Full Moon Photo Tour

A Magical Photo Tour offered only twice a month. Do not miss this if you are in town.

The Full Moon Tour is offered twice a month. On both the night of the full moon and the evening before, when the moon is a sliver shy of fullness, we offer the chance to watch this celestial body slowly emerge from the ocean’s horizon. It’s a spectacular sight!

Watch the moon emerge from the ocean’s horizon and capture one-of-a-kind photographs of this celestial body’s magnificent beauty. We’ve designed an evening of play for anyone interested in photography.

Tripods are provided to let you experiment with shutter speeds and capture a variety of impressions of the moon’s beauty. Create scenes in your images by photographing the moon beside a lighthouse, a volcanic island, or if you’re lucky, the moon will cast a lunar rainbow!

Learn how to create steel wool photography, a shockingly simple yet remarkable fire-like photo technique that never fails to amaze the eye! Photograph the white sand along the beach as the moon lights up the sand in a breathtaking way.

Make sure to check our calendar as this photo tour only goes out twice a month. If you are lucky enough to be on the island during the full moon, you will be doing yourself a great favor by being one of only seven guests that can join this magical Oahu tour.

DEPARTURE TIME Please arrive promptly 30 minutes before your tour to check-in.
  • Do not bring more than you can carry. Nothing is left in the van when we are out shooting to prevent theft.
  • We provide you with a tripod. You may bring your own.
  • Wear comfortable, closed-toed shoes.
  • You may want to bring a light jacket if you get cold easily as it can be cold by the ocean.
  • We recommend you bring additional batteries and memory cards for your camera. We would hate to see you miss out.
To receive a full refund, you must contact us directly through email, or phone prior 48 hours to your tour start time. Any time after that we will charge 100% (no refund is given). Space is very limited, and we hope you understand. Please contact ASAP if you are going to cancel.

If you want to reschedule your tour, you must do so within 48 hours of the start time of your tour. Anytime after that, a $25 (per person) + tax will be charged to your account. Once you have made a rebooking, you will not be able to cancel your trip and receive any refund.

No show, no refund. We have limited seats, and if you decide not to go, it is not fair to us to have to refund your purchase. You will need to purchase a new ticket if you want to join another tour.
