A great place to learn about the pineapple, various plants, and how it is planted and harvested. There is a gift shop with various samples of pineapple and other related food items.
We have been many times and always enjoy the scenery and the staff. Very people friendly. It's a good place to meet people from all over the world.

This was a pretty fun visit. Never knew there's actually a Dole Plantation until we visited here. When you arrive into the parking long, you will see colorful and beautiful pineapple leaves. I didn't know it until I looked at them closely. Many people would come here early like at 9am just to take pictures and walk around the outside.
There are many different sizes and ages of pineapples and a pond of Kois which you all can feed. I believe the fish food is 25 cents. Fish food machines are near the Kois. 25 cents will give you one hand full of fish food. You would be amazed seeing these Kois eat, I sure was.
There are tickets for riding the train throughout the field. I think it was $5-$10 per person. They do have a dole plantation maze, however, we did not get to experience that because it rained and that exhibit was closed. Disappointed. Overall, the visit was good. Perfecto for kids and family fun!

The Dole plantation is a great family activity. Its a perfect stop on your to the N. Shore for a Dole Whip! Let kids run and explore ( and maybe get lost) in the Pineapple maze. Walk the pineapple garden feed the Koi fish and enjoy the tropical surroundings. The train is a lazy ride through the plantation and botanical garden.

The Dole Plantation in the middle of the Island is not much to see unless you want to spend a big portion of your day at the "worlds largest maze"?. We took my son on the train ride which goes through a small pineapple farm which goes out 1 mile and back on the same track. Very little excitement. He was bored after a few minutes. You're mostly just sucked in to over priced destination related items. Skip it!.Recommended for:Family Travelers

The Dole Plantation is a fun place to visit. I came here to check out everything it had to offer. Well almost everything. It had a taste of their pineapple yogurt. I went through their pineapple maze. And, I took their little tour on the railroad. Everything was fun, and I would recommend you coming here at least just once to check it out.
Plus at the end of the railroad ride, they have us all a free sample of their yummy pineapples!
The pineapple yogurt was good, when we got there the line was super long. It could have been because a tour bus had just arrived. Not sure but that is my guess. After we took a ride on the railroad, the line was a lot shorter. Good time for us!
From there, we headed to the maze. It was fun finding all the landmarks they have you look for. Don't worry you won't get lost because they give you a map to use.
I enjoyed my time here, but I am not sure if it's something I would come to often.

Check out the maze -- and this makes a good place to stop and stretch and have a pineapple snack on your way to the North Shore (bathroom stop a plus). May not have the "wow" factor that other tourist attractions may have -- after all, this is the humble pineapple that has been a part Hawaii's history. Back in the day (and still in view today) are the pineapple fields. Back then, there were more.
