What to expect

Be ready to see the sharks face to face as they rise from the depths for an unforgettable experience! Have you always wanted to swim with sharks on Oahu? This experience is for you!

The shark is nature's most perfect predator and has existed for over 350 million years, even before the time of the dinosaurs. The sharks featured on this tour include the Galapagos and Sandbar sharks with the occasional sighting of a Tiger shark but you'll never know what might show up. In Hawaiian legend, each island has its own shark god. It was said that Kamohoali'i, the king shark god of Oahu, was a ferocious man who was able to convert between "shark" and "man" at his choosing and provided the canoe which brought Pele to Hawai’i from Tahiti. He lived in an underwater cave off of Pearl Harbor and is the elder brother of the fire goddess Pele.

The sharks you see range in size from five to fifteen feet which are often inches away from the cage and the spectators inside. We'll travel offshore three to four miles to our cage moored in the beautiful cobalt blue water. The visibility is so good (often 150 feet or more) that you can actually see the sharks come up from the deep. The cage can hold up to 8 people comfortably which allows small families to experience their shark dive together.
