COVID-19 Update: With the lifting of the visitor quarantine on October 15 for those with negative tests, many of our activities are operating or will be soon. Please check our booking calendars.
Spend a magical evening enriched by Hawaii’s vibrant culture, history, food, and dance.
A great opportunity to venture outside the hustle & bustle of Honolulu to the scenic and sparsely populated southeastern coast, the Ka Moana Luau is located at Sea Life Park, a marine mammal park, bird sanctuary, and aquarium. As an alternative to driving yourself, you can be escorted via tour bus via the beautiful coastal route, which traverses through neighborhoods of the rich & famous as well as past Hanauma Bay, while you enjoy the interesting and entertaining commentary by the driver. Just 30 minutes from Waikiki, the luau setting is worth the journey — flanked by towering cliffs on one side and the ocean on the other with offshore islands adding to the charm.
Upon arrival and being greeted with a lei, a Mai Tai cocktail, and some lomi lomi salmon and poi (blended taro) appetizers, you can stroll the grounds taking photos of the stunning surroundings as the sun sets and also visit the many cultural activity stations, including to learn hula dancing, lei making, weaving, ukulele playing, and temporary Polynesian tattoos.
An all-you-can-eat dinner buffet showcases a variety of island foods, including mahi mahi fish, juicy kalua pork cooked all day in an underground hot stone stove, and tropical desserts. Indulge in the bar that includes specialty tropical cocktails, local craft beer, wine, and more.
Performances during the show portion will take you on a journey through Hawaii and broader Polynesia, both past and present. Highlights include an exciting Maori war dance, graceful hula dancing, and climactic fire dance, with humorous commentary and audience participation sprinkled throughout. You’ll not only be entertained, but also depart with lasting memories and a newfound appreciation for Hawaii.
Also included is (optional) free day admission to Sea Life Park, a $40 value! Coach bus transportation from/to Waikiki is available for only $18/person [note: temporarily suspended due to COVID-19].
Our online prices as published on this page are up to 15% OFF the retail price! There is no downside versus paying full price.
COVID-19 CHANGES (Jan Update): Since reopening on December 1, there are multiple changes for the foreseeable future including: 1) No transportation service (although this may return in February), 2) All parties will have a private table, and 3) Meal served cafeteria-style by staff. Please note that Sea Life Park currently has not reopened and therefore may not be open for free admission during the day depending on the dates of your trip. More details can be found in the FAQ below.
Especially due to the reduced capacity and the lack of other open luaus, this luau is often selling out. Standard seating is usually the first to sell out.
Due to COVID, there currently is a requirement for the island of Oahu that no more than 5 people may be at one table. Therefore, if you book a party of more than 5 and this restriction is still active, you will likely be seated at two separate tables next to each other. If you have 5 or less, please make sure to book altogether under one booking in order to be seated at the same table; otherwise, you will be at adjacent tables.
