Capture the Beauty of O’ahu
Your tour begins with a magnificent sunrise on the Ko’olau side of the island. This tour brings together the Sunrise Tour’s first stop and the best of the Island Tour.
Our “No-Rush” full morning and day tour allows you plenty of time to photograph a few landmark sites along with the our hidden locations along the East and North Shore.
After photographing the Sunrise at a beach or cliffs near the ocean, we stop for a small quick breakfast before heading to the North Shore. Here we have a variety of locations with each one dramatically different from the rest. You get it all with this tour.
Later we stop for lunch on the North Shore.
We are local photographers and naturalists who love photography and sharing the hidden places no one else will take you to. As experienced photography teachers and guides we assist you with pro photo tips whether you are using a mobile phone, pocket camera or DSLR. Experienced photographers will appreciate all of our unique locations.

All the above Tour photos displayed were taken while on the Sunrise + Island Tour. However please keep in mind that we do change our locations to accommodate the season and the weather. We get you to the best spots possible for that particular day. We do get rain from time to time…usually it’s a sprinkle and then it’s gone but if we know that it will be raining the entire time…we will cancel the tour. We are committed to you capturing incredible photographs.

Having always been a want to be photographer, the chance to take pictures in one of the most beautiful places on the planet was too much for me to pass up. I visited Oahu during the Covid pandemic from 12/4/2020 through 12/14/2020 and while many businesses were closed due to lack of visitors. I found a photo tour with Blue Hawaii was available. I booked it and based on other tours I had booked was not certain it would even run due to not enough guests to make it worthwhile. To my surprise the evening before my tour, I got a text confirming the tour. It was from the owner, Marie, who said I was the only passenger that day, I immediately offered to reschedule so she would not have to do a full tour with only one person and likely lose money. But she insisted as she did not want to disappoint me. I added the sunrise photo tour to my island tour so that we could get a full day in and start early.

Remember me saying I am a 'want to be' photographer. Well, that is true. I have a Nikon D5300 that I basically use as a point and shoot with all auto settings. I have always wanted to have someone show me how to get the most out of it. This seemed like a good time, and it was.

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 professional camera, you can take some great photos with your phone camera. I do have a DSLR, but I am posting some phone photos.
