North Shore Shark Adventures

North Shore Shark Adventures

During your North Shore Shark Adventure, you’ll be able to view the splendor and beauty of Hawaii’s many sharks as they leave their homes in the deep seas to visit you on the surface.  While you join the sharks three miles off of Oahu’s North Shore, your feelings towards sharks will certainly alter.

The excursion starts out when you leave Haleiwa and journey out to the ocean to check out our beloved sharks in their natural, comfortable habitat.  You may even be lucky enough to see humpback whales, green sea turtles, dolphins, and more during your Oahu Shark Encounter.  You can even have close-up encounters during your tour since two of the four cage’s walls are made of plexi-glass!  If you don’t see a shark during your North Shore Shark Encounter, you get a refund

During your Oahu Shark Adventure, you may encounter galapago, sandbar, or gray reef sharks.  You may even see the mysterious hammerhead or tiger shark.  This is one Hawaii Vacation Package that has been proudly featured on Wildlife TV, ESPN, and BBC.  Don’t forget your underwater camera!  If you’re not crazy about getting extremely up close and personal, don’t worry.  You can just stay on the boat and check out the sharks from there for a reduced rate.
