WHAT TO EXPECT
More than just an adventure, this educational tour takes you into a world that few can ever experience – the open ocean world of sharks!
Located on the North Shore of Oahu, at Haleiwa, this tour takes you into the open ocean, over 3 miles offshore. Here, you can observe Galapagos and Sandbar sharks in their natural environment from the safety of a cage. This floating cage keeps humans and sharks separated from each other. No scuba experience is necessary as you'll enter the cage from above and will stay on the surface using a mask and snorkel. Large polyglass windows let you peer into the open ocean and watch the sharks as they glide gracefully and effortless through the deep blue. Curiosity will bring them within inches of the window where your gaze will meet theirs. To be in the presence of such awe-inspiring animals will open your eyes and change the way you see sharks forever.
A very important part of this shark adventure is education. You will be presented with fascinating facts about shark biology and behaviour, oceanlife, conservation issues and the significanceof sharks in Hawaiian culture and mythology. Hawaiians are intimately connected to the ocean and see sharks as a revered part of their history and belief system. They are respected for their role in the natural balance of the island's ecosystems. Each guest can also take part in the ongoing shark research projects and can become an ambassador for conservation, an experience that will last well past the day of the tour.
An estimated 60% of the world's sharks have been killed and the numbers continue to rapidly decline. Through a personal encounter, we hope to show the beauty and importance of sharks, and that sharks have much more to fear from us than we do from them. A healthy ocean needs sharks, and they need our understanding and protection. With this tour, you will see sharks as you have never seen them before. Anyone that has visited the deep blue walks away a changed person, having found a new appreciation for the ocean's incredible inhabitants.
After the shark tour, you can rinse off with a nice warm, freshwater shower. Then, stick around and spend some time checking out the town and beautiful public beaches nearby. The harbour is easy walking distance from lots of great shops and site seeing in Haleiwa town.
