We can't say enough about our day at the PCC. We purchased the super ambassador package and were treated like royalty from the moment we walked in the door. I liken this place to Disney-world meets Polynesia...LOL. This was such a fun and informative day....More

This is a very well put together center. Appears that the college kids enjoy sharing their cultures with the visitors. The 2:30 show was entertaining for all age groups. I highly recommend it to anyone who visits Oahu!

We had a fantastic experience at PCC and can’t recommend their luau enough! The performances of each island felt very authentic and the staff are very knowledgeable and were able to answer the majority of my groups questions.
