Shark Cage Tour - North Shore Shark Adventures
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 and measures 9 foot by 9 foot by 8 foot high and is made of metal and plexiglass. It can hold 4 people very comfortably, with up to 8 people depending on the weather and ocean conditions. Bring an underwater camera to get some of the best photographs of Hawaiian sharks possible. The sharks range from 5 to 15 feet long. These sharks will be only inches away from the cage. You may stay up to 30 minutes in the cage to enjoy the spectacular view of a variety of sharks, mostly Galapagos, sandbar, and lemon sharks, which can reach up to 13 feet long. Occasionally you can see hammerhead sharks and tiger sharks. You may even see humpback whales when in season, barracuda, manta rays, spinner dolphins, turtles, yellowfin tuna and ulua.

North Shore Shark Adventures was a highlight from our honeymoon. My wife loves sharks and being up close and personal to them was amazing. The crew that took us out was fun and informative. We loved the whole time we were out on the water and especially being in that cage. A five star rating system does not go high enough for these guys. We already recommend everyone we know that is taking a Hawaiian vacation to check this activity out. Thank you Tom Barefoot for hooking us up!!!
The shark tour was fantastic. We were fortunate to have just our family on the boat. We went about three miles out, then set the cage and hopped in. There were at least 8 sharks, 3 were larger than 12 ft.
My 9 yr old daughter was hesitant, but ultimately jumped in with us. She loved it.
We took a few underwater cameras... waste of time and cash. With everyone kicking in the cage, it's too hard to line up a shot. They charge 70 dollars for a dvd they shoot from a gopro on a pole 5 ft outside the cage. It was worth every penny.
Overall, loved the trip. The whole family thought it was the best thing they did on the North Shore.
