    Oahu
    Stop: 8 hours -
    This unique, 8.5-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 numerous locations around the entire island of 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 did the Sunrise plus Island Tour and this is a great way to see Hawaii, especially if you don’t have a car. There were only 4 people in our tour group which was perfect, and our tour guide Patti was knowledgeable both about the island and photography. You don’t need a

Taking a tour with Blue Hawaii Photo Tours is a ‘must do’ whenever I pay a visit to the islands. This is the third tour I’ve taken over the years and it was every bit as good as I’ve experienced before. Marie and the others really take the time to adapt to the make up of the

Aloha, Oahu is quite a different place outside of Waikiki. We love showing off our beloved island to guests. Andrea is a terrific guide who enjoys sharing her knowledge of Hawaii history and culture, as well as her favorite off-the-beaten-track locations. Visit us again soon! Mahalo, Marie

The sunrise and island tour was an amazing time for my wife and I. We experienced the tour on our first full day, which provided two benefits. 1) Due to the 5 hour time difference, it was a lot easier to get up for the sunrise tour and 2) Seeing the island on the first day

Aloha, We are thrilled you enjoyed the spectacular Hawaii sunrise as much as we do. Every day looks a little different. Mahalo for your great tips to future visitors, although being adjusted to local time doesn't stop us from getting excited for sunrise tours! Jason is an excellent photographer and a terrific guide. It is always a pleasure showing our guests beautiful locations off the beaten track. Mahalo, Marie
