Maui Tropical Plantation Tours

Maui Tropical Plantation
Set amid 500 acres (202 hectares) of farmland in Waikapu Valley, Maui Tropical Plantation is a working plantation and agricultural theme park where more than 40 different crops and native plants are grown and harvested. Located on the grounds of a former sugarcane plantation, the park offers a glimpse into Maui’s agricultural past.

The Basics
Visitors have several ways of exploring the plantation grounds. Take a tram ride around the beautiful grounds to learn about the island’s agricultural past and Hawaii’s native plants and tropical fruits, watch a live coconut-husking demonstration, zipline above the plantation, or shop for seasonal organic produce, including tasty tropical fruit, macadamia nuts, and other made-in-Maui products. Admission to the park is free, although each attraction or experience has its own fee, allowing travelers to customize their visit. The plantation tour is included on the Maui Value Pass, along with entry to the Atlantis Maui Submarine Adventure, Maui Ocean Center, and Bailey House Museum.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Maui Tropical Plantation is a must-see for families.
  • Don’t forget to bring sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat.
  • Much of the plantation is wheelchair accessible.

How to Get There
Maui Tropical Plantation is situated in Central Maui in the town of Waikapu, about 30 minutes from Wailea and 40 minutes from Lahaina by road. The easiest way to get there is to drive.

When to Get There
Maui Tropical Plantation is open daily. The summer season (July to September) sees the least rainfall in Maui, making it a good time to experience the plantation’s outdoor attractions. Be sure to book ahead if a cruise ship is in port—the plantation is a popular excursion. 

Dining at the Maui Tropical Plantation
Come hungry, because the plantation grounds offer several culinary experiences. Sip a small-batch Hawaiian coffee at the Mill House Roasting Co., tuck into a multicourse meal at Maui Chef’s Table, dine on farm-to-table fare by a quiet lagoon at The Mill House, or satisfy a craving for something sweet at The Scoop, known for its  ice creams and smoothies, all freshly made with plantation-grown ingredients. 

Address: 1670 Honoapiilani Highway, Waikapu 96793, USA
Hours: Open daily 8am - 9pm
Admission: Adults: US$20, Children (3-12yrs): US$10

The Road to Lahaina

The Road to Lahaina

star-5
Lahaina was once the capital of Hawai’i, and a bustling harbor town that saw upwards of 400 whaling ships per day. It is now a favorite Maui destination for its wonderful beaches–great for surfing and snorkeling–and its lively downtown area littered with boutique shops, restaurants, and museums. Since Lahaina is on the dry side of the island, we’ll visit some more exotic locations along the way, including a sacred burial ground and a heritage park tucked high in the West Maui Mountains, lush botanical gardens, and a beautiful plantation property. Your day will be complete with the best of Maui, including beaches, mountains, gardens, dining, shopping, and numerous photo opps!
