Want an authentic cultural experience of Pacific island peoples? Then don’t miss the Polynesian Cultural Center. There you’ll find six distinct island villages representing the cultures that first migrated to Hawai’i, creating the unique blend of cultures we see in Hawai’i today. The world renown “Parade of Canoes”, multiple theaters, museums, live shows and an award winning luau or buffet dinner make this one of Hawaii’s most popular attractions! Come and see for yourself how “Aloha” came to be.
Submarine warfare during WWII became one of the single most effective and successful ways of attacking military and shipping targets throughout the Pacific theater of war. At Pearl Harbor you can step back in time by boarding the USS Bowfin, a fleet attack submarine that helped make the “Silent Service” famous. It was launched exactly one year after the attack and was nicknamed the “Pearl Harbor Avenger”.
Ancient Hawai’i comes alive at Waimea Valley, on Oahu’s north shore. It’s an amazing place where Hawaiians lived and thrived for nearly 1000 years! The valley was so beautiful that it was awarded to the Kahuna Nui (High Priests) in 1092 A.D. Spanning from Waimea Bay to the beautiful waterfall at the back of the river valley, this lush park has treasures… authentic Hawaiian plants, botanical gardens, hale (Hawaiian thatched dwellings), heiau (religious temples) and an easily accessed 30’ waterfall you can swim right up to – if you dare! Lifeguards are on duty and lifejackets are available.
