Sharks Cove Oahu

Shark's Cove is a wonderful section of the coral reef located at the  Pupukea Beach Park on the North Shore  of Oahu.  

Here a large variety of marine life can be seen in their natural habitat.  

The reef can best be accessed during calm seas usually between the months of March through October.Sharks Cove Oahu2

As the name implies,  a few white tipped reef sharks call this cove home.  These sharks are known to be non-aggressive but will react if approached.  Sharks Cove Oahu3

Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles  and multiple varieties of reef fish are also be seen in this cove.Sharks Cove Oahu4

This is a wonderful beach for swimming, sunbathing, and snorkeling are also excellent activities to do.  There are no lifeguards so swim at your own risk.   Wear shoes at all times due to the sharp coral and rock formations.

Free parking in front of the cove....follow the footpath from the beach park to the reef.  Rest rooms and showers are also available.

CAUTION:  During the winter waves can reach  upwards to 40-50 foot on the north shore. They pound on the rocks surrounding the cove. If you observe large surf, DO NOT venture to the outer rocks and never turn your back to the ocean while in the cove. The waves are constantly changing and you can never predict their next move.
