Capture the most beautiful moments on the island on a sunrise tour that visits some of the most scenic locations at the best time of day for picture-taking.


From sunrise on east Oahu to the famous North Shore of the island, this circle-island tour brings you to some of the most iconic and scenic locations on Oahu starting during the magical "golden hour"—the hour right after dawn when the lighting and color are just right to take brilliant outdoor shots of Hawaii's natural beauty. See the sun rise from below the horizon while standing on the beautiful Sandy Beach in Waimanalo before heading to Makapuu Lookout for panoramic views of the area. You'll also visit other pristine beaches and gorgeous lookouts throughout the tour.
