Description

from Chief's Luau at Sea Life Park
From Sea Life Park’s private Makapu’u Meadows and its breathtaking panoramic backdrop, experience a lu’au like none other with Chief Sielu and his tribe of fire twirling, tree climbing, comedic, dynamic Polynesian drummers, dancers and entertainers.

Interact with your Pacific Island hosts as you enjoy interactive Hawaiian crafts, hula lessons, weaving, tattooing and more, then sink your teeth into a lavish lu'au feast. Your evening culminates with the Hawaiian extravaganza of your dreams with Chief Sielu, the original World Champion Fire Knife Dancer and widely regarded as the best and funniest Polynesian entertainer in the South Pacific!

Chief Sielu has appeared on David Letterman, Travel & Discovery Channels, and Oprah Winfrey. He starred in the movie Chief featured at the Sundance Film Festival, and threw the flaming spear that ignited the Olympic torch at a pre-Olympic ceremony in Salt Lake City.

Chief Sielu is internationally known as “The Coconut Man” for his 20 years at the Polynesian Cultural Center’s Samoan Village and star World Champion Fire Knife Dancer at their evening show. He is also known as the “Ambassador of Polynesia” and “That Polynesian Comedian.”

"A Wow Experience!"

Once you get off the bus I felt totally immersed into the local culture. Everything was perfect to ensure a great experience. The music, dancing and the food was incredible. The ocean view was breathtaking. Everyone got a crown to wear and bring home, made with their own hands from coconut leaves. A great value for the cost. An educational and fun experience for everyone. It is a must if visiting Oahu. If I return to Oahu I will definitely attend another Chief's Luau.

The show was really good, interactive and at times funny. The activities were also neat, made a head band and started a fire. The guide in the bus was really informative, not only about the luau but other activities and cultural history. The food was nothing to call home about but the show and the overall experience was fantastic.

We visited this wonderful luau last year on our trip to Oahu. The Chief’s Luau was the highlight of our trip, sitting here thinking about the best things we did as a family last year and I highly recommend this to everyone, young, old, or in between.

My first luau and it did not disappoint. From our host K who was funny and knowledgable and a true local to all the hosts once your in the gate to the performers and chief himself. It was all a excellent experience and the food was great. I would highly recommend it. Only thing I wish it was longer at the beginning to give everyone time to do the activities and meet more of the performers.
