Mountain Tubing on Kauaʻi

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

Over a century ago, laborers hired by the Līhuʻe Sugar Plantation hand built the Hanamā‘ulu ditch system. This series of canals and tunnels was designed to bring water from the waterfalls and streams of Mt. Waiʻaleʻale to provide irrigation for the large sugar cane fields in and around Līhuʻe. Although the Līhuʻe 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 Kauaʻi.

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 Kauaʻi Backcountry Adventures in Līhuʻe for more information.
