On a tram, tour a 60-acre (24-ha) working plantation and learn about the tropical fruits and vegetables that are cultivated in the area. Combining lush greenery, colorful flowers, and expansive views, this tour is a visual wonder.
Centrally located, this working plantation is nestled between Maui's 2 dominant peaks—the West Maui Mountains and the dormant Haleakala volcano. From the tram station, board the plantation train and get ready for a guided tour that takes you through breathtaking scenery and lush farmland.
Ride through the plantation and listen as your guide provides narration about food production in a tropical climate. Sugarcane, coffee, and bananas are grown in some of the larger fields, while in between there are papaya, mango, guava, and even taro—the starchy root vegetable that Hawaiians have used to make poi for centuries.
The plantation houses a myriad of palm trees, some bearing coconuts. At one stop, get off to watch a coconut demonstration, where a professional shows you how to pick the perfect coconut, open it, and enjoy. Sample the milky-white meat and sip some of the delicious milk before getting back on the tram to continue your journey around the plantation.
