The shark dive experience was amazing. The weather/water conditions were not exactly perfect but the crew was great and we all saw many sharks that were literally next to the cage!

The weater was beautiful and our captain and deckhand, Phillip and Kaleo, were very welcoming, enthusiastic, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. During the ride out to the cage, they taught us about the sharks and other marine life that are... More

My husband and I booked this activity for our trip to Oahu after a recommendation from friends who had been on a similar excursion. We had a rental car so we were able to drive ourselves from Waikiki and easily find the departure point. There were about 10 people on our boat plus the captain and a crew member. We... More

I am terrified of sharks, but this was at the top of my 11 year old sons list of things he wanted to do on our holiday so I gave in and booked and i'm so glad I did. Our first booking was cancelled due to bad weather, but these guys were awesome and managed to get us on another... More

One of the most amazing things I've ever done. It was extremely safe and very exciting. I've recommended it to many others already.

We saw lot of Sharks, but the GoPro Rental (50$) is so expensive! Is an unforgettable thing, but the cave is very small!

We had a great time! Only thing is we had 6 large people at the same time so I did have a hard time actually getting space to see the sharks for a long period of time. But it was still amazing--tons of sharks. And very educational too!
