Hawaii Shark Encounters

Depart Haleiwa Harbor on the Kainani. You will arrive at the shark grounds after a 3 mile, 15 minute ride. Drawn to the surface by the sound of the Kainani’s engine, sharks almost never fail to pay you a visit. The first "victims" get in the cage when the first shark arrives. Just getting in the water is a bit of a thrill. The water is around 400 feet deep and as blue and clear as the open ocean.

Once in the cage, the big plexiglass windows are nearly transparent, so when that 10 foot long Galapagos shark presses his nose against the glass, it looks like he is coming right on in. Don't worry though, he’s not getting in. If you press your nose against the glass, you will be just one quarter of an inch away from the business end of one big shark! Galapagos and sandbar sharks are common visitors. Both of these shark species are very curious, completely unafraid and come very close to the cage.

Tour Highlights:

  • Three mile boat ride to the shark ground off Oahu's North Shore
  • See sharks up close from within the safety of a shark cage
  • Plenty of great underwater photo opportunities

When you leave Turtle Bay Hotel, turn right (north) on 83 to the North Shore and Haleiwa town. It's about a half hour drive (can take longer if there is a surf contest going on on the North Shore!). There will be a traffic signal and a sign pointing you into "Historic" Haleiwa Town. Turn right and follow the road over the white, narrow bridge. Immediately after, turn right again before the 76 gas station (right after Haleiwa Joe's Restaurant). On your right will be the Haleiwa Boat Harbor. Turn right at the sign into the harbor. Stay to the right and follow the road as it curves around and out to the big two story building in the middle of the harbor. Park next to our sign.
