What you'll do

You'll first meet us (Patrick and Chase) outside the city at the Wa'ahila Ridge state recreation area. We will provide detailed parking instructions along with a meeting location. Once we introduce ourselves and become friends, we will go over some brief safety concerns, make sure everyone is properly equipped, answer any questions anyone might have, and begin on our adventure.

On the trail, we will stop along breaks and lookouts to take photos over scenic valleys, city backdrops, and lush mountains. The trail is considered a beginner to moderate level hike that is just under 4 miles with a couple tricky up and down sections, but is very manageable so please come prepared. You'll experience a different side of Hawai'i that you typically see in pictures...but now you're in them! When we are finished and say our goodbyes, we will provide you with a minimum of 20 digital photos via dropbox within 72 hours. Please feel free to share these photos with your friends and family on instagram and facebook!

Please note that this location is a state recreation area that is open to the public. This also means that while general foot traffic is very low ( typically this trail sees very few visitors) but at peak times, sunset for example, will occasionally hold a small crowd also enjoying the views. Fortunately, this is very easy to work around.

ALOHA and welcome to the beautiful island of O'ahu! We truly appreciate this piece of paradise and were fortunate to make the full time move here almost two years ago. As an active military member, Chase, and graduate student, Patrick, we take our work seriously, but take every chance to pursue our lifelong passions of surfing, photography, and hiking. We've been blessed to spend tireless days exploring trails, surfing world class waves, and diving for dinner around the island. This has allowed us to invest countless hours into our photography craft and business capturing amazing landscapes and truly one-of-a-kind photos. So don't worry about finding the perfect adventure, we've got you covered! Let us share with you an epic photographed nature experience and explore one of our favorite gems around O'ahu.

Where you'll be

We'll be exploring one of the many ridge trails that the island has to offer. As some trails are very crowded and others quite difficult and challenging, we have selected the Wa'ahila Ridge trail with a moderate skill level. While we must conquer some lightly strenuous sections, the payoff is amazing lookouts and photo opportunities that are well worth the energy!

Easily could hike yourself. Not a bad experience but definitely don’t think it was worth the money. Got pictures after the 72 hours stated but good communication with host

Excellent hike. My wife had fractured her knee a while back and was in a knee brace for this adventure. Patrick took his time with us and we got through the whole hike. Very patient and knowledgeable. Definitely recommend this hike, beautiful scenery once at the top.

Awesome time with Patrick. He received the photos the same day we took the hike. An awesome hike that seemed hard but finished to be an experience of a life time. He even waited in the parking lot until my Lyft came to pick us up. Thanks again Pat.

My hike with Patrick was great! He was super friendly and was patient during the hike if I needed to go slow or take a break. And he sent on the photos later that same day. Would definitely recommend this :)

This was my first hiking experience ever. It was def not easy, more on the intermediate side, even for a fit person like me, however it was totally doable because Patrick knows this trail extremely well. He was really patient with my co worker and I, got to know us, helped us a whole bunch and gave us adequate breaks. I would recommend this tour!!
