Full description
Enter a world of discovery and adventure at the Polynesian Cultural Center. Explore the 42-acre tropical oasis which highlights the beauty and culture of 6 island villages through engaging demonstrations, theatrical performances, and educational activities. Begin your hassle-free experience right away with an expert guide who will lead the way. The Polynesian Cultural Center offers foreign-language guides who speak Japanese, Cantonese, Mandarin, Korean, Russian, German, Spanish, Italian, French, and Portuguese.

As you venture through the center, participate in a myriad activities and learn traditions and customs from local villages including Hawaii, Fiji, New Zealand, Samoa, Tahiti, and Tonga. Whether you are visiting the island village of Hawaii to learn the significance of hula or experiencing the special wedding ceremony while visiting Tahiti, you will be entertained and inspired. Witness a Samoan warrior climb a 40-foot coconut tree or explore the Fiji village and watch presentations held throughout the day, get a temporary tattoo, and tour the 6-story temple. 

Your friendly and knowledgeable guide will make sure you see the one-of-a-kind pageant on the water, called Huki: A Canoe Celebration. During the production, you will witness a spectacular show which takes place on boats as they glide along the tropical lagoon. Representatives from each island’s culture dance on their canoe as they make their way around the water.
