My husband and I had an amazing time with the Shark Encounter team! The sharks weren't aggressive and really had no interest in us or the cage. They just swam peacefully around the boat letting us take awesome pictures. Definitely something I would do again...More

This was a very fun and educational experience. I highly recommend it to anyone who is fearful or weary of sharks. This experience clearly shows how sharks are not out to hunt humans. Bring your go pro!

It was a great trip. Came out in the early morning and watched the sunrise along the North Shore. The trip out to the dive spot was short and cathartic; being out in the open ocean on a beautiful day. Our guides were extremely knowledgeable,...More

My 10 year old son and husband wanted to go shark diving during our trip to Hawaii. This was an awesome experience. The crew was awesome and the boat only could hold 15 people so it wasn't packed like other tours we saw out there....More

Great time. Three kids ranging in ages 12-17 enjoyed it as well. We went on the first run of the morning. Everything was on time and the crew was very friendly and informative.

A very early morning start for us to reach the North Shore allowed us time to anticipate the forthcoming adventure. The location instructions were accurate and we were welcomed aboard our vessel in time for the first trip of the day. Safety briefing and factual...More

They do offer transportation, but it was really expensive (sorry, I don't remember the price). It was just cheaper for us to rent a car (there were two couples) so we could enjoy the other side of the island at our own pace.
