Honolulu Shark Attack is a 2013 SyFy Channel original movie.


It is Spring Break and Honolulu's famous Waikiki Beach is crowded with wild and crazy college students from all over the U.S. But what they do not know is that an underwater volcanic eruption several hundred miles away has unleashed a swarm of prehistoric sharks long thought to be extinct... and they are heading directly for Hawaii. A team of marine biologists find out about the swarm and team up with the Honolulu Police Department to evacuate the beaches, but their warnings fall on deaf ears. As the swarm attacks and the death toll quickly rises, it is up to the marine biologists to drive away the swarm using a sonar weapon.
