Owner description: The Polynesian Cultural Center, voted the #1 attraction in Hawaii by USA Today, is located along the famous North Shore of Oahu. Explore 42 acres of tropical splendor featuring 6 authentic villages representing the island cultures of Hawaii, Fiji, Aotearoa (New Zealand), Samoa, Tahiti, and Tonga. Mingle with Pacific islanders as they share the majesty of their culture through music, dance and traditional hands-on activities. Our most popular dining option is the award-winning Ali’i Luau. This royal feast blends a delicious array of island and mainland dishes with the excitement of authentic island entertainment from across Polynesia. Finish your adventure though the power of “Ha: Breath of Life,” an action-packed evening show. Ignited by fire, song and dance featuring over 100 Polynesian performers, this story of passion will make this day a truly unforgettable experience. The Polynesian Cultural Center: all of Polynesia in one exciting place.

we visited The Polynesian Cultrural Center March 17,2018. We got a really good military discount on the base Laua called Alihi and on the tour bus there we upgraded our tickets for 27.00 per ticket which gave us Awesome seats for HA Breath of Life ( 3rd row!!) which followed an Awesome Luau.Touring majority of the villages from Samoa, Hawaii, New Zealand and others it was really cool to learn how the South Pacific people live.Really interesting.We also seen the Parade of Canoes which was really cool!

We had a great time at PCC yesterday. We did the Super Ambassador package and our guide Chad was awesome! He made us feel right at home from the start, was very knowledgeable, and was focused on our experience every step of the way. We really felt like he was a part of our family all day! The center's staff were all very nice and very helpful. The demonstrations were beyond amazing, with a bit of humor interjected which made it even more fun. Being able to participate hands-on made the experience even more fun and allowed us to really "feel" the culture a bit. Mahalo to the PCC for a wonderful time and a special mahalo to Chad for taking such good care of us! He is a true asset to your organization, and his pride in his Samoan culture made the experience even more rewarding.

The experience here is beyond just a luau. You can easily arrive by 2pm and spend the entire afternoon and evening enjoying the culture, food, and shows. Everyone is amazing and friendly and even in the rain the experience is the same. This is a must do activity.

Our family loved the Polynesian Cultural Center. The presenters were humorous, the villages and activities were very informative. The grounds were immaculate and the workers were friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed the luau and the Breathe of Life Show. The fire dancers were everyone's favorite. A plus is that you can come back for free within 3 days. It is hard to see everything in one day especially if you do the luau.
The tram ride to the LDS temple was beautiful; so glad we took advantage of it.

We had a great day in Laie with our 3 children (ages 16, 12, & 12). The PCC was a lot of fun and it was fun learning a small snippet about each of the islands. We enjoyed the hands on activities, and the Ha: Breath of Life show was very cool.
