The North Shore Tour
Spend the day exploring and photographing the North Shore of O'ahu during this 8.5-hour tour from Waikiki. Visit a local coffee farm and learn about the cultiviation of 100% Hawaiian coffee. Then head to Sunset Beach, Banzai Pipeline, and the historic Haleiwa town, as well as Waimea Falls. Round-trip transportation from your Waikiki hotel included.
What to Expect
To make the most of the morning light, your North Shore photo tour begins with early morning pickup at your hotel, around 6:30 a.m. Climb into your tour vehicle with your photo guide and group of fellow photography aficionados and take off for the North Shore. 

Get your day started with a visit to Green wWorld Coffee Farm. Producing 100% Hawaiian coffee, this small farm is known for its excellent products. You'll have the opportunity to try some (own expense), before heading for Waimea waterfall and botanical garden.

Photograph the sights in the forest while enjoying the valley's cool breeze and peaceful vibes. Depending on the time of year, you will also explore various locations featuring green sea turtles, pristine beaches, pounding surf breaks, and azure waves.   Midday, stop in the historic Hale'iwa town to taste some grub at the local food trucks. Stroll through the town to peruse the art galleries and surf shops that some say reflect what Hawaii was like decades ago. 

Return to your Waikiki hotel for drop-off at the end of the day.
