Hawaii Shark Encounters
One of the most exciting Oahu Activities and Hawaii Activities is now being offered through Oahu Activities Discount: Oahu Shark Cage Diving Tours! The Hawaii Shark Adventures take place in North Shore of Hawaii, where you’ll be able to take in the gorgeous natural beauty and scenery that the island has to offer. While there are many Oahu activities to take part in during your Hawaii vacation, why not check out something unique like North Shore Shark Encounters? Your Hawaii Shark Adventure may start as early in the morning as 6:00 and usually lasts about two and a half hours.
Our shark vessels leave from Haleiwa Harbor and travel three miles (about fifteen minutes) into the sea. We stand behind our Oahu Shark Cage Diving Tours; if you don’t see a shark during your Hawaii Shark Encounter, we’ll give you a full refund! This is one of the few Hawaii activities and Oahu activities that fully guarantees their tour.
You don’t have to have tons of diving experience to check out a North Shore Shark Encounter. There’s also no age limit, so bring the kids! But don’t worry: even you experienced divers will be thrilled and excited during your shark adventure. Oahu Shark Cage Diving Tours are amazing fun for everyone!
During your Hawaii Shark Adventure, you’ll be within the world’s biggest shark cage. Don’t worry—the cage is absolutely safe, and sharks don’t bite or attack the cage. There’s a ladder, also, so you don’t have to worry about swimming to the shark cage.
