We first went out in a group of 4 which happened to be the last tour of the day; it was really really rough going out, and I was kind of surprised that it was not canceled from the get-go. Anyway, we went out 3 miles, anchored, then were told that it really was too rough, and that it was... More

I loved this trip, water was so clear and could see loads of sharks all round the cage and boat. Would do it again 100% and definitely recommend for others as a "must do." Thought the video was a little expensive, at almost same cost as the trip, but after watching it when I get home it was very good... More

Aloha BenSwansea, Mahalo for joining us on tour and sharing your review. We're glad to know you loved your trip and we appreciate you recommending us as a "MUST DO". We're glad you appreciate the video despite the cost. It's the best $76 you'll ever spend. Visibility on our shark tours is great despite being in 400-600 feet (120-180 meters)... More

This was the one thing I was most excited for on our 12 day trip to Hawaii, and I was not disappointed! We rented a car so we could explore the North Shore before/after our tour which was at 11. I recommend this over using the offered additional transportation. The boat ride out is rough if you're prone to getting... More

I am re-posting my review for NSSA with an updated rating of 5. I originally gave 4 stars stating that while the experience was wonderful the video I paid for did not work. However, after getting in touch with NSSA, they found the saved video taken during my trip (from several months ago) and sent me a new memory card!... More

Aloha Angela_Houser, Mahalo for re-posting and we hope you enjoy your video. As you emphasized, it becomes difficult at times to hold onto the cage and shoot video at the same time. Our video service helps as a backup, just in case. Mahalo for choosing North Shore Shark Adventures! Aloha! More

We did all the major attractions on the Island, whether it was a helictopter tour, Luau, Pearl Harbour, etc... This was our personal favourite. We had 5 sharks circling our cage, it was awesome. If coming from a hotel at Waikiki, I'd recommend renting a car for the day, it's cheaper than taking shuttle.

A really wonderful adventure for my husband, our 18yr old daughter, and her best friend. They enjoyed every minute in the cage- I enjoyed every minute on the boat watching :) Reese and the captain are amazing, so helpful and made the trip so much fun. A must do when in Oahu.

A very comfortable cage, great snorkel gear and cristal clear waters! A big barracuda also payed us a visit and rounded up the great scenario. The adventure is very... More

This was definitely in the top 2 adventures we did on vacation! Great crew and a memorable experience! Do yourself a favor and plan this towards the end of your vacation as it may set the bar too high for some of the other trips/adventures you plan.

The shark cage was very fun and entertaining. Overall, I thought that it was a good value and well worth the time. You are only in the cage about 15 to 20 minutes though, which I think should be at minimum 30 minutes. There were a lot of sharks, tuna and other fish around the cage. It is hard to... More

We went on the shark adventure last week whilst in Honolulu, we drove up to North Shore and boarded the boat for a short trip to the dive side. Snorkels provided and they were a fun crew. We got the option for the video of our dive and it was great. Worked well, we checked it before we left Hawaii.... More
