Two Ways to Swim with Sharks on Oahu
Of all the things that are on your Hawaii to-do list, swimming with sharks may not be low on the list. There is something off putting about swimming with the most feared predator in the ocean, staring face to face with a shark that is in its habitat. And while we really can’t blame you, we think that we can show you that this is a great activity for your trip, and convince you that this will be one of the best things that you can do while visiting Oahu.
There are two ways to swim with sharks in Hawaii. One way is to head to Sea Life Park, on Oahu’s South Shore, and enter a custom shark tank. During this adventure, you’ll be separated from the sharks and will have your own area to move around, ensuring that you are safe from the sharks. This is a lot of fun, and if you are not a fan of the ocean, a great option for doing something daring.
The other option for swimming with sharks is to actually swim with sharks in the ocean. You’ll head off of Oahu’s North Shore about 3 miles and enter a state of the art shark cage that anchors to the boat. From the boat, and inside the cage, sharks surround you, swimming freely in their natural habitat, while you are just inches away. The only thing that separates you from the sharks is the cage and protective barriers that are put in place to make sure nothing can get in or out of the cage. Trust us, there is nothing quite like entering their domain and seeing huge sharks up close.
Swimming with sharks is one activity that will get you heart racing. Just the site of a shark is enough to send a shiver up your spine, and as they get near, your flight or fight instinct takes over. Of course, every safety precaution imaginable is taken to ensure that nothing happens to any person or shark so rest assured that you will not be in any danger. The shark is a sacred creature in Hawaiian lore and preserving them is so vital to the health of the oceans. We are only here to observe and want to make sure that everyone has a good time, and comes back with a thrill they will never forget.
