This trip was great!! Even if you don’t think you’ll get sea sick- TAKE DRAMAMINE!!! if you’re bringing a phone/camera, make sure you have a wrist strap or something secure- once you drop your phone/camera, it’s for the fishies. Our tour guides Erin and Kanaloa were awesome! Very kind, patient, and knowledgeable!! Thank you!

I can’t remember the name of the man and woman who went out with us but both were professional and kind. A short boat ride out and not long after we were in the water looking and tons of beautiful sharks. One of the best experiences I had on the island and I highly recommend this tour.

Vi hade en fantastisk upplevelse tillsammans med Halewia Shark Tours. Våra guider var mycket professionella, trevliga och var tydliga i sin information och kunskap. Att få möjligheten att bada med hajarna var en upplevelse vi hade längtat länge efter och detta var exakt så bra som vi hade hoppats! Det enda svåra var att hitta båten i hamnen då det var så mycket olika båtar och tours omkring.

Great tour, we were the last of the day and got to see them pull the cage out of the water! The time in the water with the sharks was great too, not only did we see 6-7 sharks, there were small fishes around like mackerel! One thing to remember, always bring something for sea sickness, the water even on a beautiful day with only 3-4’ swells can get to you!

Our tour was moved from 9 to 7 due to conditions and the communication was great to let us know with plenty of advance, almost 48 hours, to plan accordingly. Once there, the boat was clean and the crew was awesome. A quick, beautiful 3 mile ride out to the grounds where we slowed to see som dolphins near another boat. Once at their spot, the cage was lowered and fun began! There was plenty of room in there for our group of 4! Being from Wisconsin, to be three feet from a shark in the ocean was exhilarating. Towards the end of our time, there was three sharks swimming around the cage, never once was there any aggressive motions, even towards their photographer swimming outside the cage. Will definitely recommend and would 1000% do again if ever back on Oahu! Mahalo!

My wife and I were visiting our son who is stationed at MCBH. We booked the shark cage trip and had an amazing time. The team made us feel like family. The photographer was awesome and very informative. The 3 of us all agreed this is a 5 Star event.

This was a great experience! The boat ride was quick and easy and we got plenty of large Galapagos sharks to watch from the cage. I felt very safe the while time. Sharks are magnificent creatures!
