View local sharks from a special location three miles offshore, where sharks are regularly sighted. Learn about the vital role that sharks play in Hawaii and Pacific Ocean ecology.



Overview:



At 8 a.m., the SemiSub departs for a special location three miles offshore, where sharks are regularly sighted. Once positioned, the vessel partially submerges and guests are escorted into special underwater pods for approximately 20 minutes of viewing time. Guests are welcome to take photos and video of the sharks and other underwater marine life while learning of the vital role that sharks play in Hawaii and Pacific Ocean ecology. Sharks are also important in ancient Hawaiian religion and culture, and our staff shares legends of the highly respected mano. When not in one of the special viewing pods, guests relax on deck in comfortable captain-style chairs and enjoy a delicious meal prepared by world-renowned Chef Chai. A special video showcases the beautiful world beneath our ocean’s surface and the key role played by our precious reefs. Of course, the view of one of our planet’s most beautiful coasts provides marvelous photo opportunities … and memories for a lifetime.
