From start to finish, our experience on this trip was beyond amazing. I honestly can’t put into words how great this journey was for us. The staff was amazing! Very kind, clear and patient when it comes to rules, the boat ride, getting in with the sharks and getting onto the boat once you’re finished. I honestly couldn’t have imagined seeing sharks through any other company.

The crew at Hawaii Shark Encounters was so helpful, informative and fun. They really made the experience that much more memorable. I cannot say enough good things about this company and will be taking anyone that comes to visit me on this excursion. My only complaint is that I wanted to stay in the water with the sharks even longer. LOL
