Mountain Tubing On Kauai
Down Historic Canals And Tunnels
For something truly unique, float in an inner tube down the hand-carved waterways of a historic sugar plantation surrounded by towering mountains and the Waialeale Crater! Gently flowing waters will carry you down the former irrigation system of the Lihue Plantation that traverses this magnificent, remote landscape. Flumes and tunnels along the waterway will make sure to entertain the whole family. This is understandably one of the most popular tours on Kauai, so make sure to book well in advance to make sure you don’t miss this memorable adventure.
The Mountain Tubing Adventure is perfect for all those age 5 and over, and in generally good physical condition. The gently flowing waters, beautiful scenery, flumes and tunnels are combined for a relaxing, fun and fascinating experience. And when we say we are unique, we mean it! This is the only tubing activity of this type on Kauai.
Your mountain tubing adventure has exclusive access to the historic irrigation system of the former Lihue Plantation. This ditch and tunnel system that once irrigated vast sugar crops had been unused since sugar was taken out of production in 2000. This water system runs through some of the most beautiful and remote land on the island. It includes spectacular views of the mountains and Waialeale Crater. The waters which originate near the top of Mount Waialeale, one of the wettest spots in the world, are channeled through ditches and tunnels hand-dug by plantation workers over a century ago!
