What you'll do

SWIM WITH SHARKS aboard the Mo'o with the original shark boat crew. Enjoy a once in a lifetime experience as you swim freely in the deep blue ocean with sharks and other pelagic creatures. The cage-free excursion will allow you to see how sharks behave in their natural state and dispel many misconceptions about these beautiful creatures. Don't worry! This is a completely safe experience.

A safety diver will escort you into the water where you will be able to safely watch as well as interact with sharks, dolphins, whales and other pelagic creatures. With nearly 40 species of sharks in the waters around the Hawaiian Islands, you'll gain a deeper understanding of the ocean and its inhabitants - disposing of the irrational fears of sharks and other ocean creatures.

We pride ourselves on providing a comfortable experience with a small group of passengers (up to 6 people) to maximize water time in a secluded environment. As we enjoy our time amongst different species of sea life, our goal is to remain safe, respectful, and calm.

Hi I'm Kaiwi and welcome to the North Shore of Oahu! We are a family owned and operated pelagic dive tour from Haleiwa, HI. Our ancestors pioneered the Shark Tours in HI to teach respect for our culture, the ocean, and its inhabitants. Here at Islandview Hawai'i, we continue to share this knowledge to educate future generations and protect the ocean we love.

We have teamed up with the WSL to spread ocean and marine wildlife awareness - especially with the beautiful sharks that we share the ocean with. This is a truly unique opportunity to safely learn, observe, and swim with Sharks.

I am so grateful that I booked this tour with these guys! They were absolutely amazing :) I had so many questions even before booking the trip, and they were so patient with answering all of my queries! They were so friendly throughout and attempted to connect with their guests. I have been on several diving and snorkeling trips, and I have very rarely met people like them :) Safety is a priority, and they ensure their guests feel comfortable in the water. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to experience being in the presence of sharks in their environment, sustainably :) I know I'm coming back for sure! ^_^

Highly Recommend this to any one that wants something amazing to experience. At first, My friends and I were skeptical about swimming with sharks. After doing it we left feeling amazed. This is a 10/10 experience that every one needs to do!

This was amazing! Despite me getting a bit sea sick we saw a ton of sharks. I was a bit nervous- but I had a ton of fun and can take back amazing memories. I immediately posted it on social media and all my friends want to do this now (or call me crazy) Thanks!

Unreal experience. If you’re on the fence about doing this, jump off that fence. Swimming with sharks in open water was easily one of the coolest experiences of my life so far. Felt safe the whole time.

This was one of the highlights of my trip. If you haven't done anything like it, I highly recommend it. The crew was really pleasant and personable.

Diving with Island View was something I’ve been wanting to do since I last came to Hawaii about 5yrs ago and it didn’t disappoint. Kamu, Justin and Ryder were really knowledgeable and friendly, and put everyone at ease before we got in the water. We got to see humpbacks on the way out and could hear them singing underwater when we where diving with the sharks. Unforgettable experience and I highly recommend.
