The first tour starts at 7 am with the exception of June through August when the first tour departs at 6 am. Additional tours occur up to 11 am and, depending on availability, later tours are available. Each tour leaves Haleiwa Harbor and lasts approximately 2 hours. Our fleet includes custom made aluminum boats, the 36 foot “KAIOU”, and the 42 foot “ABUNAI” which includes a canopy for shade and cushioned seating for comfort. With your safety in mind, we hold an informative safety briefing at the beginning of each tour followed by a brief history of the shark tours. Masks and snorkels are provided, however, you are free to bring your own (fins are not necessary). The sharks we 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. Our cage can hold up to 8 people comfortably which allows small families to experience their shark dive together. No chumming is necessary as the sharks are attracted to the sound of our motors which they interpret as a crabbing vessel and a potential food source. Guests are encouraged to bring their own underwater cameras for the opportunity to capture the best footage of Hawaiian sharks anywhere. Disposable cameras and a video option are also available for purchase.
We operate shark cage diving daily except Christmas Day and require you to check in 30 minutes prior to your tour start time. Total time from check-in to completion is approximately 2 hours. We drop the cage into the water up to 3 times per tour for about 20 minutes each drop. Each shark cage passenger gets to experience 1 drop.
We strongly encourage you to take the earliest time available. To take advantage of the calmer morning conditions and to maximize passenger comfort, we operate our morning tours first before opening later tours. If you’re only able to make an afternoon appointment, please call or email us for recommendations. We’ll see sharks no matter the time of day or you don’t pay!
