The present study focus on the wave-structure interaction of a caisson type offshore intake well with the regular waves. A 1:20 scale model is experimentally investigated with and without curtain wall in the shallow wave basin for its hydrodynamic responses like wave run-up, rundown, and free surface water oscillation inside the well. The wave run-up and rundown on all the faces record maximum when the scattering parameter (ka) is minimum. Moreover, the increase in relative wave height (H/d) results in an increase in the run-up on the seaward and shoreward faces. Besides, the free surface oscillation at the inlet and pumping chambers measures maximum when ka is minimum, and the influence of H/d keeps on reducing when the ka approaches the maximum value. The insertion of the curtain wall reduces the free surface oscillation at the pumping chamber when the relative water depth (d/L) ranges from 0.21 to 0.36.
