Visiting the Maui Tropical Plantation
The Tropical Express gives riders a look at Hawaii’s native plants and fruits found in Waikapu Valley and the greater West Maui Mountains. The tour is 45 minutes and loops around the lagoon to travel through parts of the Plantation that are otherwise inaccessible. There is also a 15-minute break included in this tour when the tram stops at a hut so visitors can try their hands at coconut husking and watch a demonstration.
The cost of the tour is $20 for adults, $10 for kids between ages 3 to 12. Kids who are 2 years old or younger don’t need to be paid to ride the Express. The daily tour times are on the hour from 10 am to 4 pm.
