Get a glimpse into the fascinating world of sharks. Join the crew of North Shore Shark Adventures aboard the Kailolo II for an experience of a lifetime.

This shark cage diving tour departs from Haleiwa Boat Harbor. On the way out to the offshore shark grounds, you may see dolphins and green sea turtles. About three miles out the shark cage is placed in the water. Put on your mask and snorkel, climb into the cage and get face to face with sharks.

The most common shark species in this area are Galapagos sharks, grey reef sharks and sandbar sharks, ranging in size from 5 to 15 feet. Occasionally tiger sharks and hammerhead sharks have checked out the shark cage as well. Two of the cage’s four sides have large Plexiglas windows. Bring an underwater camera. The pictures you’ll take on this exciting tour you’ll want to show your friends at home. Those who do not wish to participate can watch the sharks from the boat and pay a reduced price!
