We take you to Kauai's most spectacular and beautiful photo locations! See and photograph Kauai's BEST with a local, professional photographer. We'll visit numerous off the beaten path gorgeous settings to see and experience the natural beauty that is Kauai! One amazing photo location right after another the entire time. An incredibly satisfying and rewarding Kauai island experience. We have several different Photo Tours you can choose from (Walking, Hiking, Portraits our Private tours), and digital SLR camera rentals -with polarizers- also available. All of our photo tours are smaller for a more intimate, personal, quality & enjoyable experience. Most tours start between 9:30-10:30 am and return 5.5 hours later, though times can be often adjusted when needed. Designed for beginners, to advanced, to professional photographers and just sightseers alike. Kauai is a true photographer's paradise! Take our tour early-on and have time to revisit the places you enjoyed the most during the rest of your stay. Snacks and drinks Included on all tours! Visit our website for a complete list of information, pricing and photos. (Group tours are $119 per person and Private Tours are $439 and *include* two people and $75 for each additional over two.) Mahalo!

This trip was well worth the time and expense which I thought was a bargain.

I had gone on Kauai Photo tours in 2014 and loved it then. When I knew I was coming back to Kauai, I wanted to make sure and go on their photo tour again. Matt was the tour guide this time and is a wealth of information of Kauai and photography. Even though I took the same tour, still saw... More

Best way to see a number of hard to find beaches as well as other scenic spots north of Kapaa. Michelle, Kahea, and Matt very friendly and knowledgeable about cameras and photo techniques. While I am an avid photographer, my wife is less interested but she was particularly happy with tour and the locations visited. Highly recommended!

Although I spent most of my time snapping photos behind my Nikon DSLR camera, our guides were more than willing to take a few pictures with us in it. (And their shots are always well framed and composed!) Not only did we see fantastic locations to photograph, our guides gave us great recommendations for dinner afterwards. (You can't go wrong...

My significant other and I are old-style 35 mm photographers, but had gotten rusty. We really appreciated Damon's refreshing our knowledge of photography principles, as well as visits to many lush, scenic areas we would not have discovered on our own. Damon is a super-nice guy (it rained briefly and he really wanted us to have umbrellas -- we said... More

The guides were great! A lot of island information. They took the group (6 people) to places that we had not seen on our own. These were some of the best photo spots on the island. Thanks guys!

We were in Kauai at the end of March for my wife's birthday. We saw an ad for Kauai Photo Tours and decided to take one of their tours. I can say that they were really great. Our guide, Damon, was very knowledgeable, friendly and fun. He took us to a few places off the beaten path that were spectacular.... More

Tour was amazing! The staff at the shop were awesome, they got our cameras set (we rented two) and showed us how to use a polarizer on our camera phones. We asked about the polarizer (they did not push it) and then bought one for $12. It was well worth the price. Our photographer/tour guide Dameon was fantastic. He gave... More

This tour was great. It is a good idea to take this tour early on your trip. It gives you idea of where to go and what to skip. It gave me a good overview of the north and east areas. They took us place that would be hard to find on your own. They were all great places to... More

Cruise ship excursion. Took us to several great beaches off the beaten path. Photographer who led the trip was very knowledgeable and offered good tips on landscape photography.
