My boyfriend and I had an AWESOME time with North Shore Shark Adventures! The staff was friendly and informative. We thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the Galapagos sharks and chatting with Jay. On our way out to sea, we came upon a pod of spinner dolphins. The captain let us watch and observe before continuing to our destination. Once we... More

My girlfriend and I just moved to Oahu a month ago, and heard from a friend about how cool the shark tours were on the North Shore. We booked a tour this past Friday and it did not disappoint!! Actually totally exceeded both of our expectations. There were LOADS of Galapagos sharks, and they come towards the boat naturally -... More

Went on the tour yesterday with my wife and two teenage kids. We had a blast. Got to see spinner dolphins and spent about 20 minutes in the cage seeing two different species of sharks which was more than enough time as you get tired fairly quickly. The crew was great, very helpful and informative. Just one note....two passengers got... More

This was a fantastic experience. Truly! We were taken out about 3km from shore to an area where sharks come to visit when they hear the motor of a boat. As soon as we got to the site, there was probably 8-10 sharks at all time. The staff carefully got us in the cage and lowered us out. We just... More

I have been a huge fan of sharks for years! When I got the opportunity to swim with sharks, I couldn't resist! I recommend going on the very first tour of the day. The water is much calmer in the morning. Trust me, it is worth getting up early!! You motor out about 4-5 miles off shore, it is a... More

It was amazing to go in a shark tank and swim with sharks. I would recommend taking some sea sick medicine because it can get choppy. All the crew was nice and helpful.

When came to check in we were warned we might not get in the cage. The waves were too rough. Sure enough we went for a boat ride for nothing. Too rough to get in. We saw sharks around the boat, but pretty boring compared to getting in a cage. I think they should have just called us and said... More

Ok people I bet this could've been fun for me and my daughter but because of some tourists stupidity our side of the cage was completely under water (and my daughter could not swim) I literally had my daughter wrapped around in my arm and my other arm holding on the cage. Let me break it down because I bet... More

What an amazing experience. There were 10-12 sharks 6 to 14 feet long within feet of you. It's totally safe! You are in a shark cage and it does have plexiglass as well. It was so surreal to look down hundreds of feet and see even more. One of the most amazing experiences ever. Make it a bucket list item!... More

This was amazing. They guarantee shark sightings, but we did not have to worry about that. The staff is amazing and getting in the shark cage is worth it. We seen many sharks and a barracuda while in the water. The drive out to the north shore is a beautiful one as well. This side of the island is so... More
