My wife and I took the tour as a back-up event when our snorkeling trip was canceled due to weather. We are both so happy that happened. Kai is certainly passionate about his farm and his natural farming method. We were surprised to see, smell and taste the coconuts at various phases of maturity. The age group in our toor was from about 5 to 80 and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves. This is a really worthwhile tour!

What an unexpected delight! The owner of the facility gave us a personal tour of the farm. We saw Coconuts in various stages of development. He explained the whole process of working on a coconut farm. We were able to watch him make various products from coconut water to coconut cream and other delicious items.Our guide was easy to listen to and he answered all of our questions with a smile. We enjoyed the day as a family immensely

The other reviews raved about Ryan and this tour... and were spot on. Kai was gracious and set up an additional tour for our group of 8, when the existing one was full. Ryan was a tremendously welcoming and knowledgeable guide, who truly is passionate about the topic of coconuts. Our “tour” lasted roughly an hour extra, with Ryan sharing and answering every question we had. My kids and I will remember the information he shared long after the rest of this trip blends with memories of others.... I cannot score this highly enough. Thanks to Punakea Palms for such a wonderful experience!

Ryan and the owner’s son have wonderful aspirations to farm a 1000 tree farm. The tours help the economics of their business plan. The palm is truly a integral part of the history of the natives in this part of the world.

We’ve been coming to Maui for 30 years and thought we’d done it all. Happily we discovered this gem of a tour. Kai is passionate about his business and we learned so much. We left with a quart of fresh coconut milk and I made a delicious curry for dinner. What a treat.
