Considering it’s been just days since “Shark Week” on the Discovery channel, we thought it was a good time to bring up shark diving for those who are interested in experiencing Hawaii’s underwater world. Hopefully you’ve already booked one of our Maui condo rentals at Honua Kai’s Finest, and now you’re making a list of all the things you want to do once you start vacationing on Maui!

If you’re a certified scuba diver you won’t want to miss an opportunity to swim with the sharks (and other ocean life) at the Maui Ocean Center – in a safe way, of course. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings are when you can enjoy shark diving, where there’s no telling what species you’ll see after hopping into the 750,000 gallon Open Ocean exhibit. Some of the possibilities include whitetip, blacktip, or grey reef sharks, hammerhead and tiger sharks, a spotted eagle ray, sandbar shark, and broad stingray. This is one of the most exciting adventures for those passionate about ocean life, as you’ll see thousands of tropical reef fish of various species, and of course the sharks! You definitely don’t want to leave your underwater camera at home if you plan to engage in this spectacular activity.

As the only shark dive activity on Maui, it’s not only fun for certified divers but educational as well. Any family or friends coming along on vacation with you can enjoy your experience as they watch from the walk-through tunnel and viewing area!

Packages range in price from $199 to $259.50, depending on what’s included in the package. The most expensive includes weights and air tank, rental of regulator and BCD, two one-day Journey Passes, wetsuits, a mask, fins, the whole works! If you do intend to go shark diving, bring along your SCUBA certification, as you have to present proof you’re certified – also you must be 12 years old or older.

You can learn all you need to know at the Maui Ocean Center shark dive page, plus get answers to most frequently asked questions and more.
