What to Expect

Oahu Photography Tours offers you a “Golden Sunrise” photo tour. For those of you who are looking for a shorter time commitment but whom also wish to experience significant scenic locations on Oahu Island. We’ve put together an itinerary that guides you through gorgeous and dynamic scenes while also creating space for your freedom to explore to capture photographs that you’ll cherish on this sunrise tour.

We start the day on a high note, beginning your guided sunrise photo tour at the infamous Sandy Beach to capture the sun breaking over the horizon and the great shore breaks engulfing the light from the sun. Witness how the sun lights up the sky and the Pacific Ocean with pure brilliance, giving you the opportunity to capture exciting photos of its splendor.

After sunrise, you move on to the beautiful Makapu'u Lookout. This location is mindfully chosen for the views of East Oahu’s stunning landscape. With an abundance of beautiful sights to soak in, we encourage you to capture panoramic photos of the area to achieve the perfect picture of Hawaii’s natural landscape.

Continuing to Waimanalo Bay Beach Park, ranked as number one beach in America, you’ll visit the longest uninterrupted white-sand beach on Oahu. This famous Hawaiian destination is something you must do when visiting Oahu. Imagine it now: A beach lined with old growth and unique Australian ironwood trees, casting beautiful shadows across the white sand beach all while the blue waters are lighting up in the early morning, and with no one there but you. Your photographs will reflect the jaw-dropping effect of this natural environment! 

Your next stop up the Windward Coast of Oahu is a view of the majestic Ko’olau Mountains. The 2,000-foot cliffs have been carved pout with water erosion. You may be lucky enough to witness the largest waterfalls on Oahu. It will surely take your breath away.

Next, the Kalapawai Market is the best stop for a delicious and genuinely satisfying breakfast. This market has been a part of Hawaiian life since 1932. The market offers an array of food and drinks options to please every pallet and food preference. Try the breakfast burrito, it won't disappoint.

Your next stop on the Golden Sunrise Photo Tour lands you at the beautiful Ko’olau Mountains at the infamous and historical Pali Lookout. You will end the morning enjoying a grand view of the Waikiki skyline on the tip of the famous Tantalus Lookout. Recognizing the enormous potential this location has for capturing beautiful photographs, we knew it qualified as a big send-off of any memorable Oahu photo tour. Trust us, once you get there, you’ll understand! 

So what are you waiting for? You will only regret not waking up to get the most out of your time in Hawaii. You already know what its like to sleep in. Experience something better and more memorable. Book your Golden Sunrise Photo Tour today.
