It’s a great place to sit on the sand and hang out with friends and family. The little pools and shallow swim area closest to the beach is best for everyone. I’ve seen way too much tourists try and walk along the rocky and sharp...More
Right off the highway you’ll wind down one of several trails to get into sharks cove. Things to bring with you before you get that far. 1. Snorkel gear, preferably with the one way valve at the top so you can focus on looking for...More
Incredible snorkeling once you get in the water, but the water entry itself is super rocky and slippery. No beach at all here, so not a place to go if you want to lounge as well. Preferred nearby Three Tables overall, but still definitely worth...More
Got here late afternoon ie 3.30-4pm
It was low tide and water murky because of all the previous people's activity. Further inside and towards the right it was clear water. Also further to the very right where the open ocean comes in, that's where you...More
Sharks cove is the best snorkeling place in North Shore. My daughter 7 y/o and husband loved it so much. They couldn't get enough of all those school of fishes that they saw. Just careful, because the current and waves might be too strong and...More
I’m not a huge fan of Sharks Cove... but there are some things you can do to improve the experience, in my opinion. First of all, there’s not really a beach. You’ll need to navigate your way down some very sharp rocks to get to...More
We went to Sharks Cove multiple times during our trip to Oahu. It is very easy to find and we always found on street parking fairly quickly. There are several food trucks and a surf shop right across the street which makes it a convenient...More
I’ve snorkeled all over the Caribbean and none of those spots rivals Shark Cove. I brought my own full face mask snorkel that I bought on Amazon but you can either buy or rent one there. Don’t get talked into a tour though. It is...More
We snorkelled Lanikai, Hanuama Bay and Three Tables during 10 days on Oahu. Sharks Cover was the clear winner. Visibility was exceptional, there were dozens of different species of fish, and it was not at all busy compared to some of the other places. Granted,...More

I know this late for your questions but I think they are really good ones so of course I think they should be addressed. As far as wave and water conditions they are calm though there are swells in November. There are several websites that address wave conditions. As for the name and whether it is safe for little ones, the name is nothing to worry about. There are no sharks. The water is very shallow, warm and sandy. We had the babies in the water at six months.
