Polynesian Cultural Center

Polynesian Cultural Center

The Polynesian Cultural Center is one of the most visited attractions on Oahu.

It’s a great family attraction where you can see the lifestyles of seven native villages. Each with their own culture, music, dances and more… (Visit the Tongans, Hawaiians, Tahitians and more…)

Take a canoe tour of the village. Taste freshly prepared food. Throw spears at coconuts or drum your heart out… There’s a lot to do and see! (That’s also why you need to make sure to take more than 1 day for the Polynesian Cultural Center. There is so much to do.) The Polynesian Cultural Center is a non-profit and educational organization. And it is run by friendly and accommodating staff.

Optional at the Polynesian Cultural Center:

The following attractions are not included in the Go Oahu Card. But while you are there at the Polynesian Cultural Center and have the opportunity, they come highly recommended!

The Luau (a traditional Hawaiian party or feast, accompanied by entertainment), with its traditional flower greeting, imu ceremony and reserved seating, provides your ears, eyes AND taste buds with an authentic Hawaiian experience and buffet.

The Ha: Breath Of Life is an exciting experience. This evening show tells the story of Mana and his beloved Lani, and does so with passion, fire, song and dance! It’s an epic saga with over 100 Polynesian actors, dancers, fireknife jugglers and with a lot of special effects and animation. Don’t miss this! It’s spectacular. Which it would better be with a production cost of $3 million. 🙂 It runs from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm. (That’s 90 minutes with a 10 minute intermission.)

If you do want to experience the Ha: Breath of Life show, then be aware that you need to book in advance. (You cannot book onsite in the Polynesian Cultural Center when you’re there.)
