We visited for about 30-40 minutes on a Saturday afternoon to take a brief walk through their gardens (nice!), use the restroom, and get souvenir pressed pennies in their gift shop (my kids collect souvenir pressed pennies from various places we visit). Did not ride the tram because it was expensive and we were short in time. Saw a group... More

This is by far one of the loviest places on Maui. The plants all over the plantation are amazing, well kept landscape and beautiful! The gift shop is wonderful and very reasonably priced, A great place to pick up "not the same as everywhere else" souvenir.

Beautiful grounds, short but informative tram tour. Sit near back of tram so as not to breathe in exhaust. Extensive gift shop. Limited eats.

The tour guide we had was very fun and made the experience nice! We saw different plants like Jackfruit, banana, papaya etc. They also have a fruit shack outside where they have fresh fruit make sure to get there early cause by the tom we went (around 3pm) there was not much left! We were able to some delicious papayas... More

I recently spent almost two weeks in Maui. I took my 10 & 12 year old daughters to the Maui Tropical Plantation during our stay. The plantation is beautiful. It offers a 45 minute tram tour through the grounds. The guide gives history of the plantation and describes the cultivated plants. The best part of the tour is when she... More

The tram ride was expensive and not really worth it. There is a coconut husking demonstration about half way through the ride but it's not something you can't watch on YouTube and get the gist of it. Instead I recommend walking the beautiful grounds on your own instead. There's much to see and you don't need a tram ride or... More

Maui Tropical Plantation is going through a nice renaissance. The restaurant has been fitted out nicely, the ponds are all maintained quite well, the tram tour is definitely fun for the kids, the ziplines for the older keiki's and adults and the grounds have been maintained quite well. Definitely worth a visit.

My kids love coming here to feed the fish and the ducks. So much fish and if you look closely you could see the little turtle pop up. The ducks are so tame they eat right out of your hand. Beautiful view of the west Maui mountains and lots of flowers and plants all over the property.

Beautiful grounds! And great gift shops! I especially loved the Hawaiian made soaps. We didn't take the tram tour because we had to leave but would like to do it next time.
