If you’re planning a visit to Hawaii’s most populous island, few Oahu tours will measure up to the historic and enchanting Dole Plantation tour.

The historic Dole Plantation commemorates the origins of one of Hawaii’s largest companies. Starting as a union between railroad, sugar and seafood investors Castle and Cooke and the Hawaiian Pineapple Company founded by James Dole in 1932, Dole Foods became a superpower in US fruit importation and a staple of the Hawaiian economy.

Dole Plantation tours make for fun educational discovery tours for adults and children alike. The Plantation features eight different gardens you can explore to view the various plants that Dole harvests and exports, giving non-locals the chance to see tropical imports like coffee and chocolate in their natural states.

Visitors can also explore the world’s largest maze, a tropical labyrinth of 14,000 colorful Hawaiian plants that stretches over three acres of land. The maze contains nearly two and a half miles of plants and eight secret stations that lead explorers toward the magical center of the huge puzzle. Visitors can win prizes for the fastest times and have their names recorded on the sign at the maze’s entrance.

The Pineapple Express tour is a narrated two mile train ride that educates visitors on the history of the pineapple in Hawaii and the founding of Dole while passing through the dazzling scenery of the fully operational Dole Plantation and Oahu’s north shore. It’s a great way to relax and see the sights after exploring the rest of the plantation’s attractions on foot.

Finally, after a long and engaging day of dole plantation tours, stop into the Plantation Grille for an amazing, diverse selection of island favorites and traditional fare.

Tickets for each attraction are sold separately or bundled together in guided tours. Be sure to check out discount rates for group tours if you’re traveling with a school group or family so you can get the most enjoyment out of your Dole Plantation tour experience! Read more like this:
