In January 2003, Kauai Backcountry Adventures opened a section of the ditch and tunnel systems that used to irrigate large sugar crops. Today they are used for exclusive tubing tours. The water system winds through some of the lushest and remote land on the island. It includes stunning views of the mountains and Waialeale Crater. Hop in one of their four-wheel-drive adventure vehicles and explore the former plantation, deep into Kauai’s pristine jungle interior. Then grab a tube, a headlamp, and plunge into the gently flowing canals. Float through several exciting tunnels and flumes only lit by your headlamp. At the end of your grand adventure, you will be lead to a charming picnic area, for lunch and a refreshing dip in one of Hawaii’s natural swimming holes.
