North Shore Shark Adventures

North Shore Shark Adventures

Come aboard the Kailolo II for an exciting shark cage diving tour of a lifetime. Departing from the Haleiwa Boat Harbor on Oahu's North Shore, you'll cruise to a location about 3 miles offshore. Then shark cage will then be lowered into the water and you can climb in.

Now is your chance to get face to face with sharks. Shark species that frequent this area include Galapagos sharks, grey reef sharks and sandbar sharks ranging in size from 5 to 15 feet. Occasionally tiger sharks and hammerhead sharks can be seen as well.

During your shark encounter, the shark cage will be floating on the surface the entire time. No diving experience is necessary. All you need is a mask and snorkel (will be provided or you can bring your own). You will be able to see the sharks through two large Plexiglass windows on both sides of the shark cage. If you have friends or family members who do not wish to get into the shark cage, no problem. They can come along as a rider for a reduced price.
