One of the best/most fun things we did together as a family while we were in Hawaii (and we were there for 9 days!)

Not scary at all. But absolutely fascinating! There were tons of sharks to see and felt safe the whole time.

This was one of the best parts of my trip to Hawaii. We saw 7 or 8 sharks and a bunch of fish. The cage which had hand rails on the inside and the quality snorkel gear allowed for a great experience (even for a not so great swimmer like me).The staff was friendly and fun which made the experience...

We had the time of our lives! Highlight of our trip! The crew was very professional and knowledgeable! They kept us safe but also we were able to see so much! They also spotted two humpback whales!

The Captain and First mate were personal and professional. After a short boat ride to where the sharks were they were plentiful and AWESOME! I would recommend it for anyone who is a shark lover.

I felt anxious before going but afterwards it was just awesome to have actually swam with sharks! The guides were laid back and so passionate about the sharks. He even took my GoPro and stuck it in the water to get a close up of the sharks in person. Totally would do it again!

We definitely saw sharks but... our 2 hour trip was scheduled for 1:00. Everyone got there early so we left at 12:30 and were told we'd have more time in the water. Instead of getting back at 3 as planned we got back at 2:15.. which doesn't add up to 2 hours. My group had 3 people but all together... More

The crew helped out and give lots of information on the area and the sharks that we saw. The experience was great with lots of sharks and we even saw a whale in... More
