Everyone knows that the first thing to do when seeing a shark in the water is to get to land safety. But some people do their best to combat human instincts to experience things that the rest have not had the opportunity. Swimming or diving with sharks is one of those experiences. In fact, more and more people are taking a keen interest in finding the most beautiful dive sites in the world to try their luck at swimming with sharks.

If you are one of those thrill-seekers, the you should head to Haleiwa on the North Shore where boat charters head for the deep blue. You can get into protective metal cage and drop into the ocean for eye-to-eye views of cruising grey reef sharks, sandbar sharks, and hammerheads.
