From the mountains of Tahiti to the rivers of Hawaii nei, water has connected and sustained its people for thousands of years. The Wai Kai Show will take you across our great ocean, sharing stories of ancient and modern times. Join us as we surf through the rich history and cultural legacy left by the kupuna (ancestors) who navigated across the South Pacific seas.

Gather on the lanai at The LookOut restaurant where the viewing decks that surround the Wai Kai Wave become your theatre to watch the dancers, musicians and surfers perform. This is the first show ever to incorporate live surfing by using the 100-foot wide Wai Kai Wave in the performance - the perfect way to learn about the history of Heʻe Nalu (ocean wave riding) and Heʻe Puʻe Wai (river wave surfing).

The Wai Kai Show is table service and includes appetizers, dinner and dessert. Dinner is served family style with your choice from four main course options. Dietary needs may be accommodated. Advanced purchase for tickets are required. This performance will sell out fast, so book early!

Unfolded by the water are the faces of the flowers.  Flowers thrive where there is water, as thriving people are found where living conditions are good.
