Tours leave out of the Haleiwa Small Boat Harbor in historic Haleiwa Town, about an hour's drive from Waikiki. A safety briefing is given at the start of the tour. Shark Adventures uses "Kailolo" (water crazy) a 26-foot Anderson boat with a swim step on the transom of the boat. Two-hour tours starting in the early morning hours are available throughout the day.
There are two types of tours: SHARK CAGE TOUR - Travel offshore 3 to 4 miles. Once you get to the area, the shark cage is placed in the water. The cage floats on the surface. It measures 7x5x9' high and is made of plexi glass. It can hold 2 people very comfortably, however up to 4 people have been in it at a time, depending on the weather and ocean conditions. Bring an underwater camera to get some of the best photographs of Hawaiian sharks possible anywhere.
The size of the sharks range from 5 to 15 feet. These sharks will be only inches away from the cage. You may bring your own mask and snorkel, however, fins are not necessary. Masks and snorkels are also provided on the vessel. 2 hour tour. You may stay as long as you want in the cage to enjoy the spectacular view.
SHARK TOUR BOAT RIDE - While on this tour you will also have the opportunity to see Hawaiian green sea turtles, dolphins and humpback whales, depending on the season. Bring a camera to get some of the best photographs of Hawaiian sharks possible anywhere. The water is cobalt blue and visibility can be up to 200 feet. You can actually see the sharks come up from the deep. 2 hour tour.
