This was a chance for me to do something I never thought I would get a chance to do. To get that close to a shark! I felt like one of the scientists during shark week lol. The crew was helpful and informative. I would definitely do it again..

This is a must do as one of your excursions and because it was my first time in Hawaii, I wanted to do something adventurous that I can tell my family & friends and look back on my life. I went swimming with the dolphins and now the sharks. This is another adventure I can check off my things to... More

First of all, sharks are my favorite animal and I was totally jazzed going into this little adventure. The guys working on the boat were friendly and informative. We got pretty lucky when we went out and saw eight sharks at the same time (both Sand Bar and Galapagos Sharks). The weather was prefect and I just had a great... More

This was the best experience we had while in Hawaii! We were originally scheduled for a 7am excursion but we received a call at 5am the morning of saying they had to cancel because of the weather. We were disappointed, but we were able to reschedule to a different date. When we finally got out there on the boat it... More

We booked with transportation, but they didn't have enough people for our time slot. They were great about switching us and getting everything sorted. I would do this again for sure!!

Most definitely a must do!! The crew was amazing in explaining the what to and how to. The also shared some known bout what shares were "used" for. I was scared or uneasy at first but once they explained things and the sharks were around the boat I was exited to get into the cage and see them under water.... More

cage wasn't sitting right in the water, so our captain had to jump in and fix the ropes solo (i.e. outside of the cage...with the sharks). talk about going above and beyond for your customers! when things did get sorted, the experience in the cage was awesome, and pretty much exactly what i expected. lots of galapagos sharks up close...

Took the 7 am tour and it was amazing. Got to see whales going to the spot to swim with sharks. You get to see a few different kinds of sharks. Crew was awesome! This is a must!

Although below says 20 rather than thirty, we were in the water enough. Saw tons of sharks, guides were amazing, interacted with those that would engage in conversation, we're helpful with other north shore destinations(chip trucks, pipeline, etc.). Lots of sharks sighted from the boat as well as the cage. Highly highly recommended from Canadians
