See the island like you’ve never seen it before.
Adventure awaits you on the Island Tour. We explore and photograph O’ahu’s natural beauty, wildlife and sites of historic and cultural significance.
This is the “No-Rush” day tour. We photograph sweeping coastal vistas, pristine beaches, sacred heiaus, flowing waterfalls, dramatic mountain valleys, the spiritual center of O’ahu, and in the winter…fearless surfers.
We have secured a new secret location that no other tour has access to. In addition to going to off-the-beaten path locations we talk about Hawaii’s history and culture…this is a full island tour and photo tour combined.
You have a good chance to see and photograph the Hawaiian Monk Seal or Green Sea Turtle along the way. We are volunteers for Malama na Honu at Lanikea Beach where we monitor the turtles as they come on the beach, educate the public about the turtles, and protect them.
In addition to going to off-the-beaten path locations we talk about Hawaii’s history and culture…this is a full island tour and photo tour combined.
We stop for lunch – a taste of local flavors on North Shore. ( Lunch not included in tour price )

What People Say About Us
A fantastic way to see the island even if you aren’t a photographer
My husband and I did this tour today to the north shore of Oahu and we had a wonderful time. Marie was extremely knowledgeable on both photography as well as the island and it’s history.
We booked this tour at short notice and Marie couldn’t have been more helpful or professional in providing assistance even down to camera rental.
This is one of the best tours we have ever done. We learnt a lot about photography and the island as well as having a thoroughly enjoyable day. There were only five people on our tour and everyone received personal input from Marie, regardless of their camera type or level of expertise. Transport was comfortable and the tour was well timed.
I would recommend this tour without hesitation and would have loved to have had enough time in Hawaii to do a sunrise and sunset tour. – Everitt, Australia
“One of the best ways of seeing Oahu and fun”
Very good spots to take photos and Marie was very good at helping everyone on the tour get the very best photos. She is a very good Photographer. She gave very good advise on how to improve my photo taking. Marie also took us to places most tourists don’t get a chance to see. This tour was the highlight of my vacation in Hawaii. – Bill, Canada
