About Us


Joe Pavsek has a life-long attachment to the sea. He has surfed and dove in the Haleiwa area for over 30 years. He's had a diving boat in Haleiwa Harbor since 1975. He has worked on aircraft salvage recovery in Hawaiian waters. He was featured on television's "Let's Go Fishing" numerous times. North Shore Shark Adventures was developed by Joe at the suggestion of his friends whom he would take out to view sharks while fishing and diving.


Whale Encounters Hawaii

We have been operating out of Haleiwa Harbor for over a decade, and have safely taken hundreds of thousands of people out to experience the beauty and splendor of swimming with the sharks.
