Having a Hawaii shark encounter on the north shore is a cool, safe way to interact with one of man's greatest feared predators.
It is one of the MOST popular, no EXTREMELY popular things to do on Oahu. I happened to do North Shore Shark Adventure on the day these pictures were taken.
Do an early tour, have breakfast at Haleiwa Cafe afterwards and then tour and hang out on the north shore during the day.
If you've got someone in your group who's not too keen on going in the cage they can ride along on the boat for an observer fee. Last time I checked it was about $60.
After arriving at the boat slip in Haleiwa Harbor you'll board a boat and ride out about 15 minutes or so to a well-known shark feeding area.
This spot is well-known and predictable for sharks hanging around because the fisherman have fished heavily in this area without fail day in and day out so guess what?
The sharks followed and its part of their routine now. Where there's fishermen with bait there will be sharks.
Other good to know things:
My view of the sharks from the boat. Even though I didn't go in I could still see lots of them swimming around.
Everybody I've ever booked for that has come back raving about how "AWESOME" it was. Exact word usually.
They're on cloud nine and have this wicked little twinkle in their eyes I can't describe. My husband Pedro above certainly agreed. To each his own...:)
