This is the second time we’ve used Hawaii Shark Encounters. The crew focuses on safety first and then give you an amazing adventure. The educational piece is an added bonus and helps spread the message that sharks are our friends and important to maintaining balance in the ocean...

WOW! One of the most amazing experiences in a shark cage. Great information and knowledgeable crew! The crew gave us some interesting facts and a different insight on sharks. As an avid snorkel and free diver the information was helpful if i ever encountered a shark. Highly recommended to all shark enthusiast.

The guys were great. So friendly and knowledgeable. I went by myself and they did a great job of building rapport and making the whole group feel welcomed and comfortable. I can’t belive how many sharks we saw too. I will definitely book again with them on my next trip to Oahu. I’m hoping to take my 6 y/o and as long as your child can snorkel, this would be great for kids too.

I just got back from my 4th trip with these guys and it is awesome every time! I go about every 2-3 years and it’s just as exciting every trip! The captain and crew on the boat were both really knowledgeable and I learn something new every time. It’s very safe and would be great for younger kids also. I’ve heard people say “thanks for ruining my vacation”......”cause nothing is going to be this awesome or top this for the rest of our vacation !” Lol
Maholo, Keep it up guys and I’ll see you again in 2 years!
