What You Can Expect
In 1790, King Kamehameha conquered Maui at Iao Valley to unite the Hawaiian Islands, and changed the course of Hawaiian history. Amble around Iao Valley State Park and view the exhibits at the Hawaii Nature Center. The 2,250-foot (685-meter) Iao Needle looks over Iao Stream, and the steep cliffs of the West Maui Mountains afford scenic views.
Next, discover the rich Hawaiian agricultural history at the Maui Tropical Plantation. You'll learn about Hawaii's 14 most-popular flower and food crops, such as papaya, guava, mango, taro, macadamia nuts and coffee. See a coconut-husking demonstration, feast on the delicious fresh fruits and capture the pastoral beauty of Maui.
Choose to extend your shore excursion at the Maui Ocean Center, where you’ll get a glimpse into Hawaii’s vibrant marine life. See amazing live coral displays, get up close with Hawaii’s beloved green sea turtles, and view the sharks, stingrays and thousands of species of tropical fish!

Great guide and enjoyed the trip. We would recommend the Lahaina Shore Excursion to other traveler.
We had a fantastic tour guide who provided excellent personal service, we visited a number of "extra" places (including a budist temple and the Lahaina High School) because we had some spare time. Karen, our tour operator was extremely friendly and knowledgable. The tour was one of the highlights on our vacation.
