Highly recommend that you book early in your visit. The reason is that the tour is subject to the conditions on the water. An early booking that cancels allows for rebooking later during the visit. This is what happen to us. We had a great time. In addition... More

Booked months in advance, fully paid for months in advance, and hence; was super excited for months. Unfortunately, this so called "business" doesn't know the first thing about business. Or anything, for that matter. The trouble first started when we called up a few days before our adventure and was told we were not even listed on the hotel pick... More

I paid extra for transportation from Waikiki. My driver picked me up promptly at 5:30am... HE WAS THE BEST CONVERSATION OF THE ENTIRE TRIP! MAHALO GABRIEL! The crew and the other tourists on the boat didn't seem as eager as I was to be swimming with sharks first thing in the morning, so, everything was mostly quiet and awkward despite... More

We had read previous reviews, so took motion sickness meds in advance. We had no problems. This was on my 7 y/o bucket list and he loved it. the crew answered all his questions. My 5 y/o got in the cage, looked down then giggled and said "sharks!" No fear! A great experience
