North Shore Shark Adventures™ | SAFE: Oahu Shark Cage Tours

See the beauty and splendor of Hawaii's Sharks as they rise from the depths to greet you. This thrilling experience, the first and finest in Hawaii, will profoundly affect your feelings towards Sharks, as you join them three miles out to sea off Oahu's beautiful North Shore. We gaurantee shark sightings or you don't pay!

The Shark

"Mano" in Hawaiian, is still central to the culture of the native Hawaiians and is featured in many legends. You will leave Haleiwa Small Boat Harbor and travel out to sea to view these beautiful creatures. Often on the way you will also view Dolphins, the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles, and in the winter months, the famous Humpback Whales. All this, and a breathtaking view of Oahu's North Shore are part of the tour.

Experience an amazing Hawaii Shark Encounter on Oahu Island

Does the idea of a shark cage get you excited or scared? Are you looking for that one-of-a-kind unique experience? Do you have a curiosity about sharks? Have you ever wondered what sharks do in their natural environment? Well, come with us and find out.

We are THE ORIGINAL, THE BEST, and the only adventure of its kind... At North Shore Shark Adventures our goal is to help to reshape your perspective about sharks. We aim to educate that sharks are not what we perceive them to be. They’re gentle for the most part but considered dangerous only because they’re more curious than anything. Sharks help to keep nature’s balance between the weak and the strong and are vital to mankind. Our two-hour tours depart from Haleiwa Small Boat Harbor on the North Shore of Oahu and head 3 miles out to sea where our shark cage is moored. We’ll place up to 8 people into our secured metal cage (we’ll provide your mask and snorkel) for 20 minutes. In the cage you’re free to view the sharks in their natural environment for your one-of-a-kind experience. After your twenty minutes are up, you’ll be excited to quell your fear and curiosity of sharks and you’ll want more! Often, we’ll see barracuda, dolphins, green sea turtles, flying fish, and humpback whales (Nov-April).

We welcome all ages and abilities and it’s completely safe! Don’t worry if you can’t swim, our cage includes handle-bars within the cage for you to hold-on to. Capture your adventure forever with our optional video service shot in 1080p or bring your own camera. We’ve been in operation since 2001 and have serviced people from all around the world. We’d love you to join us! Our vessels the “Abunai”, the “Kaiou”, and “Anela” await you in beautiful Haleiwa Small Boat Harbor. Check in at the Shark Shack for free parking.
