Sharks – As You Have Never Seen Them Before

More than just an adventure, this educational tour takes you into a world that few can ever experience. The open ocean world of sharks!

Located on the North Shore of Oahu, this tour takes you into the open ocean, over three miles off shore, where you can observe Galapagos and Sandbar sharks in their natural environment from the safety of a cage. A floating cage keeps humans and sharks safely separated from each other. No scuba experience is necessary as the guests can enter the cage from above and will stay on the surface using a mask and snorkel. Large Poly Glass windows let you peer into the open ocean and watch the sharks as they glide gracefully and effortless through the deep blue. Curiosity will bring them within inches of the window where your gaze will meet theirs. To be in the presence of such awe inspiring animals will open your eyes and change the way you see sharks forever.

A very important part of our shark adventure is education. You will be presented with fascinating facts about shark biology and behavior, about ocean life, conservation issues and about the significance of sharks in Hawaiian culture and mythology. Hawaiians are intimately connected to the ocean and see sharks as a revered part of their history and belief system. They are respected for their role in the natural balance of the island’s ecosystems. Each guest can also take part in the ongoing shark research projects and can become an ambassador for conservation, an experience that will last well past the day of the tour.

An estimated 60 percent of the world sharks have been killed and the numbers continue to rapidly decline. Through a personal encounter we hope to show the beauty and importance of sharks, and that sharks have much more to fear from us than we do from them. A healthy ocean needs sharks, and they need out understanding and protection.

You will see sharks like you have never seen them before. Anyone that has visited the deep blue walks away a changed person, having found a new appreciation for the ocean’s incredible inhabitants.

It will be the blue water experience you will never forget.

Keep in mind that we are dealing with a wilderness experience and Mother Nature is in charge, so occasionally we must reschedule tours because of the weather. If you’re flexible, we promise to get you in another day.

After the shark tour, check out the town and beautiful public beaches nearby. The harbor is easy walking distance from lots of great shops and site seeing in Haleiwa town.

I’ve always been a bit of a thrillseeker and diving with sharks was definitely something I have wanted to do for a lifetime. As soon as I got in the cage I couldn’t believe the size and the power these animals had!

Diving with sharks is something I’ve always wanted to do. I was a bit nervous at first but the large windowed cage and the experienced guides taught me a lot. This is an experience that I will never forget, I want to thank you all!

Amazing tour for all ages, this is a very educational tour, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and knew everything about these sharks. Being able to be close to one of these ancients animals is incredible, the feeling you get being face to face with a shark is indescribable!

Frightening! I was horrified to see the sharks so close, it was my first impression, even after our tour guide told us all about these sharks and the safety of the cage I kept being nervous, I did relax after all and enjoyed the rest of the tour, but it took me some time. It was worth it though!

This tour was everything I always thought it would be and more. I have always been so fascinated with sharks that I could not pass the opportunity to see them closely, and the fact that the boat crew was so knowledgeable was even better. once in the cage your senses change and you can discover that we are not in the top of the food chain, that we are the pray and not the predator and in a way, it was a life-changing experience
