Important Information for Your Hawaii Shark Cage Dive
A little preparation never hurt anyone, right? Not only does this statement hold true for an entire vacation, it holds true for the fun activities, tours, and adventures that you’ll take part in during your vacation. Before you head out on a Hawaii Shark Cage Dive, you’ll want to take in as much information as you can so that you are ready for the first appearance of sharks. This is an incredibly fun adventure, even if you don’t enter the water, and though the site of the sharks will make your heart race, you’ll want to have as much information beforehand so that you are ready to get in the water and face these ferocious predators.
First and foremost, this adventure is all about safety and fun. While we want you to have as much fun as possible, staying safe is a the biggest concern. These are real sharks, in the ocean, with only a shark cage separating you and them. Keep all hands, feet, fingers, toes, and heads in the cage at all times, and be aware of your surroundings.
Options for Entering the Ocean…or not
Some choose to stay on board the boat and watch the sharks swim around from the safety of the deck. And this is perfectly fine. You will still have a great time at sea, and will love watching the scenery as you head out to the dive spot.
Why are sharks gathering here?
There is a misconception that sharks gather here due to chumming, but that is not the case. Sharks are following fishing boats in following a morning of fishing, and though it is not known why they gather in this spot, they continue to do so. There is a state of the art shark cage docked out at the dive spot and you’re simply entering the water where the sharks are swimming.
So Many Sharks!
Sharks have long been held in the highest regard in Hawaii, seen as an important part of the ocean and worshipped by locals. There are many different shark species that call Hawaiian waters home, and though encountering a Great White, Tiger, or Bull Shark is not that common, and very unlikely to happen, you will find a number of species here, including Whitetip Reef Sharks, Sandbar Sharks, Galapagos Sharks, and Grey Reef Sharks, and occasionally we’ll encounter something else, but not usually.
