About Kauai Backcountry Adventures
Our one-of-a-kind Kauai activities include tubing down an old sugar plantation irrigation system, through open canals and several tunnels hand-dug circa 1870. Or you can soar through the air on our 7-line zipline course, traversing the side of a mountain down to a lush bamboo grove. Through it all you will learn about our island’s history, culture and natural environment. Come join us and take home memories for a lifetime!

Our adult family enjoyed the ride down the water troughs. Perfectly safe, you can stand if you fall off the tube. It was fun and relaxing. Lunch was great too. Nice day all around.

My wife and I were in Kauai for our honeymoon and booked both ziplining and mountain tubing trips with KBA. Both experiences exceeded our expectations and were amazing. Huge thanks to all of our hosts: Drake & Marcus (zipline) and Pancha and Malachi (mountain tubing)!...More

The rapids are so minimal and the whole thing is slow. There's no thrill, if that's what you're looking for. I guess it would be good for kids, but to be honest, even they looked bored.

Concur with others. The actual tubing/water time was about an hour but it’s a decent ride to get to the start, plus they provide lunch so there’s time to eat and they stop the bus for a quick (awesome) view of the mountain... More

It’s not that far away but way too far to walk. Taxi or UBER would be the best bet. Unless you want to drive around and explore the island afterwards, trying to rent a car would take you longer than just taking a taxi or... More
