“a taste of Polynesia”

One of the top Hawai'i attractions includes the Polynesian Cultural Center, which features a 42-acre facility on the North Shore of Oahu. Founded in 1963, the nonprofit Center was created so that the students of nearby Brigham Young University Hawai'i could work their way through college by sharing their island heritage with visitors. The students come from an area that covers approximately 12 million square miles of the Pacific Ocean.

Immerse yourself in the culture of Hawaii and beyond at the Polynesian Cultural Center. The Oahu attraction highlights six island nations and thousands of years of history through its exhibitions, shows, and shopping.

During the day you can peruse its villages, and then in the evening, a luau brings the entire center together with an incredible show.

The best way to experience this unique place is through the Super Ambassador Tour. This splurge-worthy ticket option includes a private guided tour, multiple lei greetings, a reserved canoe ride in the onsite lagoon, premium buffet and luau seating, and a 3-day pass to return to the villages again.

Reviewers say the Super Ambassador tour is worth the price, but you can also experience the Polynesian Cultural Center at various price points.

The Polynesian Cultural Center is located in Laie, near Oahu’s north shore.

We think a visit here is one of the absolute best things to do in Hawaii!
