This amazing day begins when you meet your excursion guide just next to your Lahaina cruise ship pier. You’ll board comfortable, and air conditioned transportation and have a scenic 20 minute ride to your first stop at the stunning Maui Tropical Plantation.

Once you are at the plantation you’ll board a tram and enjoy a fully narrated ride through amazing tropical beauty. The plantation is covered in flowers, vines, and trees along with flower orchards and fruit fields. You’ll see where they grow mangoes and papayas, coffee and sugarcane, kalo (Hawaiin taro), coconut and macadamia nuts. All your senses can get involved since there are often samples at the end of the ride.

During the 40 minute tram ride, you will be treated to a coconut husking demonstration and learn more about the benefits and uses of coconuts. After the tram ride, there will be time to browse through the Kumu farmers market and the large gift shop where there are usually some local homemade or locally grown samples for tasting

Then you’re off to see one of the island’s most famous attractions, the Iao Needle located approximately 20 minutes away in the 4,000-acre (1618 hectare) Iao Valley State Park. Here, you will take a pleasant walk on a 3000 foot (914 meter) paved path to one of Maui's most striking rock formations, the 1,200 foot tall (365 meter) Kukaemoku or Iao Needle. Over millions of years, erosion has carved it into its current day form. Lush green vegetation has covered most of it giving it a nice green coat.This is a tower that was formed naturally by lava and is covered in vegetation. It rises to 2,250 feet above sea level and is just spectacular to see, and photograph. It’s important to mention that this formation is also quite important to native Hawaiians. To them this formation represents the beginning of all life and the cooperation of the two gods, Kane and Kanaloa.

Next you’ll take a scenic 20 minute drive down to one of the highest rated attractions on the island, the Maui Ocean Center. You've seen the beauty of the land here, but just wait until you see what’s under the water’s surface. Known as “The Aquarium of Hawaii” it has some great areas to visit including The Living Reef, which is where the center carefully works to keep the coral healthy because it is necessary to act as a buffer from the sea. You’ll learn there are 7,000 species of marine life that can only be found in Hawaii and much of that can be seen here.

You’ll get a chance to visit Turtle Lagoon and see the green sea turtles, possibly basking in the sun. Then head over to the Hammerhead Harbor and the open ocean wonders. Possibly one of the best experiences is the 750,000 gallon (2,839,058.84 liter) tank that offers a 240-degree acrylic tunnel view of a carefully grown coral garden that is home to countless marine life. There is even a fun touch tank to experience!

After your visit to the Maui Ocean Center, you will board your transportation to return to your meeting spot just next to your Lahaina Maui cruise ship pier.

This tour was so complete since we go to see beautiful places from Lahaina on land and also on the sea. This was a small personalized tour. The pick-up and drop off is right at the cruise ship terminal and the guide was very patient and knowledgeable. If you are looking for a tour that shows you abit of everything, then consider this.

The tour was fantastic, our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The Ocean Center was a thrill for my children, but they also had fun at the plantation, it was nice to see then run in an open field and it was a relief to be away from the crowded cruise excursions. Thank you for helping make our Hawaii cruise a great one.

We enjoyed a lot this excursion. The plantation is very nice place to visit. The tram tour is a must and the guide was very knowledgeable. At the Maui Ocean Center, I had the awesome experience to see sharks swimming over the top of me at the underwater tunnel. Totally recommended!
