Come explore the highlights and secrets of West Maui! This experience starts with driving through the historical plantation town of Wailuku and visiting an ancient volcano that possess a spectacular rainforest valley known as Ioa Valley, and is home to the famous Ioa needle. Due to many years of erosion and rainfall, Ioa valley has become a stunning lush green valley with a river running through its valley floor all while hosting many different species of flora and fauna. While enjoying the botanical garden you will learn about the history of this grand valley and the Hawaiians that first settled here along with one of the bitterest battles ever fought on Hawaiian soil.

The local gift shop has island made vodka, coconut candy and many other fun items! We then climb up a west Maui slope to enjoy stunning views of the central valley from this King Kamehameha look out. Hear the story of how these grounds hold a historical structured connected to the famous Frank Lloyd Wright and Marilyn Monroe.
