This tour will leave you speechless. We had a once in lifetime experience. We saw a 16 foot tiger shark, named Niki. She is well know to Miles and Jax. We were able to see sharks: Nice easy ride to the cafe. Jax and Miles were very responsible young men. Very informative. Great experience. A few things, would have liked to seen water provided, some kind of transportation arranged, as we were staying in Waikiki, even if we had to pay more.

This is truly an amazing adventure to experience. The crew are knowledgeable, helpful and very fun. Being able to experience sharks in their natural habitat is amazing. I’ve done this 6 times with my family and will as many times as we go visit the island. You are at the mercy of nature and sometimes see more than other times but it is always worth it! I highly recommend to everyone!

It was a great trip. Saw many sharks while in the cage (and from the back of the boat) and they came very close to the cage for great viewing. We were even able to see Roxy, the local tiger shark. I recommend going early in the morning to avoid large waves that tend to get larger as the day goes on. Our tour was 12-2 and the surf was very energetic (i.e. high waves) and it was difficult to stay oriented in the cage, but was still a great experience that I highly recommend! Eric and Captain Dave did a great job! HI Shark Encounters only has the one boat going out, so the crew makes the trip very personal and enjoyable for whatever you need and you do not feel rushed. Eric provided some great insight into how sharks hunt and the value they bring to the ocean. This trip was a little more expensive than the other company, but I highly recommend HI Shark Encounters based on our experience.

The tour was everything we thought it would be, and more. The ride was rough with the waves since we were in the waters of the north shore, but the crew helped us out by providing tips to help with the sea sickness and also TicTacs to help with the discomfort. They really know what they are doing. We were able to see tons of sharks swimming around our cage, it was really really fun. If you follow the instructions provided by the crew, there should be no safety issues whatsoever. Highly recommend.

I had tried to book this experience three years ago on an afternoon and it got cancelled on me when waters got too choppy. So I made sure to book the first sailing at 7am on this trip. It did not disappoint. They took the time to explain to us about the sharks we were going to see, and when we got to the spot they lowered the cage and we were able to get more than enough time to look at the sharks under water.
It's a basic boat with no amenities but that's all we needed for a two hour experience. Staff was great and very appreciative of us coming. Would definitely go again next time I'm in Oahu

This is the coolest trip! It's not really a loungy-easy-day on a boat. You get a little knocked around in the cage and swallow the odd gulp when the water is choppy, but it is so worth it. It was one of the most amazing vacation experiences we've ever had. Fun, exciting but always felt safe. Guides were relaxed and informative. There were probably eight to ten sharks around the cage. Very close up view and encounter. They're checking you out too. Very cool!

This is a different snorkel experience! Great way to see sharks in fairly safe environment. Recommend to do early morning schedule as the water is calmer.

Aloha Bellame, You are very correct this is a different snorkeling experience to most other adventures. We pride our selves on being a non invasive tour. Swimming with sharks in the safety and confinement of our cage. It allows the sharks to go about their natural habits and do some light people watching. Early morning tours are always best as the winds are light and waters are usually more calm. Come back out with us anytime! Mahalo -Hawaii Shark Encounters-
