The Kohola Ditch Adventure is a great way to see some interesting countryside, which you cannot see from the rental car! Not only that, the tour allows you to step back into the history of the Big Island.
Despite a previous review, I believe that the guide, Hula, did a great job and did not talk too much. She was friendly, funny, outgoing and knowledgeable about the area. She described the human history and construction of the flumes and ditches (the irrigation system that you kayak through), and provided many personal stories and anecdotes, making it a very personal and memorable tour.
While you aren't technically kayaking, the inflatable kayaks seat 4 people and you basically use your paddles to keep from bumping and scraping along the sides of the waterway, as the current keeps your boat moving at a decent speed.
I would recommend the early morning tour, if possible!
