The Beauty of Shark’s Cove

As the winter season ends, surfers pack their bags and head home. The swell has passed. Great diving conditions are here to stay on the North Shore! The place to be is Sharks Cove. Summer is the best time to scuba dive on O’ahu’s North Shore. Hawaii Eco Divers is Haleiwa’s local dive shop with the most expert tours on the island. 

Shark’s Cove was named in honor of the butcher who lived across the street. When he would throw old meat into the water, the place would fill up with sharks. Shark predation and overfishing left the area desolate. Scuba divers on the North Shore loved the place so much for its caves and magical essence that they petitioned a bill. The bill became a law and the Pupukea Marine Life Conservation District has become more beautiful each year since 1983. 

Sharks Cove is known internationally as one of the best dive sites in North America. Here you can watch light seep into water through lava caves and tubes. The topography, colorful coral and variety of fish bring divers from all over the world to Pupukea Marine Life Conservation District. We also offer tours of Waimea Bay and Three Tables. Come explore caves and cross your fingers for some turtles with us this summer!
