We visited here years ago and wanted to see what was new. We enjoyed browsing in the store, walking through the gardens taking pictures of flowers, and took a break on an "island" enjoying the mountain view and ducks in the pond.

Well kept , well run farm here. Superb tour guide, made the tour a fun educational tour. Learn what tree "juicy fruit" flavor originated from. You can even do Zip Line at this location. See several fruit and nut crops that are raised in Hawaii explained here.

Beautiful grounds, interesting Tram Ride, 2 Zip-Line companies, an organic produce market, wildlife and local vendors. Something for everyone, our Tram Driver was a delight!! Witty and she was funny! Worth the stop-

The tour was super short. It could have easily been a walking tour. The longest part of the tour was the coconut husking demonstration. There were only 5 people on the entire tram so I can't imagine a full tram of 100+ people having to get on and off the tram just to watch the guide husk a coconut.

We went on this as a part of the NCL "Best of Maui" shore excursion. Glad we did. Fun to see the various plants and ride the train. Enjoyed light lunch. Very leisurely experience.

Although this is really for tourists it is still a really nice place to visit and a great break from the beaches. Beautiful grounds a tram ride. The tram is a little pricey but we really enjoyed it with our 9 year old and 3 year old. Gives good general info about locally grown food. Also, do not miss the... More

I know what you're thinking... a plantation? I can see a farm just about any time I want at home, why do this? We met a local friend here while visiting with family, and it was probably one of the kids favorite parts of our trip. My daughter (18 months) was in awe nearly the entire time. My nieces, ages...

The Maui Tropical Plantation is a nice little place to stop outside of Wailuku / Kahului. It is free to tour the main part of the grounds and shops, but you must pay to ride the tram, which gives you extra views of the various kinds of fruits, veggies and trees that can be grown in Hawaii.
