Fantastic experience - best thing we did on Oahu. Darren, Eric, and Craig were an excellent knowledgeable crew. We got plenty of time in the cage. Saw over a dozen large Galapagos sharks ranging from 8-14 feet long and several other fish. Clear blue water with incredible visibility. Unbelievable experience. Already looking at doing it again!

I highly recommend shark cage diving with Hawaii Shark Encounters! During my time in the water, I think I saw between 3-5 sharks! Dave and Eric were knowledgeable, funny, and helpful. Customer service was great too when I informed them I was running a few minutes late. For anyone who experiences motion sickness, make sure to take Dramamine! Even though I took one, I still felt sea sick, but Dave and Eric gave great advice on how to feel a little better.

This excursion was by far the best one we did while in Oahu. We went on the 6AM boat. We had to check in at 5:30AM. The Captain was already there and checked us in quickly. We left the harbor on time at 6am. The crew was fantastic. We felt safe the entire trip. Smooth water and a beautiful sunrise made for good pictures while getting to the spot. They explained how we get in and out of the cage. The snorkel gear was great. There was 5 of us in the cage together which had plenty of room to move around. We saw a lot of sharks. The water was clear and so easy to see them swimming around. Definitely not like the movies with the sharks biting the cage so don't worry about that happening. But they did swim close which was fantastic. We even saw a tiger shark. We will be doing this excursion again, hands down the best time we had. The crew was so friendly and knowledgeable. They really made the trip enjoyable.

Captain Dave was great. He is passionate about sharks and makes everyone feel comfortable with his kind way. The crew was approachable and good at what they do. We were quick to the spot with sharks as guaranteed. Truly a special 5 star experience to witness one of the oceans special creatures. I recommend the early time slot b/c water was calm. Best for people who may get motion sick. Just a 20 min to location.

Boat crew not very engaging. Conversations are brief. Snorkel gear falling apart. Mouth pieces chewed through. Would be nice to offer a snack like pretzels after the dive to aid with motion sickness. Instead captain handed out tic tacs.
Was looking for a more engaging experience.

Aloha Shark divers, We apologize if the tour was not as engaging as you had hoped that is very unlike our crew, as you can see from 95% of our other reviews. We will look into it and make changes to better the crew engagement. We go through the snorkel gear every time it is used to disinfect and inspect them we apologize if a broken mouthpiece slipped past us. Mint, and mint Tic-tacs are known to help ease seasickness that is the main reason we have them onboard. Unfortunately we do not have the facilities to stock other snacks. We hope to be able to show you the 5 star experience our guests receive and deserve. Please allow us to extend 20% off your next dive with reference to this review. Mahalo.

I can’t say enough about how fantastic of an experience this was for our entire family!! The crew was friendly and knowledgeable and obviously loved these sharks! We took the first trip out—6:30am check in but it was well worth the early wake up. I would recommend this adventure for anyone with a love for sharks and especially for those who only know what they see in movies—the sharks and the crew will turn you into a shark advocate!!
