Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Begin with pickup at your Waikiki hotel, and set out around the island to visit a series of five scenic locations with a small group of 7 people or fewer. Get tips on using the late afternoon light to your best advantage, and making the most of your camera settings, whether it’s a DSLR camera, point-and-shoot, or phone.

    Fix your camera onto a tripod and experiment with slower shutter speeds to capture the changing light. Snap images of coastline views, tropical valleys, and a picture-perfect waterfall, experiencing local places that are off the beaten path.

    Learn about Hawaiian history, wildlife, and geography from your guide as you shoot each location, then watch the island’s scenery light up as the sun sinks into the Pacific Ocean. On Friday nights during the summer, find the perfect vantage point to photograph the firework display over Waikiki. This tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

    This is the 2nd time I have booked Blue Hawaii Photo Tours and Marie didn't disappoint again. We actually did an all day tour starting with a tour of the island, Marie taking family pictures, and ending with the Sunset. My entire family had a great time and I would recommend

    Aloha Jay, Thank you for your review. I’m so sorry you were disappointed. You were notified 48 hours a head of time by email and phone that the guide was sick and the tour would be cancelled which is not a last minute cancellation for the small group Sunset tour you signed up for. When you get older and mature as an adult you’ll learn that these things do come up in life sometimes. All the best

We love it when our guests take home beautiful photos as well as new ideas for composition and camera settings. Next trip try our sunrise or full island tours and we will show you more! Marie

    Loved the sunset tour with Patti! We had a small group and each of us received individual attention. We went to some popular spots and some we might not have discovered without her! My personal reason for taking the tour was to get some pointers on taking fireworks and nighttime
