Maui Luxury tours - Discover Maui upcountry in style

Ocean Vodka Distillery, Surfing Goat Dairy & Lavender Farm Tour

When visiting Maui, you just got to go on this tour. It is fun, exciting, educational, and a great place to relax and escape the bustling city life. Oh, and did I mention Vodka?

Yes, you heard it right. For the very first stop, we visited the Ocean Vodka Distillery and Farm. Here you can learn how tedious the distillation process can get (in all the best sense of the word) plus you get to see the breathtaking stretch of sugar cane that is processed to make our all-time favorite friend Vodka. How the machinery work is simply astounding and you’d be surprised to find out that everything runs on solar energy! Everything is made organic, and all ingredients handpicked even. You can be 100% sure that no pesticides or chemical substances are found on their produce. It’s inspiring to know that not all innovations are out to feed on Mother Nature. The nicest thing about this tour is that you get to go to the Martini garden where you can see fresh, local ingredients and get a taste of their delightful Vodka. But don’t just take my word for it, be sure to enjoy this firsthand.

Next, we got to see the Surfing Goat Dairy farm. If you love cheese, you just got to go here – no kidding! You get to see adorable farm goats and get more acquainted on how the whole cheese process works. It’s informative and fun at the same time (made me want to feed the goats the entire day). A big bonus for this trip was meeting Charlie. He’s super cute and just plain irresistible. But don’t ask me why or who this intriguing Charlie is, get to meet him yourself!

I’m personally a romantic. So our next and final stop was really memorable for me – the Lavender Farm. Enjoy serene and tranquil sceneries by taking a Guided Walking Tour that typically takes around 30-40 minutes. They also offer a Guided Cart Tour but be sure to book in advance because these carts are pretty popular. Get to see the stunning fields of lavender that stretch far into the horizon. Feel free to enjoy it with a special partner too.

The tour ends with a delectable lunch set that is both filling and satisfying – definitely the best way to call it a day. Make sure to place an order for your lunch choice while making a reservation.  It is optional at extra cost.  This tour is a blast to experience by yourself but can be extra fun with family and friends. Get to experience the finest works of Mother Nature right here in Maui by taking this one-of-a-kind tour. You will definitely enjoy it – I sure did.

Make sure the tour is available before you come to Maui. Here is where you can check availability

Have fun and let me know how did you like it. Aloooooha.

Maui Treasure Hunt Adventure - the best for your family on Maui!

Maui Treasure Hunt adventure

Forewarning: This blog is going to contain one muddy adventure!

When my mom asked me what I would like to have for my 11th birthday – I instantly knew the answer. No it wasn’t Disneyland (I’m not the type to like humanoid mice), I wanted to go somewhere that felt like a real jungle adventure. At first I said I wanted to go to the Amazon but of course no parent would permit that. We live in Pearl City, Hawaii, near the historical Pearl Harbor, so my dad suggested we should go to Maui instead. It has the jungle feel plus it’s not going to rob my father three months of his paychecks. So I was game, my two brothers were really happy to go as well.

This was going to be our first time on Maui as a family and because we don’t exactly know how to go about the place yet, we asked a tour company’s help. I really knew my mom was trying to give me the best time for my birthday and so she went ahead and booked us for a Jungle Treasure Hunt Adventure! The word jungle really tugged on my adventurous spirit and I really wanted to jump up and down out of excitement.  My mom said they also had it in a Savanna version or you can enjoy it together with an Ocean Center Package (1 week free entrance) but since we’re only staying for a couple of days and a jungle adventure is what I came for in the first place, I decided to save the other two the next time we came to visit again.

It was fifteen minutes to 9:00 AM when we arrived at Park n’ Ride Kahului – the meet-up spot. The weather was perfect and my energy was so high I could hike for days. They gave us fair warning of the huge possibility that we’d get down and dirty (literally) so we had working clothes on. I was so overwhelmed I couldn’t help the grin on my face from showing. Ready, set, and go! We’re off to start our family adventure.

We first did a bit of hiking through deep forests. The trail was not too long or too difficult; it was just about right to break out a good sweat – ideal for every member of the family to enjoy (even my 7-year old brother handled it splendidly!). The thrilling view of the towering trees and the natural sound of the forest were fascinating. The best part was having a goal to pursue. I felt like a real life treasure hunter: searching for clues, accomplishing tasks, and braving on waters. Because the weather was nice and sunny, we got to swim in a beautiful lagoon. That’s when I realized fresh water would win over pool water any time. We crossed a river and ventured into thicker greens. I was having the time of my life – and I was happy to see my sisters were too!

After a nice hike, we finally did it! We completed the hunt the moment we found the golden treasure chest! The contents of which I will not reveal (I don’t want to spoil the surprise) but it felt so fulfilling to have reached the goal.  I had an achievement photo taken with me and my family on it to commemorate the experience. And more than the treasure we found on the chest, that photo is what I treasured most. I still have it as a keepsake to remember my Maui trip with.

You must be wondering how old I am since I’m storytelling this experience as if I’m in my 90’s. Well, I’m not. I just turned 14 this year (would you find me on the picture?) and am looking forward to more Maui adventures! Maybe next time we’ll get to go on other tours as well. My mom is actually going deaf with my inquiries on when we’ll be going back so I think she’ll give up any time now. Well then, see you real soon Maui!
