  • So great that I’ve done this tour twice! Please note - when they say check in is at say 6:30 am for example - be on time and even plan to be there 6/6:15 am because you never know when you’ll hit traffic and they do NOT wait for anyone - as they shouldn’t. The first time it was a bumpy ride out, yet this time wasn’t so make sure to take Dramamine if needed and just be aware. However once you get to the cage, it is absolutely unreal. You develop such an appreciation of these Galapagos sharks, and they truly “never sleep.” The guides make sure everyone feels comfortable and relaxed while going in. While waiting for the group opposite of you to get out of the cage, many people often get sea sick. BUT even with all these “negatives,” this is the one trip I’d recommend every-time I come to Hawaii. You can see something like 50-100+ ft of visibility and the sharks come so close to the cage. I noticed one shark had a fishing line stuck on her so I hope one day a rescue will be able to get that off. Also will possibly see shrimp, jellyfish, and if you’re lucky - a barracuda. However, recommend for absolutely any age (my grandfather went the first time and he was 77!)!!! Make sure to bring a go pro! Edit: note that the bathrooms do not have doors which was shocking to me (it seems like it’s the park’s bathroom) but no bathroom on board so go before hand!
  • Wow! So much fun. We chose the early shark dive because it is suppose to be less rough on the water. Well, not this day! It was a windy morning and the waters were rough. Granted this isn't the fault of North Shore Shark Adventures. After an easy check in process we boarded the boat and had a short boat ride out to the diving area. The staff was super nice and helpful for some of our passengers that needed a bit more help. The dive itself was divided into 2 groups of 6 which gives you plenty of room in the cage. They supply the snorkel gear which are cleaned and sterilized. On our dive it like I expressed earlier the water was a bit rough and hard to stay steady in the cage but the over all experience was fantastic what I consider the highlight of our entire 10 day trip. Having the open to to the cage relieves any anxiety of being stuck in a cage, which was a selling point for my wife. This adventure is great for anyone that is looking for a little adventure regardless of your swimming level or age. Great for families, couples and friend groups.
