North Shore Shark Adventures
On the North Shore Shark Encounters, you will see the splendor and beauty of Hawaii’s sharks as they rise from the depths to greet you. Join the sharks 3 miles off Oahu's beautiful North Shore during this incredible encounter. This thrilling experience, offered nowhere else in Hawaii, will profoundly affect your feelings towards sharks.
We leave Haleiwa (Oahu/North Shore) and travel out to sea to view these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat. Often on the way you'll also see Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles, dolphins, and Humpback Whales (November through May).
Guaranteed shark encounter or you get your money back!
On your shark adventure you may encounter Galapagos, Gray Reef sharks and Sandbar sharks. Occasionally there have been visits from mysterious Hammerhead and Tiger sharks.
This adventure has been featured on ESPN Outdoors, BBC Outdoors, and on Canadian Wildlife TV. Don't forget your underwater camera!
Those who do not wish to participate can watch the sharks from the boat and pay reduced price.
