Hubby and I visited Kauai Backcountry Adventures for a 3 hour tubing adventure. The excursion has great reviews, though if you follow the forums on TA you would find some mixed reviews. Don't listen to those people! The tubing adventure is a lot of fun...More

What a great way to spend a morning (or afternoon). The set up was really well organised and welcoming and everything happened right on time. I don't think I stopped laughing from the moment we all got on the bus for the journey up the...More

Easy, fun, and refreshing way to see some of Kaui’s backcountry. Our guides Lucky and Josh were great, providing local knowledge with good sense of humor. While actual time tubing is only about an hour, the drive to the starting point was beautiful and the...More

If you do nothing else on Kauai, do this. We had the best time. Just pure delight. Kai was a great guide and had vast knowledge of all things Kauai, so we asked lots of question and got great info and recommendations.

Had a great time with the crew at back county adventures. They really make your experience amazing and are very personable. The trail/river is so neat they really have put thought into it to make it a great time.

Something new to us, interesting and fun. Well organized, friendly, helpful staff. Take Dramamine or bonine if you are prone to motion sickness, the tubes tend to spin from time to time but that's half the fun.
