Best Hawaii Luaus – Chief’s Luau at Sea Life Park

10 Reasons To Go To Chief’s Luau at Sea Life Park


My evening at Chief’s Luau at Sea Life Park was one of the best evenings of our family Hawaii Vacation. Check out my list of 10 reasons to go to Chief’s Luau.


1. Interactive Hawaii Activities  

The kids loved the interactive Hawaii Activities at Chief’s Luau. My daughter enjoyed weaving her own headband and my son had a blast learning to throw a spear. We also tried out the hula lessons, fire making and tattooing! The moment you walk into Chief’s Luau and receive your lei greeting the fun begins!

2. Imu Ceremony  

A crowd gathered as the pig was uncovered and lifted from the imu, an underground oven. As the Chief spoke about the process of cooking he told us “in Samoa the men do most of the cooking and cleaning.” Sounds like my kind of place!

6. Pineapple Cake

The food at Chief’s Luau was delicious! My favorites were lomi lomi salmon, taro rolls, poi, grilled mahi mahi, chicken yakitori and kalua pork. Be sure to save room for dessert! The pineapple cake is legendary. My youngest somehow managed to score three pieces of the delicious dessert!

7. Dancing

After dinner the dancing began! The show started with dancing from Tahiti.



The Hawaiian Luau show continued with amazing dances from the Chief’s Luau dancers. One of my favorites was watching Blue Hawaii performed by Miss Waikiki.

I also learned the best way to get rid of mosquitoes – the Samoan Slap Dance!

8. Fire

The finale was the mesmerizing fire knife dance. Chief Sielu made fire by rubbing a stick and before we knew it the sky was illuminated with stunning fire knife dancing.
