FAQ
Expand all
Will I get seasick?
  • If you are prone to motion sickness, yes you will. During the shark encounter, the boat is drifting with the engine off. Even on the calmest days, the boat never stops rocking. If you plan on taking something like Dramamine, read the instructions. It must be taken in advance. Fortunately, if you get sick, the tour is only two hours and land is an instant cure. Even those that get sick have a tremendous time.
Do I need experience with scuba diving or snorkeling to go inside the shark cage?
  • No! You only need to be able to climb down a short ladder and hang onto a handrail. We get many people that don't even know how to swim!
Can I go out on the boat, but not go inside the cage?
  • Absolutely! There is not a bad seat in the house. From the boat you can see the sharks swimming near or on the surface with their fins slicing through the water. Of course the best view is from inside the cage.
What kind of boat will be used?
  • A 32-foot long, ten-foot wide Radon built on the Big Island. This vessel is well known for its seaworthiness. Coast Guard certified to carry 18 passengers. Powered by a 450 HP Cummins Turbo Diesel Engine, she is a very reliable vessel with a top speed of over 20 Knots. Creature comforts include hot water shower and refreshments.

Even those that get sick have a tremendous time.
What if I have a great fear of sharks?
  • No problem. We have had many people on board that were terrified. Within a few minutes of being inside the cage you will be completely comfortable. We have seen it many times before. Seeing these magnificent creatures and how they behave will change your attitude and ease your fears forever.
Is there a money back guarantee?
  • Yes, if you don't see sharks, you don't pay!
Are there photo or video services available on board?
  • Yes, GoPro rentals are available for $50 per rental and includes an SD card with a collection of digital photos from your tour.

    There are also one time use underwater cameras for sale and a Shark DVD (previous tour footage) that shows the whole experience plus a selection of the best shark images.
Is there anything else to do in the area for those in my party that are not going on the boat?
  • Absolutely. The harbor is surrounded by beautiful public beaches. The harbor is located within walking distance of lots of great shops and site seeing in Haleiwa town
