Oahu shark encounter tours depart from the island’s North Shore. You’ll head out into the open ocean, and about 3 miles offshore you’ll have the opportunity to get into the shark cage. This is more than just an exciting adventure. It’s an educational experience as well, something very few people ever get to do.
Shark species that you’re most likely to see include Galapagos sharks, sandbar sharks, grey reef sharks and the occasional tiger shark. Best of all, no scuba diving experience is necessary. You’ll enter the shark cage from the boat and stay on the surface using a snorkel and mask. The shark cage has large polyglass windows that let you observe she sharks from a safe vantage point.
