Shark Dive Maui

Experience Maui's only shark diving activity!

Thousands of visitors travel to Hawai‘i every year to experience the colorful coral reefs, abundant sea life, and uniqueness of the islands’ marine animals. There are also many different species of sharks living in Hawai‘i’s waters, and SCUBA divers seldom encounter them.

Through Shark Dive Maui®, you’ll have the chance to encounter up to five species of sharks including sandbar sharks, blacktip reef sharks, whitetip reef sharks, grey reef sharks, and on most occasions a tiger shark*. This cage-free, immersive experience highlights the significance of sharks in the Hawaiian culture and marine ecosystem.

The diver’s friends and family can also watch the entire adventure from the exhibit’s viewing area and a 54-foot-long acrylic walk-through tunnel.

*Due to the constant rotation of animals back to the ocean, the presence of any specific animal cannot be guaranteed.
