WELCOME TO HAWAII SHARK ENCOUNTERS
Let us take you 3 miles off the fabled North Shore of beautiful Oahu, where you can see several shark species in their natural habitat from the safety of our cage. Plexiglass windows ensure an amazing, unobstructed close-up view on this Oahu shark.
See sharks within inches of your face without needing any swimming skills. Join us as we educate you on the importance of the ocean’s ecosystems, the vital role sharks play in oceans, and how they affect us directly.
Dive Oahu with us in the winter months, to see whales, and if you listen closely, you can hear them singing. During the summer months, you can see plenty of dolphins dancing around the boat. Swimming with sharks near Oahu truly is amazing.
We strive to make your encounter one of the most memorable experiences of your life. From the moment of booking to walking back on the dock, we are here to meet your needs and exceed your expectations.
There are approximately 500 different species of sharks, and here in Hawaii we have about 40. On your tour, you get to encounter our three main species: Galapagos, sandbar, and tiger sharks. Occasionally, we see blue sharks, silkies, and hammerheads.
We pride ourselves on the opportunity to change people’s minds with one close encounter at a time. We focus on education and conservation to ultimately better the planet we coexist in.
Hawaii Shark Encounters maintains a perfect safety record. Your safety is our first priority.
Let’s wake up from the “Jaws” era and discover sharks as our friends. Sharks have been portrayed as bloodthirsty monsters, but you are about to discover that this is so far from the truth.
Our oceans are a delicate balance of ecosystems that are threatened in today’s society. Sharks are the apex predators that maintain a balance in the ocean’s ecosystems and are necessary for our oceans’ survival and ultimately for mankind.
