My family and I had a great time. My kids loved being able to see and feed the butterflies. They wanted to go again as soon as we were done. It was fun and informative.

Beautiful Butterfly Farm, a Must-See Visit on HI-30!

Do not pass this on the way to Lahaina! The tour is interactive, family-friendly, and in a small group (only two other families). It isn't crowded since only tour guests are allowed inside. Our guides are knowledgeable and passionate about habitat restoration. We took lots of photos while we held caterpillars, mantises, and butterflies for a few minutes to observe and appreciate them. The tour is a delightful, tranquil break from water activities and worth the stop!

Not what I expected
Gary_C

I was expecting to see butterflies that are native to Hawaii. The only butterflies were monarchs and swallowtails, which are on the mainland. The ladies doing the tours were very knowledgeable, friendly, and did a nice job.
icon Response from Host , Jul. 2022
It is unfortunate that this guest seems to have missed the first 15 minutes of the tour which is when our guide would have clearly explained that the two incredibly rare Hawaiian native butterflies only occur above the 3000’ foot elevation in Hawaii and do not survive well down at sea level or in the hot Olowalu sun which is why we do not raise them at the farm. Their host plants will also not grow at sea level. As far as we are aware, there are no breeders in the State of Hawaii and we do not mention anywhere on our website that we breed these two so we’re unsure as to why this guest would think we would. It is unfortunate that the multiple types of the butterflies that we have on the farm were overlooked (the guide would have gone through these different types in the initial speech also). As we also explain, the main purpose of the butterfly farm is to teach through hands on learning, to teach how important all butterflies are to pollination here in the islands and as the Monarch is in 99% decline throughout the US, we focus on these butterflies the most as they are very happy to be hand fed and handled by both children and adults alike. We encourage all guests to arrive on time so that we can share all of our butterfly knowledge with them and to have a fun, hands on learning experience.

This was a great experience, hands-on if you or your children are willing. It’s a beautiful garden with a noble cause. It was extremely educational as well as fun to have such an intimate experience with the butterflies.

We had so much fun. Make sure to get there early there’s several farmer’s markets, food trucks and more to stop at before! Then you get to go through two exhibits and hold some beautiful little critters. 10/10 recommend.

A+ experience especially if you have younger kids or someone who can’t do hard core sports. Really informative and fun. My 8 year old LOVED holding a butterfly on her finger. It’s also a shorter experience-like 45 mins so that’s great too.

We had a wonderful time! They were so informative, we got to see caterpillars, different types of butterflies, preying mantasis’s, and we got to spend a good amount of time in each “tent.” We got to “hold” several butterflies and it ended up being on one of the best things we did in Maui.
