Why Visit The Polynesian Cultural Center?
Over the years, the Polynesian Cultural Center (PCC) has become one of Hawaii’s best-known and most-visited sights. Located on the North Shore of Oahu, the PCC offers visitors a trip through the culture and history of the islands of the South Pacific.
Let your PCC adventure begin on the ride from Waikiki to the North Shore – the minibus transportation option provides a narrated, scenic tour of the Windward coastline. When you arrive at the PCC, be sure to grab a Daily Schedule so you can plan your day around the different shows and activities that will be going on that day – you won’t want to miss anything. Do not pass up the beauty and tradition of the canoe pageant, Rainbows of Paradise. The IMAX movie, Coral Reef Adventure, is another journey you will want to take. Demonstrations are given daily throughout the park in the seven showcased native villages. Finally, be sure not to miss the premier event – Horizons: Where the Sea Meets the Sky, winner of the Hawaii Visitors & Convention Bureau’s “Keep It Hawaii” Award for the most authentic Hawaiian luau; this luau is an experience you will want to have.
With so much to do and so much to see, the PCC is one sight on Oahu that cannot be missed. You enjoy the Aloha Spirit of the Hawaiian Islands – now come and see what makes Hawaii what it is – you’ll be happy that you did.
What Makes The Polynesian Cultural Center Unique
What could be more unique than a 42-acre compound dedicated to presenting visitors with the culture of the Hawaiian Islands and South Pacific alike? You will not find another place in the Hawaiian Islands like the Polynesian Cultural Center (PCC) – it is a one-of a kind destination located on the North Shore of Oahu that transports visitors through time to learn about South Pacific culture and traditions.
The PCC is best known for their evening luau, Horizons: Where the Sea Meets the Sky, winner of the Hawaii Visitors & Convention Bureau’s “Keep It Hawaii” Award for the most authentic Hawaiian luau. This is not the only thing that sets the PCC apart from all other tours and sights in Oahu – the PCC is home to seven native villages based on South Pacific Islands including Tonga, Samoa, and Tahiti among others. These villages each provide demonstrations daily of dancing, singing, and other cultural aspects of life in these tropical locations. What other Island location provides you with a canoe pageant and the only IMAX Theater on Oahu?
With so much to see and do at the PCC, visitors are offered a three for one deal called “Free-within-Three” – the purchase of a General Admission ticket allows the ticket-holder to return to the PCC on all or any of the next three days that the park is open. Even better – with the purchase of a General Admission ticket online, visitors are offered the “Give me 5 free” deal, which allows the ticket-holder to return to the park all or any of the following five days that it’s open. This is definitely an offer that can’t be beat and is completely unique to this sight.
The PCC in itself is a unique Hawaiian sight that cannot be missed by visitors of the island of Oahu. Filled with culture and traditions of the South Pacific all in this one location, the PCC should be at the top of anyone’s list when deciding what to see and do on Oahu.
