Maui Tropical Plantation & Wailea Marriott Resort

I was surprised to find that a pineapple plantation would actually be enjoyable.

There’s a tonne of ducks (and one random chicken) on the property that you can buy proper duck feed for in the store for about $2.

Tram Tour
The tram goes through the plantation, showing the variety of products grown and sold there.

One of the tram stops was a fun coconut opening demonstration. Which was executed a lot more smoothly than our own attempts previously made in Lahaina.

At the end of the tour you get a complimentary Maui pineapple taster.  It’s strange because it tastes like pineapple but without the acidity.

We wrapped up the evening with dinner at The Mill House next door. It was a little bit fine dining and the portions weren’t large. But it was very tasty.

It was an expensive experience, but you can always justify it by saying ‘you don’t do it every day’ and have a really lovely time.

WORTH IT?
Hmmm yeah. It was a lot of fun.
I’m not sure how entertaining it would be for little kids though, except for feeding the ducks, that was fun!
