Allow yourself at least 60-75 minutes of straight drive time. Please note that commuter traffic from Honolulu to the North Shore can be heavy from 3:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. on weekdays.
Drive west (the side closer to the mountains) on the H-1 freeway (driving toward the mountains on either McCully St. or Kapahulu Ave. are the two closest on-ramps from Waikiki).
Exit right at Likelike Highway (#63, just past Bishop Museum), driving up and through the spectacular Koolau Mountains.
Take the first right-hand exit (Kahekili Highway), which soon turns into Kamehameha Highway (#83), and continue North.
Enjoy 23 miles of breathtaking scenery on #83, including Kualoa, Mokoli’i Island (Chinaman’s Hat), and Kahana Bay. Once you enter Laie, the Polynesian Cultural Center is on the mountain (mauka) side of the highway.
After the evening show, most visitors and tourist buses follow the reverse of this route back to Waikiki, turning east on the H-1 freeway and following the exit signs to Waikiki.
Shuttle service from Waikiki can be purchased with Polynesian Cultural Center (PCC) tickets. You can add transportation to your PCC tickets in the Shopping Cart when you checkout. Otherwise, feel free to contact our Reservation Center at 800-367-7060 for assistance.
