Just about everybody likes to be scared. Whether it’s watching a spooky movie or enjoying the thrills of a roller coaster or a spinning carnival ride, there’s something naturally exciting and life-affirming about being frightened half to death.

That’s one of the things that makes shark cage diving so much fun. But while it may seem as if you are taking your life in your hands by coming face to face with some of the sea’s most dangerous predators, in reality, shark cage diving is probably safer than most other thrill-inspiring activities.

Oahu Shark Cage Diving Hawaii — High Thrill, Low Risk

First of all, when you enjoy an Oahu shark cage diving adventure with Hawaii Eco Divers, you are completely protected from direct physical contact with man-eating sharks inside a shark-proof cage.

While these massive monsters of the sea can swim directly by you, it’s impossible for them to actually reach you.  As long as you keep your hands and feet inside the cage you are completely safe at all times.

Oahu Shark Cage Diving Hawaii — The Truth about Sharks

Another consideration is the sharks themselves. While we have been conditioned to fear being eaten by sharks through popular culture, including movies like “Jaws” and “The Deep”, the truth is that shark attacks on humans are actually relatively rare.

While sharks are definitely the apex predators of the sea, even the largest sharks — including the Great White Shark — usually will not attack humans unless they are provoked. Or they are very, very hungry.

Oahu shark cage diving lets you enjoy the adrenaline rush of being within inches of massive sharks’ powerful jaws and razor sharp teeth, proving you with the thrill of a lifetime. But like other types of thrills, you don’t actually have much to worry about. In reality, you are actually quite safe when you are inside the cage.
