Mountain Tubing

Why not take a tube ride down the Lihue Plantation irrigation ditch and tunnel system? Traverse Lihue's old sugar cane plantation into Kauai's pristine emerald green interior and enjoy breathtaking vistas and spectacular scenery. A water system that once irrigated vast sugar crops on Kaua'i has been unused since sugar was taken out of production in 2000.

The irrigation system runs through some of the most beautiful land on the island with spectacular views of the ocean, coastline and valleys. Beginning near the top of Mount Wai'ale'ale (the wettest spot on earth), the waterway and ditch system winds through open canals, rushing flumes and mysterious tunnels.

So grab a tube, don a headlamp, and jump in for a leisurely cruise. Witness Kauai's spectacular engineering feats as you float down the tropical waterway consisting of open ditches, tunnels and flumes all of which were engineered and hand dug circa 1870. Glide on your tube through the underworld with a headlamp to lead the way. At the end of your tubing adventure, you will be guided to an enchanted picnic area for a great picnic lunch next to a natural swimming hole.

Finding an alternative use for the obsolete irrigation system is a win-win for everyone. It provides the consumer with the opportunity to experience an adventure on previously inaccessible land, and the plantation with revenue to keep their irrigation system current and in good operation.

The gently flowing irrigation water creates a tubing adventure perfect for all fitness levels. After a scenic ride to the top of the mountain, you can hop in your tube and away you go. This is truly a unique and memorable backcountry adventure for the entire family!
