Maui Pineapple Tour with Lunch
$85.00 BOOK NOW
Get to know the agricultural history of Maui and have a delicious tasting on this Maui Pineapple Tour with Lunch. From the middle 19th century, workers were imported from China, Japan and the Philippines to work in the sugar cane and later the pineapple fields of Maui. Longing for a new life with a promise of freedom, they came by the thousands. Camps were set-up by the plantation owners to house the workers. This created the Plantation Era on Maui. The days were long and the work was hard with the tropical sun beating down hour after hour. Yet, the workers endured and in doing so found a better way of life complete with the freedom they sought.
The pineapple fields upcountry are the only fields that remain in Hawaii. Due to the low cost of imported pineapple from other nations, the industry met a foe, it couldn’t work around. The fields today are hybrid pineapples known as Maui Gold. They are smaller and sweeter than the average pineapple.
Each guest on this Maui Pineapple Tour with Lunch receives a free pineapple and you can also purchase pineapple approved for shipping straight from the packing plant much cheaper than the any store or at the airport. Lunch is served at the General Store. At one time, this was the plantation camp store that was a favorite hang-out of the workers and families of the Haliimaile Plantation Camp. The store now is a restaurant that specializes in the cuisine from Maui during the plantation days. The executive chef is Beverly Gannon whose culinary skills are legendary.

This was one of the very best parts of our tourist travels around Maui. Terri, our tour guide, was awesome! She gave us so much more information than I ever thought I needed to know about pineapples! The fields were amazing, and it was really cool to see pineapples growing from the newly planted crowns, to the baby pineapples, to the full-grown ready to harvest fruits. I recommend springing for the distillery tour and the lunch. The tour is pretty groovy, and the lunch is delicious. This tour made for a really great day.
Ukulele Tim gave an amazing tour! He made it such a fun experience. Our 11 and 15 year old boys were laughing most of the tour and said it was the most energetic pineapple tour they have ever seen (compared to a tour on Oahu last year). Thanks for the awesome experience...I would highly recommend.
The tour is a great time. The tour guide, Tim, was very friendly and knowledgeable. He could answer any question you had and made everyone feel at home. The farm is very cool and you do get a great view of the bay on a clear day. If you're looking for something interesting and relaxing, this is a great choice for any day.
Just wonderful! Educational and so much free pineapple!!! 😄🍍🍍🍍I love that the farm is so traditional and yet sustainable. Knowledgeable guides even teach you how to grow a pineapple plant at home! High recommends!
My family and I loved this tour. Mike was our guide and he was super knowledgeable and entertaining. We got to watch the harvesters and eat fresh pineapple in the field. And taking some pineapples home was a treat as well.
