Despite the name Sharks cove is not inhabited by sharks. It is named after a rock formation that resembles a shark and is one of the most popular dive site on the North Shore.
During the winter months high surf conditions make this and other North Shore dive sites inaccessible. During the calm summer months this is a great site for divers from beginners to advanced.
This site has easy access from shore and is a great spot for snorkeling. Advanced divers will enjoy the interesting system of caves just on the right outside edge of the cove. Although fascinating these caves can be potentially dangerous even in mild current conditions and should not be attempted without a experienced guide that knows them well.
