Chief’s Luau at Sea Life Park
The luau at Sea Life Park is unique and truly extraordinary in that it boasts a spectacular dolphin show and a penguin greeting. Located on Oahu’s southeastern tip, Sea Life Park is nestled along the verdant Koolau Mountain range. From here, you’ll enjoy great views of Rabbit Island, the historic lighthouse at Makapuu Point and the surrounding sea cliffs. This luau is also more intimate and family-oriented than other luaus on Oahu.
After the penguin greeting and the dolphin show, you’ll witness the traditional imu ceremony, the presentation of the kalua pig, which has been roasted all day in an underground oven, the imu. The all-you-can-eat menu features traditional Hawaiian as well as American favorites, such as lomi lomi salmon, sashimi, tako poke, tofu with shoyu ginger potato/macaroni salad, teriyaki beef, mahi mahi (island fish), kalua pig, laulau, poi, assorted veggies, tossed salad with dressing, chicken long rice, white rice, sweet potato, sweet potato dinner rolls, assorted cakes, coffee and tea. You’ll also get two complimentary drink tickets.
The sensational setting is matched only by the amazing Polynesian show, hosted by Tihati Productions. Park admission is included in this luau package, so if you want, you can come early and explore the entire park. The park opens at 10:30 am. The luau takes place on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. Coupled with the delightful activities of Sea Life Park, this is a superb way to spend an entire day here on Oahu.
