Overview
More
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!

We had a great time floating down the mountain in the irrigation canals. Guides were fun and informative about other things on Kauai. Lunch was good.

We really enjoyed our time on the tour. Kyle, our tour guide, was very fun and knowledgeable. There was slightly more driving (in a slightly cramped van) than we expected, but overall we had a wonderful time.

This was a great float down a waterway for younger kids (under 10) or perhaps the older grandparents of the group. My niece had a blast but my kids were a bit underwhelmed. Definitely not a thrilling adventure for those who like to zip line...More

We did the 9:30am tubing adventure and it was nice because we got a lunch with it and we had the afternoon to go do other things. Honestly though, I don’t know that the time of day would make a huge difference in the tubing... More

Total of about 3 hours and, as someone said earlier, about an hour on the tubes in the canals. The guides are great and this was a lot of fun for our group of six.
