Hawaii Shark Encounters
$80.00 – $95.00
Located on the North Shore of Oahu, this shark tour takes you out into the open ocean, over 3 miles offshore, where you can observe Galapagos and sandbar sharks in their natural environment from the safety of a shark cage. A floating cage keeps you and the sharks safely separated from each other. No scuba experience is necessary as you can enter the cage from above and stay on the surface using a mask and snorkel.
The large plexiglass windows let you peer into the open ocean and watch the sharks as they glide gracefully and effortlessly through the deep blue. Curiosity brings them within inches of the window, where your gaze meets theirs. To be in the presence of such awe-inspiring animals will open your eyes and change the way you see sharks forever.
See sharks within inches of your face without needing any swimming skills. Join us as we educate you on the importance of the ocean’s ecosystems, the vital role sharks play in oceans, and how they affect us directly.
Age Breakdown: Adult 13+ and Child Rate for 5-12. No infants allowed.
