NOTICE: This activity is no longer available.
Come face to face with the most fearsome predator of all time. The shark is the ultimate predator in the waves, sleek aggressive and decidedly in tune with its surroundings. It has a highly developed sense of smell and taste, you will learn all about this majestic creature on your ride out to the cage.
Then with a huge shot of adrenaline you will come face to face with these astounding creatures in their natural habitat. You will see the beautiful galapagos shark and maybe if you’re lucky the terrifying tiger shark. The crew has the distinction to be the only one in history to swim with and film an encounter with a great white shark in Hawaii. This is one experience to tell your grandkids about!
Our large cage can accommodate up to six people comfortably with built in hand rails, ladder, and two foot by six foot wide plexiglass viewing windows (great for pictures and videos).

Why do the sharks show up?
These sharks have followed crab-fishing boats on the North Shore for many years as they retrieved their crab traps and tossed old bait over the side. The sharks learned that certain boats would hand out scraps of fish. We went to the same places and acted just like a crab boat, but instead started to introduce a cage.
