One of the most amazing things I've ever done. It was extremely safe and very exciting. I've recommended it to many others already.

We saw lot of Sharks, but the GoPro Rental (50$) is so expensive! Is an unforgettable thing, but the cave is very small!

We had a great time! Only thing is we had 6 large people at the same time so I did have a hard time actually getting space to see the sharks for a long period of time. But it was still amazing--tons of sharks. And very educational too!

The water was choppy but you can't help weather. There were about six sharks and they were all about four to six feet long. It was an amazing experience!

I love sharks, hate shark baiting so I chose Hawaii Shark Encounters as their website mentioned they don't bait or scare the sharks into view. I'm not prone to motion sickness but when we went (9:00 am) the water was pretty rough and we got tossed around a bit in the cage and on the boat which resulted in both... More

An unusual experience but worth the money. If the surf is a little high it can get crowded in the cage (when 8 people are in there).

My friend and I booked this adventure before we go to the island. There were several times you could choose from but it was noted the earlier the calmer the waves. We booked the transportation as well because we were staying in Waikiki at that time and you cannot get to the north shore with two people splitting the cost... More

Can't say enough good things about this adventure. The guides Phil and K (sorry can't spell your name) were cordial, knowledgable, polite and accomodating! We saw lots of Galapagos and sand sharks. It was thrilling!!! My boyfriend who was initially reluctant to go had a wonderful time. Kudos to this operation, a must do in Oahu. Thank you for a... More

Visited Honolulu for one day only as we arrived on a cruise ship. whilst most other passengers decided to go shopping, or visit Waikiki, we made the most out of the day by doing some adventurous by going shark cage diving. My partner and l were picked up within a matter of meters from the cruise terminal which was very... More
