Pelagic Shark Experience – One Ocean Diving
The “Pelagic Shark Program” Also known as the “Pelagic Animal Research and Interaction Program” or what some people simply refer to as: “The snorkel with sharks without a cage.” Is an extensively developed program based on shark behavioral research and data collection integrating educational information adapted for the general public to utilize in order to reduce or avoid adverse shark interactions.
The Pelagic Shark Program starts when you board the One Ocean Diving research and dive vessel, “Pono Kai.” You’ll board the 27ft white vessel with a blue canopy at the commercial loading zone of Haleiwa Harbor (closest area to Haleiwa Joes Restaurant) near the white scaffolding/fish scale.
Once you come back on board you will likely have a completely different view of sharks, a realistic perspective and most likely a calmness and excitement about just how incredible they are. You will get to see for yourself that they do not look at humans as a natural prey item and you’ll get to see just how beautiful they are for yourself.
