I’ve been on several shark dives in the past - almost all without cages. This experience was right up there with all the rest. Without a cage you really get to understand that, unlike Shark Week hype, sharks are not out to get us. You share the ocean and appreciate them as they go about their own business. We had up to 17 sharks in the vicinity on the my second trip, including Galapagos, Sandbar, and Scalloped Hammerheads. A couple would cruise by closer, but most seemed content to keep their distance. The team made both dives very informative as well as enjoyable. Their cameraman ensures that you’ll have pictures to share with family and friends. I used my GoPro, but still got the pictures they took as well. If I’m ever back on Oahu, I’ll book a couple more outings with them.

Born and raised in Hawaii, Kaiwi Berry grew up surfing, fishing & diving on the North Shore of Oahu. He comes from three generations of commercial fisherman and learned to swim in "Slip 36" of Haleiwa Harbor. He has spent most of his life as an avid surfer and was a well-known big wave surfer. Since 2007, Kaiwi has been a Honolulu City & County Lifeguard on the North Shore, guarding the famous beaches from Haleiwa to Sunset Beach. With years of experience with the North Shore’s powerful ocean currents and waves from his time as a professional surfer and vast knowledge about the history and legends of the area, Kaiwi is ultimate local tour guide to some of Oahu’s best kept secrets.

Without a question this is a 5 star experience. This is one of those moments in life you will never forget and will probably want ...to do again. The staff is very friendly and experienced and they have great respect for the ocean and its creatures. They gave us a safety briefing and explained what to expect with the sharks and what not do, first thing we heard was "keep all the negative associations with sharks at the shore, go in with an open mind". We got to swim around Sandbar & Galapagos sharks ranging from 5-10 feet, absolutely mind blowing. Some of them were curious and came close to us! It was a little scared first, but the guide kept us safe during the whole time. While we were enjoying that magical moment another crew member took great pictures of the encounter. Absolutely a must-do activity if you are in Hawaii. I would love to go out with the Islandview Hawaii crew again! more

This was an awesome experience. I had done the shark cage before, but I never thought that I'd be able to swim with the shar...ks without cage. I was a bit skeptical about the safety, but once I was in the water, I didn't feel threatened at all. It was just a calm and relaxing experience, and the sharks were not interested in humans at all. The sharks we saw were mostly Sandbar Sharks and Galapagos Sharks, and they only eat fish. They were more attracted to the sound/vibration of the boat engine. So the guide instructed us to stay away from the boat, and we stayed together as a group. We only have a group of 5 with 1 guide and 1 photographer in the water, so the experience was very intimate. I highly recommend this activity to anyone, and really observe the sharks in their environment. Forget about Shark Weeks, Jaws, etc., and go see them with their own eyes so you can cure people's misconception about these beautiful creatures. more

George

First time ever swimming with sharks and it was definitely one of the coolest experiences of my life. Naturally, I was pretty nerv...ous but the moment I stepped on the boat and met the owner/boat captain and his two employees I was immediately put at ease. They are all local guys who are extremely knowledgeable about sharks, told us what to expect, and gave very specific instructions. The owner said he has been doing this for 30 years. Plus, they were very kind and personable which added to the experience.The safety swimmer gets in the water before you and is with you the entire time. He will hold your hand if you are nervous. Sharks are misunderstood creatures so put your preconceived notions and fears about them aside and go on this adventure! You won't regret it! more

Amy Walter

The staff was so friendly and knowledgable! They made everyone feel safe, and provided pictures they took of everyone! An unforget...table experience, and I can't wait to go again!! more

Kelcie

This tour turns everything you think you knew about sharks completely on its head. After a short ride out from the harbor, you arr...ive at your snorkel site. You quickly and quietly get in the water (with no cage!) and voila, you are swimming with 5-8 foot sharks all around. This was a very professionally run and awesome adventure on the North Shore. Highly recommended to anyone with a sense of adventure. more

JLW

This was amazing! I am so glad we picked this as an activity! I would do this again if we ever make it back to Oahu. We saw sharks... from the minute we got out and they were around us the entire time. It was a little intimidating at first, but the guides were always watchful above and below the water so I felt as safe as you possible could be given the chosen activity. The only thing I would say could be better was finding what area you are suppose to be to board the boat, there are no signs for check in or really where you are suppose to be and I wish I would have taken my camera I wanted some pictures but felt the group rate was too high. I would recommend this to anyone! more

Meagen

An absolute must do. My wife did not want to go in, but through the reassurance of the guys she did and was happy she did. The c...rew was great. At first there is lots of anxiety and then it lessens. Swimming with those majestic animals is beyond words. It must be experience. Again thanks guys more

Jerry Herberger

Can't say enough about how awesome this was! Wish I could do it every day. Was quite nervous at first but once you get in the... water it is so calming to just watch the sharks in their world. The Island View guys were great, gave us all the info we needed before getting in and answered all of our questions. My only advice for the company is to give a bit more instruction on finding you at the harbor - all we really had was the name of the boat (which is outdated) and we can't exactly walk the whole place reading boat names. We found them eventually and all was well. If you have the time, this is absolutely a must-do in Oahu. You won't regret it. more

Shelby

We loved our experience! The instructors were professional, informative and made us feel safe. We were able to see several Galapag...os sharks and a barracuda even joined us at one point. And the whole experience was captured through pictures available for purchase afterwards. Overall, our group had an amazing experience and would definitely recommend to others! more

Taylor

This was a really great experience. Uncle Dave-the captain, Shane, and Rider all made the trip educationall, fun, and really put ...us all at ease. I was amazed at how many sharks we saw! This was one of the best experiences of my life! more

Jannette

What could be more exhilarating than interacting with an animal you have been taught all your life to fear? You have guides that t...ake total care of you, from safety briefing to taking pictures of your interaction. This was my second time and the thrill was just as impressive as was the first time. This experience should be the number one activity for any tourist on Oahu. We were with 7 sharks and one barracuda. The speed and agility of sharks must be experienced to be appreciated. Sharks are magnificent animals. Thanks again guys for the ultimate experience. more

Jerry Herberger

Outstanding experience with a wonderful crew and photographer! Explained everything clearly and ensure we had a safe enjoyable tim...e! Visibility was fantastic and sharks a beauty to observe! Going back if we can before we leave!! Highly recommend this team!! more

Colin & Jamie

Amazing! Saw 20+ sharks and got within inches of them. (90% were sand bar sharks with 2 hammerheads sprinkled in there). Defini...tely coming back! more

Such a wonderful, once in a lifetime experience with very calm and professional tour operators. Even took the time to capture the ...experience on camera and send all of the photos via email, free if charge. Only wish we had more time to go again!!!!!!!! more

Victoria

We had a blast! The instructors were great. You can't do anything about the people who panic in the water... Wish you could t...hough. more
