I’m not a real fan of coconut, but loved this tour. Real education on the coconut and it’s importance to he native Hawaiian people and about the tree itself. Great panoramic views. Opportunity to taste coconut water at 3 stage of coconut growth; try the coconut meat and make your own coconut milk to take back. The time flew by and Ryan was an awesome guide. Highly recommend.

We were expecting a tour of the coconut scenery and tasting, but this tour tuned out to be far more than that. Kai was really knowledgable and passionate about coconut and preserving the environment in Maui. We learned all aspects of coconut and were sold on the benefits coconut offers.

The tour was designed to be interactive, Kai expected us to interrupt and ask questions at any time. We enjoyed the tasting part of the tour and learned about the taste difference between coconut at different ages. The coconut milk making workshop at the end was hands on and we got to keep the big jar of coconut milk we made!

Definitely something you won't want to miss on Maui.

The family who run the farm keep the tour groups small, and it makes a huge difference. The tour was fantastic!! Not only is the farm one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen, the information was incredible. What a joy to learn about something from someone who is so passionate and knowledgeable. This tour surpassed all of my expectations and I encourage anyone to go and visit. We were able to ask as many questions as we wanted, and we also got to taste a lot of coconut!! Truly, the best thing I did while I was in Hawaii.

Punakea Palms Coconut Farm is a legitimate "must-do" when on the West Side of Maui. Located in Lahaina, this is a great experience to learn more about natural farming and all about coconuts! Kai details all the uses for the various components of the coconut in a passionate and interesting way that makes you lose track of time.
To top it off, you try coconuts at different stages of development and close by making a quart of coconut milk to take home. Even better, it's a simple process to make once you get back home (which we did!)
