For a fun look at Hawaii's famed pineapple industry, head to where it all started — the Dole Plantation. Take a narrated train ride and learn about all things pineapple. Then wander the picturesque gardens to see what sumptuous tropical crops grow here.
A trip to the Dole Plantation is a must for visitors to Oahu, and the Dole Plantation Pineapple Express train is a great way to learn about the history of the pineapple and the story of James Dole, pioneer of the pineapple industry in Hawaii. This two mile, 20 minute, fully-narrated train ride takes you past some of the North Shore's most gorgeous scenery, through a working plantation and past a variety of other tropical crops.
Included in your admission is the Plantation Garden Tour and audio guide. Visitors have the unique opportunity to get an up-close look at all the crops grown on Oahu's breathtaking North Shore—not just the plantation’s namesake pineapples, but also coffee, cacao, bananas, mango, papaya, and more. This self-guided tour of eight different gardens will appeal to all your senses.
