    The Experience

    Connect with local traditions while immersing yourself in Hawaii's natural beauty with a private canoeing tour and poi-making lesson at the Polynesian Cultural Center. The day begins with a traditional lei greeting before you embark on a canoe tour with a master navigator in our freshwater lagoon. You’ll land in front of the hand-carved voyaging canoe Iosepa to explore and tour. Next, youʻll stop for an interactive lesson in the kalo patch and learn how to make traditional poi. Finally, you'll paddle past the other villages within the center and learn their history. Exclusively for Mastercard cardholders.
