Beware of the choppy waters and make sure you take anti-nausea medication if you get sea sick. If you're able to get past that, the view of the sharks make it all worth it. Recommendation to North Shore: we're relatively tall and found it uncomfortable holding on to the bars inside the cage because there were only bars on the... More

This was a tour which took in total 4 hrs including 1hr travel each way from waikiki. Driver drove in silence there and back, no commentary, no info on where we were driving through etc. Got on boat, very basic overview abt lifejackets. Divided into 3 groups. Each group got 20 mins in the water. Slogged $75 for a video... More

First of all I want to note that I would rate the shark experience a 5, however I deducted my rating because of an issue with buying the video. I will address the issue first and then continue my rave on the shark experience! I am a picture person and find pictures to be the best souvenirs on trips, so... More

My husband and I booked last minute. They had a nice little military discount that helped seal the deal. It was beautiful, fun, and the crew was great. The GoPro video is a great investment, and my husband also LOVES his t shirt. Great quality and worth the extra dough. Don't miss it!

There is nothing else like it! Incredible! Simply "keep your hands & feet inside the ride at all times" and it's perfectly safe! Our three kids didn't want to get in the water, but I wish they would have. They, as I, would/will never forget it. What it isn't: a luxury yacht with champagne brunch and concierge service. So I...

My nerves almost got the best of me! My two boys (8 and 10) decided at the last minute on the boat to do the cage part with my husband so I felt I needed to go too to "protect" them. I'm so glad I went it!!! I agree with previous reviewer that it wasn't scary and was great once... More

Amazing...... If you want to jump into a cage floating in the ocean with sharks circling, this is for you. Being the great mother I am I took 3 teenage children with me and I was the only one having trouble stepping off the boat. The sharks weren't menacing or anything but it was a really exciting experience. We took... More

This was a fun experience for us two couples because this was a first for us all to be in a shark cage! It was so worth the money!! We did the earliest tour which was 6 am and it was better that way because of the ocean not being choppy. We took motion sickness medicine before and didn't eat... More

Definitely an experience we will never forget! Galapagos sharks surrounded us as well as a handful of Barracuda! GREAT crew! Incredibly friendly and professional. If you are prone to motion sickness, take medication the night before and again the morning on an empty stomach and then eat a light breakfast. Masks and snorkels are provided.
