HAWAII SHARK TOURS
Shark or “Mano” in Hawaiian, is still central to the culture of the native Hawaiians and is featured in many legends. Hawaiians today still revere the shark and honor them as ancestral familial GOD’s of long ago. They are one of many central figures in Hawaiian mythology and are featured in countless legends throughout the pacific. The shark God Kamohoali`i guided his sister Fire Goddess Pele on her journey as she escaped a feud with her sister which resulted in the creation of the Hawaiian Islands. We will take you on a journey to see one of the many forms of sharks, the descendants of Hawaiian folklore, and witness their agility and gracefulness as they glide by just inches away from you. All this, and a breathtaking view of Oahu’s North Shore are part of the Hawaii shark tour.
Our adventure begins as we depart Haleiwa Small Boat Harbor and travel 3 miles out to sea. On the way we’ll see a breathtaking view of the north shore coastline, spinner dolphins, green sea turtles, flying fish, and in the winter months, the famous Alaskan humpback whales. Once at the shark diving cage, the sharks will rise from the depths to greet you. This thrilling experience, the first and finest in Hawaii, will change your life and profoundly affect your feelings toward sharks in Hawaii. 100% SHARK SIGHTINGS ARE GUARANTEED OR YOU DON’T PAY!
