My family and I could not be more pleased with our whale watching tour. The captain drove the boat super smooth, and went out of his way to make sure we all had an amazing time. He knew right where to go to make sure we saw tons of whales. An absolutely magic experience in such a beautiful place. Thank you so much guys!!!!!

Over the last few years I’ve been on almost all the shark tour companies on north shore and this one has by far been my favorite! They give the most time in the water with the sharks and also have an extremely friendly crew. Very helpful and I felt safe the whole time in the water. We even saw a huge tiger shark which was epic! 10/10 recommend, I’ll be back

I recently had an incredible cage-less shark diving experience with Hawaii Ocean Adventure Tours and it exceeded all expectations. The conditions were simply amazing! Crystal-clear waters, vibrant marine life, and an exhilarating sense of freedom. The crew's friendliness and expertise made the adventure even more enjoyable, ensuring a safe and memorable encounter with these magnificent creatures. Highly recommend for thrill-seekers and nature enthusiasts alike! Shout out Casey for being a phenomenal captain, Lily for being an amazing safety diver, and Cullie for getting all the best underwater shots!

Our group booked a 2 hour dive for 6 this morning. Got to see lots of sharks up close. The crew and camera man were awesome and so helpful. Boarded at 0800 and was back on the dock at 0930. Would have been great to spend a bit more time in the water. Great experience, nonetheless .

Thank you so much for working with T&T/MWR to make this experience more affordable for military families- the pelagic (cage-free) shark swim was amazing!!! Even if you are a bit apprehensive or don't have tons of snorkeling experience, Captain Ryan and the crew will give you all the gear and info you will need to have a great time visiting these creatures' natural habitat. Highly recommend!

I recently went on a shark diving excursion with Hawaii Ocean Adventure Tours, and it was nothing short of amazing! The entire experience was top-notch, from the moment we boarded the boat to the thrilling moment we descended into the crystal-clear waters with these majestic creatures. The guide Ryan was not only an expert in his field but also super friendly and attentive to safety. The up-close encounters with the sharks were surreal, and I left with memories and photos that will last a lifetime. I can't recommend Hawaii Ocean Adventure Tours enough for an unforgettable adventure! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Hawaii Ocean Adventure Tours, YOU ROCK!!!!!! First off, they could have cancelled or requested for us to reschedule due to low numbers. They kept schedule which we really appreciate since we had other activities booked for other days. They gave clear directions and made sure that we felt comfortable and what to expect. I had a couple of embarrassing moments (my doing), but the team acted like it was nothing and was happy to help any way possible. We did get to swim with four sharks that day and who does not want to brag about that. We cannot say how much we appreciated your professionalism and the overall trip. We would definitely encourage others to use your service.
