Nighttime Paddle Boarding off Waikiki Beach, Oahu

The company accepts children as young as three to swim in the underwater cage. We think that is too young, but it is obviously up to the families. Meanwhile, the family will see sharks ranging in size up to 4.5 meters. Should you not take the dive, you’ll be able to see the sharks swimming around under the boat.
