Honolulu Sea-Cliff Tour with Sunset

Oahu Photography Tours have created the Hawaiian Sunset Photo Tour of East Oahu. This sunset tour not only positions you in perfect timing to capture brilliant colors of a Hawaiian sunset, but you get to take pictures of the sun-rays as they touch and graze the topography of Oahu Island’s Windward side. Experience the cool breeze on top of the Hawaiian mountains, mixed with the drama of pounding ocean waters. Try delicious local food not found in Waikiki, capture paraglider flying over lighthouses, and sea cliffs on the water’s edge will have you saying “I never want to leave Hawaii” after this tour.

Begin your journey high above the clear waters of the Hanauma Bay while you drive to the Lana’i lookout after some stunning panoramic photos have been taken. The blue colors of the Kawai channel are both breathtaking and overwhelming. Depending on the time of year, you may spot the Hawaiian born Humped-backed whale or the Monk Seal of Hawaii. A stop at Koko Crater Botanical garden is next on the list, Beautiful and intricate grooves of Plumeria will have you stopping to smell and photograph these bright tropical flowers. The spirit of this location is pleasing and benefits you with a sense of inner peace, serenity, and of course, by providing the gift of beautiful images.

Centered and inspired, you’ll be brought up close and personal with the Ko’olau Mountains at the Makapu’u lookout for an unforgettable experience with this protected landscape. You’ll understand why this location was designated as a National Natural Landmark in 1972 because preserving the pure quality of this natural feat is worth appreciating. Anyone looking for memorable things to do in Oahu will feel the value in sharing space with the majestic Ko’olau Mountains.

After all of the excitement, the Hawaiian Sunset Island Tour will take a break to satisfy our appetites at Ono Steaks & Shrimp, which specializes in Hawaiian and Hawaii-inspired dishes. All meals are served with a local style and cannot be found in Waikiki. You are going to love this food so much, and we bet we will see you here again during your vacation.

Let’s watch the Halona Blow spout off while your delicious food settles in your bellies. You could be super lucky to see the water shoot up over your heads at this movie location and favorite photo spot. After snapping the shots of the Blow Hole and Eternity Beach, they’ll prepare to photograph Hawaii’s most epic sunset on the Eastern tip of Oahu, where you’ll capture the sun dropping down the sky along the sea cliff walls. This beauty can only be witnessed by you and you alone unless you use one of our tripods to stream the event live.
