Shark Encounters!

On Saturday morning, Josh and I got up super early to head up to the North shore to go shark diving in a cage. It has been on my list of things I wanted to do on Oahu for awhile now and on a whim on Friday, we decided to sign up for the 6:30 a.m. tour with Hawaiian Shark Encounters….and it was AMAZINGGGGG! We left from Haleiwa and traveled about four miles off the coast and saw about five or six Galapagos sharks that were about eight feet long. They were extremely curious about the boat and the cage and were fearless when it came to venturing close enough to see what was going on. The guide was telling us that there have been a few generations of Galapagos sharks in the area due to fishermen feeding them from their boat. It was an incredible experience and so amazing to be so close to them! Pictures and videos below! The waves were really big, so we got tossed around in the cage quite a bit. Once again, Josh had to be the photographer and videographer so I didn’t get sick all over him (and everyone else). We purchased a GoPro for the occasion and it was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made!
