  1. This tubing adventure thru the old irrigation canal’s is a tour you will not want to miss! We enjoyed it so much the first time we did it again 2 years later.

  2. It was OK. Obviously, most people enjoyed this. I did it because I’ve done just about everything else in Hawaii, especially Kauai. I guess it’s all relative. I’m a water sport junkie, so this was not a unique experience for me. Seems like a good family trip. I wasn’t surprised to read about the fellow who got sick from swallowing the water. A good word of caution.

  3. We really enjoyed our tubing experience. Ben, our guide was full of Information about the building of the canels and about Kauai. I would recommed this adventure to everyone of all ages Bob and I are in our early 70’s and had no problems at all.

  4. This is one of the most fun things to do on Kauai. We recommend it to people all the time. The folks running it are awesome. It’s such a unique adventure, not scary (I’m chicken),and just plain fun for all ages.

  5. My family has enjoyed this excursion multiple times over the years. Our last tubing trip was in 2018 with a group of family ranging in age from a 14 year old neice to my 80 year old mother and father-in-law and they all had a blast. My sons (now early 30’s) want to do it every time we are on island together and can almost do the guides speeches and stories by heart. Thenguides have always been great by the way. It is just as you reported a fun, family friendly (not overly expensive) adventure that you will remember… along with the “refreshing” water. This is one of those bucket list items that you will want to repeat! Mahalo

  6. We did the tubing one year. It was a blast. A little chilly first getting in, but was great feeling shortly. The staff was a riot

    1. I loved my trip with my family in the lava tubes. At first I was intimidated by what I was expecting but now count it as one of my favorite excursions in Kauai! The guides were so friendly & helpful as well.

  7. Have done this adventure three times & loved it every single time. The guides are all a blast….pure aloha. Ride up was fun with good mix of information on sites and personal interaction. Have also done the Kauai Backcountry Adventures zip line a few times as well. Equally wonderful time. Can’t wait to do this again.

  8. We’ve done this trip each of the last three years we were in Kauai, and plan to do it again when we revisit in 2023. It’s one of the highlight excursions on Kauai. Guides are super friendly. A great, relaxing , fun excursion. We went up to the headwaters of the canal system by the “Jurassic Park waterfall” (a very treacherous drive by the way) and saw where the concrete canals start. I’ve always wondered if it is possible to float tube all the way down from there. Probably not, but maybe BOH knows.

    1. Hi Rob.

      We aren’t aware of any way to float from the headwaters down. Maybe someone else has more information. But as far as we know, this is all that is possible.


  9. Took this adventure several years ago and had a blast. Highly recommend it. I wear eyeglasses and had no problems. Helmet and heavy duty gloves were provided. I had packed protective beach slip-ons that were sturdy so I wore them instead of tennis shoes. There was a shed at the picnic area at the end of the trip where I changed to dry clothes I had brought.
