Make this trip a priority regardless of budget. The guides know a lot about the island (including great happy hour food/drinks) and know how to have fun.

Fun for all ages! What a fun and relaxing adventure. A Kauai must for everyone. The guides make the adventure even better. We had Halo and Hollywood; crazy fun guys.

We were very excited for our family to go tubing. We have three kids ages 5,7, 11. The entire "adventure" is about 3 hours. The actual tubing is about 1 hour (maybe). We drove in a van for about 30-40 minutes to get to the actual tubing place and it was a very very bumpy and claustrophobic ride. Our whole... More

I definitely recommend Kauai Backcountry's tubing. Although the water was...invigorating (we went in early January)...the experience was great. Floating along the old irrigation canal, staring up at the blue sky and surrounding forest, with five tunnels to practice our vocal stylings, provided a great addition to our trip. A big thanks to the evil twin, Macy, for her history lessons... More

Highly recommend taking the family on this unique excursion. Tubing down the irrigation channels in the mountain was great fun. Not super fast but exciting all the same. The only downside is the long van ride to and from the tubing start point, but the staff and lunch were great. Joel and Erin were a pleasure. The whole thing was... More

Excellent care and knowledgeable guides sharing a fun tubing time. A unique opportunity to see the land from a different perspective. Using old sugar plantation irrigation system in a new way, a taste of history, plain fun, a bit of a thrill (but not too much, if you only like a smidge). Going alone felt perfectly fine and safe, too.

We had a great time tubing with our guide Kip. He was very knowledgeable. Book early as this activity fills up fast.

We live in Hawaii and finally made it to the tubing trip with these guys. I'm sorry we didn't go sooner. Lots of fun, great value. Excellent guides, shout out to Paul and Richard. Like nothing we've ever done. You get to tube down an old irrigation canal. It was very safe, but still offered a bit of adventure. Highly... More
