Activity Overview

If you’re looking for a shark cage tour for small groups in Oahu, Haleiwa Shark Tours is your best bet. These adventures will bring guests from Oahu’s North Shore to the Pacific Ocean, where they will be able to witness a variety of marine species. If you’re brave enough, you can put on a mask and enter a shark cage, where you can enjoy an up-close encounter with these majestic predators. You’ll never have to wait in line to go into the cage because only a maximum of 12 passengers are allowed at a time.

From Haleiwa, Small Boat Harbor set sail on a power catamaran for a journey into the mystical world of sacred sharks, referred to by locals as mano. Your tour’s captain and crew are experienced watermen who grew up on the North Shore and are well-versed with the area’s fauna.

As a revered and culturally relevant apex predator, the mano is something we wish to share about with both tourists and locals. Sharks are a vital part of Hawaii’s ecosystem because they remove diseased, wounded, and dead animals from the water, ensuring healthy biodiversity. Sharks are considered to be an “aumakua” in Hawaiian mythology, which refers to an immortalized ancestor or family god who has been reborn as a shark. It’s not uncommon in Hawaiian folklore to find tales about sharks serving as heroes, protecting and guiding their human relatives.

Come face-to-face with these incredible creatures! As part of this fascinating and educational shark cage dive, you’ll learn about these amazing creatures’ importance in Hawaiian culture and folklore. On the way to the diving location, you might get the chance to see marine species such as dolphins, sea turtles, or even humpback whales, depending on when you go. Taking a Haleiwa Shark Tour will be one of the highlights of your Hawaii trip!
