Swimming with Sharks in Hawaii: An Adventure You’ll Never Forget
When you think of extreme sports and activities, what comes to mind? Perhaps something like mountain biking or skydiving? Even something like hiking can be considered extreme and is a great activity for exploring, especially in Hawaii. One of the activities in Hawaii that is an adventure that you will NEVER forget is swimming with sharks on the North Shore of Oahu. Yes, you read that right, and yes, this is an activity in Hawaii that you are going to want to check out.
Really, swimming with sharks is much safer than you might initially think. We’d never do anything to put you in danger, so you can rest assured that this is 100% safe. Though you are in the ocean with sharks, you are in a state-of-the-art shark cage that provides all the protection that you will need. Not only do the perfectly positioned bars prevent the shark from getting in (and by extension, you getting out), a plexiglass barrier surrounds the cage, adding an additional layer of safety.
Rest assured, if you’re sitting there thinking “there is no way I am swimming with shark”, you can still enjoy this fun adventure. You’ll reserve your spots as a passenger and will remain on board while everyone is in the water. You’ll have an overhead view of the sharks swimming below and be able to enjoy the mere site of the ocean’s most feared predator.
Back in the water, you’ll come face to face with a variety of shark species, native to Hawaiian waters and vital to the health of the oceans. Sharks, as terrifying as they are, keep fish species in check throughout the world’s oceans, maintaining a balance that is vital to a healthy ocean. You’ll be just feet from shark, swimming around the cage that is docked to the boat. Typically, the sharks that we encounter are reef sharks and smaller species that stick closer to the shores where fish populations are more reliable. Though these may not be the biggest sharks in the ocean, they are still sharks and just as intimidating as a Great White.
If you’re looking to get out of your comfort zone and try something new, this is the Hawaii activity for you. You’ll venture off the North Shore, finding your dive spot about 3 miles off the coast of the island where sharks naturally gather, following fishing boats in. Swimming with sharks is one of the most extreme activities in Hawaii, and one that you will not want to miss.
