    Oahu
    Stop: 5 hours -
    This unique, 5-hour photo tour begins in Waikiki with a hotel pickup in a spacious, air-conditioned van. The sunrise tour departs from the hotel an hour before the sun comes up, then a drive to a spectacular beach for a breathtaking view of the sun at dawn as it appears on the horizon with splashing waves and tide pools. After sunrise we stop for a quick breakfast and continue our tour stopping at 5-6 different locations around the east side of the Oahu. Learn how to use light, and discover what framing, shutter speed, focal points and other important topics mean to composing a great image. Then explore the best places — and find the best angles — in which to take pictures on this breathtaking island. It’s the best of both worlds: a tour with an experienced local guide who shares their knowledge of the Hawaiian history and culture and a mini photo lesson with some of the most beautiful scenery in the world for a postcard-perfect sunrise. Along the way, learn about Hawaii’s history, its wildlife and the geography from the naturalist guide who is not only an expert in photography, but also a Hawaii insider with an in-depth knowledge of the island of Oahu. This photography tour is suitable for all skill levels — from beginners to advanced shooters, using everything from smartphones to high-end DSLR cameras. At the end of the tour, walk away with some incredible sunrise images, an abundance of professional photography tips that will last a lifetime and an appreciation of Oahu’s rich history and culture. This photography tour ends with a hotel drop-off in Waikiki.

I was in Honolulu on business and had one day to see the island before my redeye flight out. Blue Hawaii Photo Tours was recommended by a coworker. I'm not a photographer and was a little skeptical - but I was so glad I went! There were only 4 on our Sunrise Tour. Our guide

Aloha, It was a pleasure taking you on tour and talking photography. We have many tips and tricks for DSLR users as well as phone photographers. I'm thrilled I could help you rediscover your love for your DSLR, that is one of the most rewarding aspects of being a guide. Come visit us again for our sunrise, sunset, or island photography tours.

My sunrise tour got cancelled due to not enough people signing up. While I read the terms and conditions that there is a minimum number of persons to sign up before the tour can be scheduled, it also was advertised that they seldom have to cancel except for weather related

Aloha Anthea, Sorry you feel this way.Especially since you were aware that there might be a cancellation based on minimum people signed up. This is a common business practice all over the world and especially here in Hawaii. The tour was not cancelled at the last minute. Actually you were contacted 24 hours before the tour was to start and offered 4 options - one was to join another tour that was leaving that day at a different time, second was a private tour the following day, third the same tour the following day or a 100% refund. Since you were only staying in Waikiki overnight for half a day it was difficult to accommdate you. Most people who come to the islands stay for more than half a day.
