First you will board a 4WD transport vehicle as we drive into the interior of Kauai, crossing old sugar plantations all the while your guide will explain the history of Kauai.  Once your arrive at your start point get into your tube. (Note: Minimum Age is 5. Minimum height is 43 inches. Maximum weight is 300 pounds.  Tour requires: Name, Age and Weight of each participant.)

Your tubing adventure begins down ditches, tunnels and flumes that were hand-dug by Chinese laborers to deliver water from the rainforest to the thirsty sugar cane fields near Lihue.  This isn’t whitewater adventure but it isn’t the lazy river at your local waterpark either. The water is typically knee deep and current moves you along fast enough that no paddling is required.  Tube ride is about a mile long and at the end your guide serves up a picnic lunch at a beautiful natural swimming hole.
