What You Can Expect

Lahaina Shore Excursion: Tropical Plantation Tour and Iao Valley with Optional Maui Ocean Center

Iao Valley

After being picked up from Lahaina Pier, your Maui shore excursion starts with a drive to the Iao Valley. Walk into the lush forest and learn about the history of Iao, the beautiful daughter of Maui.

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! Professional naturalists will be at your side to provide commentary of the marine life of the Hawaiian Islands.
