Is it best to get tickets for Catamaran, Polynesian Cultural Center before arriving in Hawaii? Also, where do you purchase the 4 day bus pass? Are there people at the hotel who can help with these arrangements?

Does anyone know if the prices on the website for the Polynesian Cultural Center includes transportation? Also, what time does it return back to Waikiki?

I believe you have to purchase the ride $22: polynesia.com/transportation/motorcoach.html

You will probably be fine booking them when you get there...although often you will find better deals online than if you are there in person.

The catamaran that pulls up at the beach in front of your hotel? (Outrigger Waikiki, yes?) ... just go outside and talk with them. Very informal. They keep a list, and it's good to plan ahead if they are busy. I forget when you all are going.

PCC - go on-line and look at their packages. You can purchase on-line ... and include the transportation at the same time.

If you are staying for the evening show -- and most everyone does, you'll get back to your hotel about -- 10:00 p.m. (more or less). That's another good reason to use their van or bus. The drive takes about a hour.

I'm sure that the concierge or excursion desk at your hotel can help you, too -- but it would be best to familiarize yourself with the PCC through the wesbite. There are several threads about the PCC that you can read if you scroll down.
