VIP Small Group Shark cage Dive

Reviewed by: Erin, 2019/10/09

This excursion exceeded our expectations! The crew was personally and knowledgeable about sharks and the ocean sea life. We had plenty of time in the water with the sharks because of the small group. We also saw a huge pod of dolphins 40-60 jumping out of the water traveling out to our final destination. We felt like they were putting on a show just for us. Important to note we never felt in danger while observing the sharks in the cage. Our guides were professional and patient with the timid swimmers. It was a bucket-list check off for us. We recommend an underwater camera or waterproof pouch for your iPhone. Don’t miss these amazing moments with the sharks. We will back! We highly recommend this excursion! Thanks for an incredible experience!!

So glad we chose Haleiwa Shark Tours/Three Local Boys! Only had six people on boat and cage held six people! We never had to get out of cage! Saw between 10-20 sharks, hard to tell exactly because there was ALWAYS 4-6 in view! The captain and his mate, terrible at names but think Captain was Chris, both very knowledge about history of island and pointed them out as we were going to drop spot. Felt very comfortable in cage - anybody can do this! I'd love to back tomorrow, but we are leaving. HIGHLY recommend Haleiwa Shark Tours

  • Sharks were so close we could almost touch them!!!

  • Awesome creatures!

Good trip but choppy waters

We went for the shark cage adventure on 1st September. It was one of the most terrifying thing we were doing before we started.
The boat was easy to spot, and the best part they waited for us as we got a little late due to road closures. Thumbs up for veltra and the excursion team to work with us on this and keeping us feeling relaxed.
Pro tip: road closures in oahu are really bad, keep more than usual buffer time for your travel.
The boat ride was really choppy, as we were already informed that there were very high waves. The ride could have been slowed down a little(my wife puked due to sea sickness)
Once at the site, we went down in the cage, and after initial jitters of maybe a minute, you start feeling better and safe. So all the folks who are afraid to do so, please just get in the cage, I promise it gets better.
Waters here were again choppy, meaning we were constantly bumping with cage or someone else.
The.good part was we could see multiple galapego sharks, they are magnificent creatures. We saw two upclose and they were big(7-8 feet long).
Ride back was again on rough waters and could have been slowed down a little.
The guides were ok, could have been better and maybe helped us a bit more in water and calming our nerves a little.

We had so much fun!

This was a surprise for my girlfriends birthday and she loved it! We saw so many of sharks! We had done one of the other shark dive without a cage on a smaller boat and did not have the greatest experience.(she got seasick, swimming in strong current, only saw one shark, un-attentive crew...) This experience was the complete opposite. The shark cage makes it so easy to relax in the water and just watch the sharks. Not fighting against the current for this type of experience really makes a huge difference. And you are never worried about what is behind you! The boat itself made a big difference as well. It is an extremely stable power catamaran and is one of the smoothest riding boats i have been on. The captain and crew are one of the friendliest I have encountered. They make sure you are taken care of and happy to share their knowledge of literally everything you can see out on the water and on the island.
