Booking our tour was so easy! Every time we would call for some reason, when we would get off the phone we were like “well they were so nice!” Once there, we had a blast. The guides’ sense of humor was great!haha We felt very safe in the cage as well.
Excellent adventure! Guides were very information regarding sharks and the boat was clean and smooth sailing. The number of Galapagos Sharks we saw was amazing and the sharks are huge! This is great for both non swimmers and swimmers.
Booked this last minute and ended up being a highlight of our trip! We have 3 young kids – ages 4, 9, and 10 and they all got into the cage to experience! The 4 yr old was nervous but we put a life jacket on him and he hung out by the rails and had a lot of fun. Completely safe, and captain, first mate, and deckhands made sure we all felt very comfortable. I can see why they warn about sea sickness as you are on open ocean and the boat rocks but we all took a chewable Dramamine as we were leaving the dock and felt great – even my husband who usually gets sea sick. We went early for the 10am tour and timing was perfect. Don’t hesitate – book this tour! It’s amazing.
Wow, I am so glad we found out about North Shore Shark Adventures.
We were in Maui for 8 days and were down to our last day and trying to figure out one last adventure to cap a magnificent trip. We had heard about swimming with sharks, and saw that North Shore Adventures came highly recommended. We were really late in trying to book 2 spots … we were trying to book book for the same day and only one spot remained for the 1pm trip..the last of the day. Shane, the scheduler asked us if we had another day that would work and when we told him it was our last day he said he would work it out and allow us to get two spots. I am SO grateful.
The trip was amazing and definitely a once in a lifetime experience. Captain Dave, and Deckhand Jeremy and assistant Captain Paulina were awesome. Their knowledge of sharks and handling of the boat and cage was great. The weather was a little rough with some pretty good chop and they all did an excellent job maneuvering the boat and getting us in and out of the cage. There were twelve to fifteen sharks circling us the entire time….exciting to say the least. Thanks guys…This was awesome!!
This was such an amazing experience! And the staff was great, very professional, and helped ease any fears. On the ride back to the shore, we saw dolphins and the captain slowed the boat down for us to be able to enjoy the school of dolphins swimming and jumping out of the water.
This was such and incredibly fun experience!!! The crew was amazing and the activity itself was so rad!!! For anyone questioning whether or no they should do it, don’t even second guess it!!! GO NOW!!!
This trip was the highlight of your trip! Ariel and the captain were both so reassuring. The waters were so calm and we were able to clearly see the sharks. What an amazing adventure! We had an 11 year old and 5 teenagers with us. Two people in our group were observers and were able to clearly see sharks from the boat!
Cannot overstate the value and quality of this excursion. What a thrill. The most knowledgeable and skilled staff were genuinely courteous and instilled confidence in a ” non swimmer who fears water and especially sharks “. So glad I took the opportunity when I had the chance. Would do it again in a heartbeat.
At first I was nervous but the crew made us feel safe. It is definitely an adrenaline driven adventure. Would recommend this to anyone. North Shore shark adventures was definitely the place tondo it!! Will recommend it to everyone
I wanted to swim with sharks while on Oahu, but was also a little afraid of the idea. I picked North Shore Shark Adventures because of their ratings and they didn’t disappoint. My family and I had an incredible time and the sharks were amazing. I was never scared once I got in the water and saw them swimming. I highly recommend this experience! TIP: Pick the earliest time available in the morning so the waters will be calmer.
What a great day on Oahu. My son and I went in the water and the sharks were “up close and personal” for our entire time in the cage. It was fantastic! Despite the rough weather we had a great time and really enjoyed the excursion. We really appreciated the flexibility of the staff in allowing our family members to come on board as well (despite the fact they weren’t booked) to watch the fun. The crew was great and provided a safe, educational experience. Many thanks!
Left the harbor in a timely fashion with deckhand Jeremy and Cap’n Dave. There were some spinner dolphins on the way out that were jumping and putting on a show. Made it to the dive cage in about 15 minutes, were briefed on how everything would work and they launched the cage. It was fun to watch the sharks and snap pics from above. 20 minutes later it was our turn! We weren’t weren’t disappointed. My 16 year old grandson, who was a bit reluctant about whether he was going into the cage, had no qualms about it once he got to watch it all, and he was the one diving down to the bottom of the cage for our entire 20 minutes. It was fun, Jeremy was great guide and put everyone at ease on the boat with humor and made us all feel safe. Cap’n Dave guided us out and back smoothly and everyone had a great time. Thanks much!!
