    My fiance & I are looking into doing this tour while we're on our honey moon. Has anyone ever tried it? Here's the link:

    FI is sooooo excited & I have to admit, I'm pretty jazzed about it now, too!

      we did something like it in the DR. It was awesome. Only difference is we were not in a cage. In hindsight, we were kinda stupid for doing it but it was so crazy, exciting!
      My favorite type of vacation, a relaxing one!

        Wow - looks really interesting but scary!!! I wouldn't be able to drag DH to do this for anything! I can barely get him to jet ski in the ocean! Sounds great though - have fun!

          my fi would love this, he's obsessed with sharks but is also deathly afraid of them. He would love to watch them while in a safe metal cage. I could never do it, even with the cage. But i'm sure it's probably really exciting fun, i'm just a chicken.

            well then, we'll definitely take pictures. I think our camera also takes videos underwater. We're going to test it out soon to see if it works!

            Yeah, I need the cage around me.

            I wouldn't be comfortable doing this in open water.

                  We just confirmed out booking & they gave us the May discounted rate (even though we're going in September). $50 off per person. Sweet!!

                    Yea...I have done it! It was really windy the day we went out so almost weren't able to drop the cage but it was worth it! Not for the faint of heart though! Be sure to visit the little town of Haleiwa right near the shark tours. There is a burger/sandwhich joint called Kuaina that makes the best darn sandwichs I have ever tasted! We went everyday! For other beach wedding ideas try Beach Wedding Ideas found tonnes of cool stuff on there including my dress..from JCrew.
                    Have fun and report back how you found the North Shore!

                      My parents did this one year and they said it was an unbelievable experience! I have always wanted to try it. I say definitely go for it!
