Iao Valley and Maui Tropical Tram

On this exciting Lahaina excursion, you will visit the Maui Tropical Plantation, a 60-acre working plantation where you can discover Hawaii's rich agricultural history. Enjoy a fully-narrated, 40-minute tram ride that takes you through breathtaking scenery and explores where many of the plantation's crops are cultivated. Along the way there is a stop where you'll learn all about coconuts and witness a coconut husking demonstration. You'll also see where sugarcane, coffee, Macadamia Nuts, pineapple, papaya, mango, guava and bananas are grown. There are plenty of samples for tasting and a gift shop selling a wide variety of Maui-grown goodies.

No tour of the Maui countryside would be complete without a visit to Iao Needle, the straight up pinnacle at the heart of the Valley Island's western range. This iconic, green-mantled rock outcropping is one of Maui's most recognizable landmarks. The Needle is located in the 4,000-acre Iao Valley State Park in Central Maui just west of Wailuku. There is a well-marked, paved pedestrian path leading from the parking lot to view Iao Needle and the ridge-top lookout provides incredible views of the valley.

Please Note: The Maui Tropical Plantation tram will not be running on November 22, 2018 and December 25, 2018. The tour will still operate on these days, however, guests visiting on these two dates will not experience the Maui Tropical Plantation tram ride.

Reviewer: Les Silvan
Our group was small and our guide was great. We saw the ship tours getting on these huge buses and were very happy with our group of 11 that was able to ask questions and hear answers.

Reviewer: Robert Stelter
The ride to Iao Valley took us through part of Maui which was interesting to see. The Valley was quite a site to see, towering peaks and gardens. The tram ride in the Maui Tropical Plantation was very informative. Enjoyed seeing how to peel a cocoanut. Our bus driver, Mo, was congenial and informative.
