Know More about this tour

Oahu Photography Tours offer a Beautiful Hawaii 5.5-hour photo tour, an accessible Hawaii tour option for individuals who prefer a later start in the day, shorter walks, and the opportunity to photograph majestic locations around our beautiful island of Oahu. This tour focuses on paying homage to the stunning blue ocean waters and expansive skies of the gathering place, our island home, Oahu!

At our first stop, we will go over your camera and make sure you are ready to capture the panoramic views from the lesser traveled Tantalus Lookout. Letting the mountain breeze and fresh air cool you off in the heat of the day, youll see from Diamond Head to Pearl Harbor from this great perch, and you might be able to spot out your hotel from up there!

Pali Lookout is next on the itinerary, which offers panoramic views of the sheer Koolau cliffs and lush windward coast. Fun fact: The name Pali means cliff in Hawaiian! Wait to until you see the height of this cliff! The Pali Lookout is also a site of profound historical significance. This lookout is where King Kamehameha successfully conquered Oahu under his rule, after winning the Battle of Nuuanu in 1795. While you photograph the sites, your guide will share the history of this location. Be sure to ask your guide about the painting by Herb Kane that depicts the intense battle of Nuuanu.

Now we pass through the Pali tunnels to the Windward side of Oahu where you will photograph the Koolau Mountains. You will understand why this mountain range is a Natural National Monument in the United States when you are face to face to this range. If you look close, you might see the white cattle Egret flying overhead, resembling a Jurassic Park scene.

Before lunch, we walk along Oahu Islands longest uninterrupted white-sand beach at Waimanalo Bay Beach Park. Lined with old growth Australian ironwood trees, youll adore the atmosphere made delicious by the elements of earth, sky, and water blending in a single photograph. This beach is one of the top stops with Oahu Photography Tours! Youll never want to leave, but we don't want you to miss our lunch stop.

Having worked up our appetites, we stop for lunch at Ono Steaks & Shrimp Truck which offers authentic Hawaiian specialties, such as locally caught fish that you can have grilled or in tacos, Kalua pork, and other delicious options.

We continue onwards a series of unforgettable Oahu attractions: Makapuu Beach Lookout, Halona Blow Hole Lookout, Sandy Beach, and Lanai Lookout where youll capture the stunning East Oahu sea cliffs and be left breathless from the unique beauty of it all.

For our final stop for the day will at Hanauma Bay, a protected marine life conservation area formed in 1967. Staring out at this 32,000-year-old circular-shaped late stage volcanic eruption, Hanauma Bay, your first instinct will be to reach for your camera, and we say go for it!

  • My husband and I really enjoyed this excursion. The description of the tour was that we would be taken to some scenic spots so we could have some beautiful photos and the tour guide would give us photo tips. We booked this excursion to see the scenery not to necessarily get great photos. Though we did get those too. There were only 5 of us on this trip. Our tour guide Galen was very helpful and informative. We made several stops. The first being up to the mountains overlooking Honolulu. We had a beautiful panoramic view of the city. We believe this was a great alternative to climbing up Diamond Head to get a look at Honolulu. We went to a beach that was pretty deserted but beautiful. We made several other stops as well as stopping at a small local restaurant in the middle of nowhere for lunch. I would give this excursion 5 stars except that while we were at our last stop our van was broken into while Galen was giving us photo tips. The van was locked but the vandals broke the window. One of the ladies had her purse stolen. So by the time we waited for the police to come and make a report, we unfortunately never got to our last intended stop.

  • Galen was an excellent tour guide and photographer. The tour took us to lovely places and gave us the time to take beautiful pictures without being rushed. He assisted us with whatever needs we had as photographers and took us to a local restaurant that had great food. I would recommend this tour whether you are just starting out and would like to learn some basics or a more seasoned photographer.

  • Alex our guide was amazing, he took us places we would never be able to find. The beauty of Ohau is breath taking and it reflects in our photos. Alex was very helpful with assisting us with our camera setting if you asked for help and very knowledgeable with the history of the island. We enjoyed ourselves so much we didn't want the day to end, Alex treated us like family.

  • Much more rewarding than a coach trip. There was just a small group of us and we had an excellent guide. Taken to several scenic spots mountain and coast and given plenty of time to take photos. Photography advice available if wanted. Nice lunch spot.

  • Excellent- had a great time and a chance to take some cool photos

  • Excellent!!! If you want to bring back beautiful memories back home with you, make sure you book this tour! Dee-Jay, our professional photographer tour guide was indeed amazing! He answered our photography questions and helped with even more! Very friendly AND very professional! He let us spend as much time or as much less time as we wanted on each stop we made each stop more beautiful than the next. Even lunch was amazing! I highly recommend this tour AND Dee-Jay as your guide! It was more of a personal experience than a group tour experience! We loved it and have not stopped talking about it!
