Student groups on Island excursion won’t want to miss this wonderful, colorful and lively traditional Hawaiian feast - no first trip to the Islands would be complete without experiencing the extravagance of authentic Island hospitality! Luau are generally catered towards visitors, so round up your travel pals, slip on your flip flops and come hungry, expecting a truly grand celebration of rich Island culture, delicious food, and fabulous entertainment. You’ll feast to bursting on a classic Hawaiian spread of succulent kalua pig (pork slow cooked in a traditional pit oven), yummy lau lau, (beef, pork, chicken, or fish wrapped in sturdy taro leaves), hearty poi (Polynesian staple starch made of taro) and delicious haupia – a sweet coconut pudding dessert. Lose yourself in the spellbinding mystery and magic of earthy Island rhythms as lovely hula dancers tell beautiful stories of Hawaiiana with their elegant, graceful movements and the scent of burning torches and plumeria fills the tropical night air. Frequently, luau will highlight greater Polynesia by featuring skilled Samoan fire dancers and wild Tahitian dancers with long, flowing hair and flamboyant costumes. If you’re not careful you may even find yourself doing the hula in front of the entire luau crowd!
