Waikiki - Pearl Harbor & luau's

We'll be staying at the ResortQuest Waikiki Beach Hotel. We'll want to get to Pearl Harbor early, as we depart for our cruise that day. What do you suggest as far as transportation? Any idea how much a cab ride might run us? There will be 8 in the group, should we just break into two cabs or arrange for a limo?

Also, would you recommend a luau for our first night there, or something else? We'll be in Waikiki on a Friday night, arriving around 4:00 pm.

Thank you

Cabs will be about $40 each way for each cab. So it would be about $160 for 2 cabs. So with 8 people you might be better off with a limo.

Or you could rent a couple of cars for the one night. It would cost less than the cabs.

Plus you could tour the island a little before you get on the cruise ship.

I don't know if you could make it to a luau your first night.

Polynesian Cultural Center is best done if you have all day. Paradise Cove & Germaine's luaus are about an hour from Waikiki.

You could make it in time for Creation: A Polynesian Journey. It is a production rather than a luau, but they have good food & the best Polynesian dancers on Oahu. Pilialoha Gaison, Miss Hawaii 2006, is one of the dancers. It is in an inside ballroom at Sheraton Princess Kaiulani Hotel.

Dinner starts around 5:30. If you don't think you can make it in time for dinner, then you can get cocktail show seating. Same show, you just get seated later.

Info about the show & a coupon.

If you would rather attend a beach luau, them do so on one of the islands where you will stay overnight.

This link has some of the names & numbers of limo & cab companies on Oahu:

You can probably Google the name of some of the companies for websites.

Do the car rental places offer shuttle service to the pier?
