    The guide was great and the experience was magical and peaceful. I highly recommend this tour. Very small groups tour after the Center is closed so it's a special and quiet time to connect with the spirit of the islands.
    Lunar Legends Fun

    Great experience with a wonderful guide! A lot of fun for a nighttime event. Would recommend when in the area!
    Very relaxed and enjoyable experience - no one fell in!

    Looking at the pictures for this I was slightly concerned one of us would end up falling in but no one did! Smallish group (10?) with a guided tour throughout the village with no one else about (after hours in the dark). Had atmospheric lighting and our guide was sharing stories and comedic tails! Very relaxed and one can either stand up or continue paddle boarding kneeling down. I would recommend turning up with your swim gear on as although the evening weather was warm you didn't want your clothes to get wet if you did fall in. And the water wasn't that warm! The whole area is very large with lots of other activities/food trucks (although a bit expensive) available. It is worth spending some time here during the daytime and then taking part in the nigh kayak to finish off. Overall it was a great time and lots of fun. Recommended.
    Great time for All!

    Fatu was an amazing instructor, my family and I were visiting from Boston. All while we were excited to be out of the cold Fatu made our time Paddle boarding an experience to remember; he told us stories about the Demi God Maui and all the things he has done for man. Fatu made the experience funny, insightful, and memorable. Big thanks from Tj, Jason, Lindsay, and Hayden.
    Awesome experience

    Unique after close experience
    Bryan_H, Aug 2022
    Tour guide was fantastic, we enjoyed hearing legends of the islands and seeing the park after close all from a unique water perspective. Would recommend knowing how to kayak or paddle board first though!

    This was AMAZING! We did it at 9 pm, the Polynesian center was closed, so we were the only group there. Basta was an incredible guide , we enjoyed the cultural stories and history as well. This was definitely the best experience of our trip!
    Great time, worth it.

    Felt like we were the only ones in the whole park. Our guide was awesome, made the experience memorable for all the family, including our picky teens.
    Fun, funny, exciting, and informative
    Samantha_E, July 2022
    This was absolutely the best experience! It is definitely a must! I want to do it like 10 more times before i return home. The guides were amazing, it was funny, i learned a lot about the different parts of Polynesia and some legends, an absolute must.

    Very friendly group. We had a blast. Just make sure you take towels or change of cloths Incase you get wet under the waterfalls.
    A must do excursion

    They waited! We were running ten minutes behind due to car trouble and Fatu and cousin gumbo were gracious enough to call to see if we were coming and we indeed were at the front kind of lost. The actual lagoon paddle board experience was awesome it seemed intimidating at first but was pretty easy not to mention the water in the lagoon is waist height and i’m 5’4 so overall nothing to be scared of. The cultural center is awesome wish we would’ve spend more time there. Kids and adults can do this but they’re awesome enough to allow kids to do it alone w parents standing by if they don’t want to. Note canoes may be limited someone needed the canoe more than I so keep that in mind. Would do again. Great stories along the way.
    Loved the Lunar Legends!!
    Dennille_F, June 2022

    Amazing experience! 10 Stars!
    Toni_F, June 2022
    The Lunar Legends paddle boarding was Amazing! We had so much fun! This is one of the coolest things that I’ve ever done! Our guide was Fatu and he was awesome! There were two other employees that were there on the tour to help us as well! They all worked together, ever so kindly, to make our evening run as smoothly as possible! The sights were absolutely beautiful and so entertaining! The water was warm and the facility is really clean as well.
    Beautiful location....
    Bertha_R, June 2022
