Shark Cage Dive


Description

This tour has been featured on BBC Outdoors, the Travel Channel and many other shows.  It is one of the most exhilarating experiences you can have in Hawaii. You'll be amazed at how quickly your fear of sharks will disappear and how excited you'll become when you're in the water with such a fascinating creature.  Get ready for a once in a lifetime shark cage dive!

What to Expect on the Tour

The first tour of the day starts at 7 AM for most of the year. Our other tours are available up until 11 AM although later tours can be arranged as needed. Once your tour starts, you will speed out of Haleiwa Harbor for two hours of exhilaration. Our boats are designed with canopies and cushioned seats, so you can experience the adrenaline rush of a lifetime in complete comfort.

To make sure that everyone stays safe, we start out each tour with a safety briefing and a history of the tour. Afterward, masks and snorkels are handed out. From there, we travel about three or four miles from the shoreline to moor the cage in the serene, clear blue water. The visibility is amazing in this area, so you can see up to 150 feet away as the sharks loom in the deep ocean.

On average, the sharks that you will see will range in size from 5 to 15 feet. Up to eight people can fit inside the cage, so your entire family can see the sharks at once. Since the sharks are interested in the sound of the motor, we do not have to use any chumming to get the sharks interested. Pack your underwater camera or buy one on the trip to photograph the sharks up close.

Know before you book:

  • If you know you get motion sickness, take precautions the day before or at least one hour before.
  • We encourage you to bring a towel, swimwear, change of clothes, hat, sunglasses, eco-friendly sunscreen, backpack, and a snack.
  • You can bring your own snorkel and mask.
  • Don't forget to pack your underwater cameras.
  • You can purchase underwater cameras and a video service shot in 1080p if needed.
  • Round trip duration from Check-in to completion is about 2 hours.
  • Each passenger will get 20 minutes in the cage with a group.
  • Shark cage holds up to 8 people comfortably, perfect for small families to experience their shark dive together.
  • Infant boat riders are only allowed on tours before 9am due to rougher waters.
