Do I need to be a photographer?
Nope! Everyone is welcome and will have a great time seeing our island and capturing its beauty whether a total beginner or advanced photographer....everyone will walk away with a beautiful experience that will last a lifetime!
Do I need to have an iPhone?
iPhones are great, but so are Android devices, cameras, point and shoots, or just a smile on your face....we will have a great time!
Here at Aloha Turtle Tours we will never rush any moment that unfolds for us on our tours. To have to be rushed while on vacation off a beach or away from a beautiful moment is not our idea of a good time.
Will we have to get herded onto a bus or big van constantly not able to enjoy ourselves?
None of the scheduled times work for me or my group. Can you do custom times?
Yes we can! If none of our standard times work for you or your group, just call or send an email and we'll build a fantastic tour around your schedule!
What if we dont show up for the tour?
Please review our cancellation and refund policy that was included in your booking confirmation. We do not provide refunds for no-show tours.
We recommend a 7:00–7:30 am pick-up, which will have you back between 4:30–5:30 pm. However, the pick-up time is completely up to you!
What are your standard tour times for private tours?
Where are your pick-up locations for private tours?
