At the Polynesian Cultural Center explore and experience eight island villages and exhibits representing the Islands of Aotearoa New Zealand, Fiji, Hawaii,
Samoa, Marquesas, Rapa Nui, Tonga and Tahiti.
Learn firsthand from the native peoples of each island with interactive demonstrations that teach you the games, fun and friendship of Polynesia. Get a
temporary tattoo, catch a fish or learn to dance one of the exciting hip shaking dances of Tahiti. See an active Polynesian voyaging canoe up close and
learn how to make fire. Plus, enjoy the exciting Rainbows of Paradise canoe pageant showcasing the songs and dances of each island culture on the Center's winding lagoon.
Give your feet a rest and take a relaxing tram tour through Laie town to see the surrounding community, then cap off your adventure in Hawaii's only IMAX™ theatre
to learn about the importance of coral reefs with a Coral Reef Adventure. Don't forget to take a quick turn through our souvenir shops to see what Polynesian
treasures might await to commemorate your day's escape to the islands of Polynesia.
"Ha-Breath of Life." Come, breathe it in.
The Spectacular Story of the Soul, come experience a legend that lives in every island culture, every village, every home.
It's an ancient, yet universal tale. It's the visually stunning story of a boy born in a distant paradise. He's nurtured by a village, learns the ways of his people, finds love by moonlight, and defends everything with heart-stopping bravery. It's "Ha-Breath of Life," Oahu's extraordinary new night show. Breathe it in.
Experience "Ha" - the spectacle of over a hundred performers from across the Pacific, drums, dance, all new music and special effects, a fire spewing volcano and a world renowned fire knife performance.
Come. Breathe it in. And let the island spirit live in you long after your departure.
Hawaii's Newest Ancient Story.
Born just after his parents wash ashore, Mana begins a South Pacific odyssey that leads to becoming a warrior. In the process, he must prove his worthiness to wed the fair Lani by walking on fire. And, ultimately, he must battle to protect his new family from marauding invaders. The tale is as old as the islands, and as new as each breath we take. With the power of surround sound, the aural echoes of Polynesia will ring in your ears as the Pacific culture stirs your soul.
