How do I get to Hawaii?
You will want to book a flight into the Kona Airport. From there, we will pick you up and help you get settled in. If you decide to come a couple days before, we should be able to pick you up as long as you are in the town of Kona and let us know before hand.
How do I find cheap flights?
Prices can fluctuate but we try to get them booked as soon as possible :) My favorite tools for booking flights is google flights, skip lagged, and hopper. I love google flights because it tells you the best days, skip lagged is rad because it looks at loopholes in pricing with layovers, and hopper tells you the best time to buy!! Also, it’s really important to clear your cookies on your web browsing. With google algorithm, sometimes they notice that you look up flights multiple times and they will make it more expensive. For this reason, you have to go into your history and clear your cookies which erases your search history. Here's a little video showing you how to do that: (https://youtu.be/ptr2Dfdh16w).
When do I need to pay?
A $1000 deposit(+ the optional $150 dolphin tour) is due upfront to lock your spot! The remainder is due by August 1st, 2019.
If I need to cancel my trip, Can I get a refund?
Unfortunately, your payments are non-refundable. We can't do any refunds. In order to secure rates and ensure our group stays together, we need to be able to pre book our accommodations, transportation, activities, etc.
Do I need a visa to travel to Hawaii?
If you are coming from the United States, you don't need a visa. If you are coming from a different country, you need to check the visa requirements for your country.
How do I get accepted?
It's a first come, first serve basis! Simply fill out the application and we will reach out to you for the next steps. We review everyones information to make sure they are a good fit.
Who is Eligible to come?
Because of the rooms and roommate situations, we are accepting women and couples. You must be 18 years old or older to come!
What level of Photographer/Videographer do I need to be?
We can work with all levels!!! You don't have to have any knowledge of photo/video to come :)
