North Shore Shark Adventures
Join the friendly crew of the Kailolo II for an exciting shark cage tour in the waters off Oahu's North Shore. Departing from the Haleiwa Small Boat Harbor, you'll cruise around three miles offshore. Keep an eye out for dolphins and flying fish which are often times seen along the way. Once you reach the shark grounds, you’ll be outfitted with a mask and snorkel. The shark cage will be floating on the water's surface for the entire during of this adventure. No diving experience is necessary.
This is your chance to see a variety of sharks up close and to learn more about these fascinating marine animals. Shark species that frequent these waters include sandbar sharks, Galapagos sharks and grey reef sharks ranging in size from 5 to 15 feet. Sometimes tiger and hammerhead sharks are seen as well.
If you have friends or family members who do not wish to get into the shark cage, no problem. They can come along as a rider for a reduced price.
