H2o Adventures Hawaii Shark Cage Tours. Snorkel Dive Sharks, Whales, Dolphins, Turtles guided by professionals Captain, Divemaster, Marine Biologist! Underwater Photography and Video, Haleiwa, North Shore Oahu, Hawaii! No Scuba experience required.
H2o Adventures Hawaii is honored to be your guide and to introduce you to the magnificent inhabitants of these North Shore ocean waters, the various species of sharks, whales and dolphins! You can choose to see sharks from inside the shark cage or you can experience the pelagic open water free dive without the cage! Our Captains and crew members are professionals and include a Divemaster, Marine Biologist & Dive Instructor, with years of specific North Shore expertise with the local marine life. When you come out with our crew you will feel fulfilled beyond your expectations, educated in the ecology, behavior, and conservation of the sea life and the local Hawaiian traditions that honor them. We encourage both underwater and top-side photography as you will see the island of Oahu's scenic Waianae Mountain Range, the famed Kaena Point, the surrounding Haleiwa area including Waimea Bay and all the way North to Turtle Bay from out on the ocean during the 3 mile trip to and from the dive site!
The underwater photo and video opportunity is spectacular in the crystal clear 600' deep blue ocean water! In the fall, winter and early spring months during whale season you will see the Humpback Whales and hear their
unique whale songs. The protected Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles are a daily sight along with the occasional Monk Seal, Manta or Sting Ray sighting, and many varieties of sea birds including Boobies, Iwa (Frigate bird) and the giant Albatross!
But you are here to see Sharks and the Sharks are here for you! We look forward to you meeting them, learning more than you ever imagined and leaving with a new found love and a calm respect for these
most beautiful apex predators of the sea!
scuba diving or snorkeling experience is NOT required, our Divemaster and Instructor will teach you the skills you need to enjoy your experience and feel comfortable while snorkeling in the water. We've got you covered and your safety and comfort is in our capable hands!
Hawaii has long been a favorite destination for scuba
Diving, with its tropical climate, year round diving in warm, clear water and with the abundance of marine life that dwell in the colorful coral reefs, diving here is appealing to everyone.
Pelagic dives are different in that all you need is snorkel equipment and you will be snorkeling at the surface of ocean water of deeper depths, where the Pelagic sea life dwell. On a Pelagic dive you are likely to encounter sharks, whales during the whale season, dolphin, barracuda, mahi mahi, tuna or any other type of marine life typically known to be "pelagic". This is an underwater photographer's dream and an item on any adventure seeker's bucket list!
Education is an extremely important part of our dive, that's why you will be accompanied by a Divemaster, a Marine Biologist and a Certified Underwater Naturalist. These highly trained professionals are experts in marine life identification, behavior, and will also explain conservation efforts in effect and legislation passed to help protect endangered species. You will come away with so much more than just bragging rights to say "I dove with the sharks or whales"! You will gain knowledge and some great photos and videos too!
Starting at the dock when you board the dive boat and during the 3 mile trip out to dive site you will be briefed on what to expect from your shark cage tour or your pelagic free dive beginning with a safety briefing from your Captain. Your Divemaster will give you a demonstration of the equipment and Marine Biologist will further explain with visual aides, photos and graphics about the nature and identification of the sea life and answer any questions that you may have. Once at the dive site you will enter the shark cage, or if on the pelagic free dive, the Divemaster will enter the water first, then call the divers in after an evaluation of the site. This is where the real fun begins! Get your cameras ready! Whether you're using a hand held GoPro, a $150,000 professional underwater setup like our friend, Emmy Award winning Andy Brandy Casagrande who H2o Adventures Hawaii had the honor of working with on Discovery Channel Shark Week 2014, or even a $20 disposal underwater camera, you may just get the shot of your lifetime!
But whats it REALLY like to free dive in the open ocean with SHARKS?! Well, the thing we hear the most from people is "That was the best thing I've EVER done!". At first you may feel an adrenalin rush, this is normal, but once in the water for just a few moments you'll be absorbed by the calm, quiet deep blue water. You might feel like "one of them"... as accepting of the sharks as they are of you. As you check them out they are curious about
you too and will often make direct eye contact with you and your camera! Our tours are intimate with a maximum of only six divers per tour. You should feel very calm, confident and in awe of the beauty of the wild animals that you swim freely with! We ask that you please do not touch the sharks or try to hitch a ride on their dorsal fin. We believe in showing the utmost respect to these majestic creatures of the sea, as they so deserve!
