Super unique experience, felt safe entire time, saw a bunch of sharks!
Oct 2021
This was such a cool tour and did not disappoint. The drive from Honolulu is ~45 min, and there is parking + public bathrooms right there. We had about 8 people total + 3 guides on the boat, and then are on the boat about 15 min (you will get wet) 3 miles away from shore to get to depth of ~240 feet. As someone who actually isn't that adventurous, I was a bit nervous, but the guides (Braxton, Sam, Babe) were what made this tour - extremely friendly, kind, thorough, and funny! You free swim / snorkel for a bit and near immediately you already see sharks of large and small sizes, by themselves and in groups. We even saw a hammerhead. Some sharks did get close but generally stayed socially distant. And an added bonus is that the guides took pictures for us (ended up air dropping me 200+ photos and videos) so this makes it an awesome opportunity for the 'gram.

The current ended up being quite strong so we had to hold onto a rope to stay still vs. free swimming unfortunately and that resulted in a few folks getting sea sick upon returning to the boat. Went when the water was ~70-75 degrees but being far out with the wind, it gets cold so wear layers over you bathing suit. And you're right down the street from the main street/down town Haleiwa with all the food trucks and little shops for lunch afterwards.

Cute sharks :)
Oct 2021
Mauve, Sam, and Braxton were all very knowledgeable and super fun! The ocean was a bit rough when we went out so we had to hang onto a rope for quite some time as the waves were rough. That made me a bit sea sick. I wished we were able to free swim more but understood that because of weathering conditions, that wasn't possible. However, the sharks were cool! They swam close enough to us, saw a bunch! Photos came out OK since we were all bunched up due to rope. Overall, the crew gave good instructions for what to do.

Safe and super fun
Oct 2021 • Couples
This was a highlight of our trip to Hawaii. The crew (Braxton, Sam and Babe) were so fun and knowledgeable and put us at ease. This is a completely safe experience—the sharks are not aggressive but just curious and swim near you. I highly recommend this over a cage dive. Would do it again tomorrow if I could!

Aug 2021
Enjoyed this experience! From the beginning to end the captain and crew took good care of us. We only saw one sandbar shark and some fish on our tour but that is the luck of the draw. The tour does not allow photos but the crew took photos and videos with a gopro and provided for free. It was explained this was for the safety of the sharks and humans. Highly recommend!

Amazing!
Amazing! Their staff was incredible and we saw so many sharks, including a beautiful female tiger shark that stayed with us for a while.

I felt very safe with the staff. They did an amazing job managing us and making us feel safe. They made it so fun even though I was super nervous. I don’t know if I would do it again, it might be pushing my luck, LOL, but I am definitely glad I can check it off my bucket list. An amazing experience all around.

Magical
Jul 2021 • Couples
First off, the experience was simply surreal. Sharks accepting us in their water their home was humbling and just magical. Our Captain was very thorough with the orientation, so our small group (of 8) had all the information before going into the water swimming with sharks, we learned about the should-dos and should-not-dos. Absolutely pay attention here, because when the first shark was swimming towards me, all I had on my mind was to calm myself down by reminding myself of what the Captain had said-- no splashing, don't get overly excited (because their electric sensor could sense fear/excitement that animals/humans give off), and maintain eye contact. We had two divers (one taking pictures/videos) in the water with us at all times. The first shark got close to about 4-5 feet away, then it turned away. It was nerve wrecking yet phenomenal in the sense where all the crap we've been taught by the media about sharks is so utterly untrue. This real encounter has opened my eyes and changed my perspective forever. I highly recommend this tour to everyone. So grateful for crew at Island View for making us feel very safe, and for the sharks to meet us in their home. Mahalo!

I was super apprehensive to book a "Swimming with the Sharks" excursion but we had heard great things about Island View and they did not disappoint! My 23yo son, 21yo daughter and I loved this excursion. The crew was amazing and explained everything. If you are on the fence, just book this! It was amazing and the incredible videos and photos are included in the price!

You won't want to miss this!
Apr 2021
My husband and I were visiting O'ahu for the first time and just had to try this...it was SO worth it! Although we were nervous about swimming with sharks after watching the news and hearing horror stories, we learned that these creatures are so amazing!

We were on a small boat with three other participants and were happy that it was with a smaller group. It felt more personal and intimate. Our guides were welcoming and knowledgeable about the sharks and we could tell that they truly wanted to educate others about these amazing creatures. While in the water, our guides checked on us and made sure we were comfortable throughout the experience. We were able to see Galapagos sharks and they were so close to us! Despite this, they were so calm and majestic as they swam around us.

We had a wonderful time and like all the other reviews mentioned, leave your preconceived notions about sharks behind! You won't want to miss this.
