Chief's Luau at Sea Life Park
Set at Sea Life Park’s stunningly scenic Makapu'u Meadows, backed by
tall sea cliffs and overlooking the ocean, this is a luau unlike any
other in Hawaii. It is highly interactive and very funny! What
makes this luau different is Chief Sielu, a world champion fire-knife
dancer and Polynesian comedian. Chief Sielu is widely regarded as the
best and funniest Polynesian entertainer in the South Pacific. He has
appeared on Late Night with David Letterman, The Tonight Show, Travel
Channel, Discovery Channel, BBC, MTV and Oprah Winfrey.
Join Chief Sielu’s ohana (family) for an evening as you
immerse yourself in the rich heritage of the Islands and take home
memories of a lifetime. Sip a Mai Tai cocktail and sink your teeth into a
lavish Hawaiian feast, a sumptuous blend of traditional luau foods
blended with Hawaiian Regional Cuisine. And finally, enjoy a thrilling
Polynesian show!Chief’s Luau Buffet Menu:
Greens with Mandarin Oranges, Radish Sprouts, Crisp Rice Noodles &

Choose from three different Chief's Luau packages:
Optional Roundtrip Transportation from Waikiki: Chief’s Luau is within easy reach from Waikiki (just a half hour
drive), yet far enough to be away from the bright city lights. Most
guests choose the convenience of driving to the luau in a luxurious
motorcoach. Roundtrip is per person (select transportation option on
purchase). Each motorcoach is hosted by a professional escort who is a
walking encyclopedia of Hawaiian lore (and some of our escorts are also
comedians-in-training). Your escort will inform and entertain you
throughout your scenic drive to the Chief’s Luau.
