Vacation Day 2 - Monday: Polynesian Cultural Center - HA Breath of Life Show
What better way to begin our vacation than to immerse ourselves in the many cultures of the Pacific Islands at the 42-acre Polynesian Cultural Center? We will stroll through a complex of recreated villages in Aotearoa (New Zealand), ancient Hawaii, Tahiti, Fiji, Samoa and Tonga. At each stop, we will find hands-on activities and demonstrations showing cultural wonders like the art of fire dancing, climbing 50-foot trees in bare feet, spear-throwing, coconut-husking, and the Haka warrior dance! Enjoy the regional culinary delights of Polynesian culture as you sample Tahitian coconut bread or “poi”, the staple Hawaiian food made out of taro. Explore some of the traditions of the different islands like lei-making, or try your skill at playing derua and making Fijian music.
Then enjoy an island feast of savory Hawaiian, Asian and mainland entrees served buffet sytle. After dinner experience "HА™" - 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.
Vacation Day 3 - Tuesday: Waikiki Ocean Club
For fun in the Hawaiian sun off the coast of Waikiki Beach, there’s no better place to head than the Waikiki Ocean Club on the pristine Pacific Ocean. Waiting for us 300 yards off shore is the Ocean Club Catamaran, a floating playground stocked full of fun and exciting activities. Swimming in a refreshing pool on a hot day is great, but sometimes nothing short of a dip in the ocean will do. At the Waikiki Ocean Club, swim to your heart’s content in the Pacific Ocean’s wonderful waters and then dry off in the spectacular sun on the deck of the catamaran. There are also three platforms for diving and a 15-foot slide to go down if that’s more your speed! Take advantage of snorkel gear and explore all the underwater offerings in the area.
Want to take part in more adventerous aquatic activities, there are certainly plenty of options to choose from. For an additional cost, take a Jet Ski out for a spin, hit the waves on a banana sled, or try parasailing. Kayaks are also available.. Just want to relax then stretch out on luxurious chaise lounges and bathe in the warm Hawaiian sunshine on the large sun deck.
Tonight let's stroll, windown shop and dine at the Waikiki Beach Walk, an outdoor entertainment plaza, nearly fifty new retailers and sixteen dining establishments.
