Get close—but not too close—to the sharks at Sea Life Park

As the sun sets over the island of Oahu, torches light the stage, illuminating the entertainment unfolding before you. Ka Moana Luau, like so many other Hawaiian luaus, ends with a breathtaking display of hula and fire-knife dancing. It comes after the feast of an authentic Hawaiian buffet and the multitude of family-friendly activities that kick off the evening.

But with Ka Moana Luau taking place in Sea Life Park on Oahu, is it safe to assume that you’ll also be given access to the park before the evening event starts? Does your day of fun actually start when you arrive at the luau, or does Ka Moana provide a little something extra to help enhance your day?

Do I Get Access to Sea Life Park?

Since the luau check-in only starts after the park closes, you might be thinking that you’ll only be able to enter the park to get to the luau. But happily, that’s not the case when you book the Ka Moana Luau. Aiming to give you a full Hawaii experience and a day of unforgettable fun and entertainment, the good people behind Ka Moana Luau give you all-day access to Sea Life Park and all its shows and exhibits!

Ka Moana tacks on this added bit of fun to ensure you can spend the whole day in the same location where your luau takes place. And since it’s only a twenty-minute drive from Waikiki during non-rush hours, you have plenty of time to enjoy all that the park has to offer.
