What You Can Expect
When you arrive, you’ll receive your tube. Following a brief safety orientation, it’s time to finally get wet! The flowing current that originates near the top of Mt Waialeale—one of the wettest spots in the world— gently carries you through the tropical waterways. The calm waters don't require paddling, making it an easy ride for most fitness levels. For close to an hour, you’ll zip in and out of tunnels, including one that’s almost a mile (1.6 km) long. Flip on your headlamp to examine the hand-dug tunnels and consider the labor that went into creating the waterways across the 17,000-acre (6,880-hectare) plantation.

Following your relaxing ride, get back on solid ground to enjoy a 45-minute lunch amidst the remote beauty of Kauai’s backcountry. Your picnic may include pita sandwiches, chips, cookies, and cold drinks. Take a dip in a natural swimming hole to cool off before saying goodbye to a seldom explored side of one of Hawaii’s most beautiful islands.
