Mountain Tubing on Kauai

Double Lines

Take to Kauai’s historic waterways in a mountain tube and discover a whole new way to access the island's tropical interior.

Over a century ago, laborers hired by the Lihue Sugar Plantation hand built the Hanamaulu ditch system. This series of canals and tunnels was designed to bring water from the waterfalls and streams of Mt. Waialeale to provide irrigation for the large sugar cane fields in and around Lihue. Although the Lihue Sugar Plantation has since closed down, these amazing waterways are still here and have adopted a new life as one of the most unique water adventures in Kauai.

The gentle flow of water offers a fun and relaxing ride through mountainside flumes and tunnels that emerge to stunning views of beautiful and remote locations. Be sure to bring sunscreen, bug repellent, water friendly shoes and clothes you don't mind getting wet. Contact Kauai Backcountry Adventures in Lihue for more information.
