Tour Highlights:

2 hour tour 42-foot aluminum boat
5 to 15 feet sharks
Safe shark cage
Sharks are inches away Picturesque landscapes
Cobalt Blue Water Galapagos & Sandbar Sharks

There is no transportation available to and from this activity - guests must make their own way to the Haleiwa Boat Harbor.

The tour leaves Haleiwa Boat Harbor and lasts two-hours. Tours are available throughout the day Shark Adventures uses a 42-foot aluminum boat. Safety of our passengers is our first priority, with a safety briefing given at the start of the tour. People may bring their own mask and snorkel, however, fins are not necessary. Masks and snorkels are also provided on the vessel "Kailolo II". "Kailolo" means water crazy. 

Once we get to the area, the shark cage is placed in the water. The cage floats on the surface of the water. The water is a cobalt blue and visibility is approximately 200 feet or more. You can actually see the sharks come up from the deep. While on this tour, you will have the opportunity to also see Hawaiian Green Sea turtles, dolphins and humpback whales,depending on the season. We travel offshore of Haleiwa approximately 3 to 4 miles. People are encouraged to bring underwater cameras because they will be able to get some of the best photographs of Hawaiian sharks possible anywhere. 

The size of the sharks range from 5 feet to 15 feet. These sharks will be only inches away from the cage and those inside.

People from around the World, including England, Ireland, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and Japan and from almost every State in the mainland have enjoyed the tour. Some of the people that come on the tour have not even been in the ocean before. A lot of people come with phobia about sharks. After the tour their inhibitions and phobias disappear and they have a greater respect for sharks.
