We don’t like to brag, but there’s a reason why our Circle Island Sunrise Photo Tour is the most popular among creatives and adventurers alike: There are no other tours that guide you through such an abundance of breathtaking views.

We guide you through an adventurous 10-hour circuit of Oahu. You get to photograph and experience ancient natural beauty, cultural hubs, Hawaiian wildlife, and a peaceful temple shrine. The time flies when you’re having this much fun!

From sunrise on the east side of Oahu to the iconic North Shore, our Circle Island Sunrise Tour brings you through enchanting locations like Makapu’u Beach Lookout, Waimanalo Bay, extinct volcanoes, century-old marketplaces, lush forests, and hidden nature spots. One of our last stops is searching for turtles in the summer or daredevil surfers in the winter.

Capture great content, have fun, and become an expert on the rich diversity and beauty that Oahu has to offer! Create beautiful memories to cherish as well as personal keepsakes from your trip.

Circle Island Sunrise Full Day Adventure

From a professional photographers point of view, I found the Circle Island Sunrise Full Day Adventure an awesome photo tour. Our tour guide Mac was very knowledgeable with photography tip and most importantly he knew all the best locations to shoot at and the best times to be there. Most of the locations we stopped at would be a challenge for visitors to find on their own and a few of the secret spots would have been impossible to find. The pace of the tour was very relaxed and unrushed. We even had time to take several snack breaks and a lunch break.Throughout the tour Mac provided a lot of information on the island locations, events, people and history. At the end of the day I had over 1000 images from the 20 locations we visited. It was a great experience and I plan to revisit and take some of the other tours they offer and bring a few friends as well. Thank you Mac.

Highlight of my trip!

I did the Sunrise Circle Island full day tour with De-Jay on 7th September 2019. Was picked up promptly for a very early start. There were 3 of us (solo travellers) and De-Jay was very accommodating and flexible throughout the day. He took us to some beautiful places, had some amazing food at places he recommended and showed me features on my phone camera which I never knew existed! This helped me immensely for the rest of my trip throughout the US, especially with taking full pictures of the skyscrapers and bridges in New York. Overall had an amazing day and thank you for all the tips and laughs De-Jay. Highly recommend the tour for anyone visiting Oahu.
