Intentionally swimming with sharks is not everyone’s idea of a great week but it’s been on my bucket list for a long time. I never did this activity when I was based on Oahu as it can be a bit expensive, but times have changed and now I had the entire trip comped as a collaboration with GetYourGuide. I first did the shark cage experience and then two days later, went beyond the bars for a free-diving experience with Galapagos and Sandbar Sharks with One Ocean Diving.
I wrote detailed articles about each experience, which I’ll link below and also a comparison article so that you can choose which tour might be best for you. I expected the free-diving tour to far surpassing the cage experience but honestly, they were both awesome in their own ways.
