This unique tubing adventure takes you back in time to the sugar plantation era. It takes place on private lands that are usually closed to the public. A short drive takes you to the headwaters of the four-mile-long Hanamaulu Ditch system, where you will begin your two-mile tubing expedition. Grab a tube, don a headlamp, and jump in for a leisurely cruise. Witness one of Kauai’s spectacular engineering feats as you float down the tropical waterway consisting of open ditches, tunnels and flumes, all of which were engineered and hand-dug circa 1912. At the end of your tubing adventure, you will be whisked away to enjoy a delicious snack at an enchanting picnic area complete with a pristine swimming hole. After swimming and picnicking, you’ll return to the cruise ship pier. Notes:Wear your swimsuit under your clothing; bring a towel, sunscreen and a hat.

Terrific adventure for all ages. You sit on top of large (truck size) very comfortable inner tubes (made from the same material as they make zodiacs) and float down these irrigation ditches, that are actually beautiful, fern covered, spectacular water plumes. You sit on the tubes and float pretty quickly (4 mph). The scenery was gorgeous. The guides were very supportive and funny and kind. They provide padded gloves and helmets with headlamps. You go through tunnels carved through the lava 150 years ago, turning on your headlamps as directed by the guides. It was thrilling and relaxing at the same time. I wanted to start all over and do it again at the bottom.
