Sunrise Tours

2hr tour

Ask anyone who has started their day with magnificent sunrise tours and they will tell you it was spectacular. But you are already here and researching this sunrise tour so are likely to already know that a sunrise tour is the best way to start the day.

Try not for once defaulting to coffee first thing in the morning, postpone the morning yoga to after our easy exercise excursion and instead of yawning and stretching your way out of bed, look forward to a sunrise tour micro adventure with great people and great views of the orange, red and yellow light spectrums.

Sunrise tour phenomenons

We meet 1 hour before the sunrise. This means meeting during the nautical stages at dawn (30mins-1hr before sunrise), then we will tour around as the light starts to appear during civil twilight (0-30mins before sunrise).

'Golden hour' (or magic hour) takes place during the first hour after the sun rises or the hour before the sun sets.

When booking a Sunrise tour, please be mindful of the weather! Especially rain and cloud cover; or we won't see the sun rise!
