If tubing through tunnels sounds fun to you (and you don’t mind getting wet), go on an adventure with scenic visits as your backdrop! PHO TO: JEFF S ANNER PEDAL THE COCONUT COAST 35
in the village of Hanamā‘ulu, KAUA‘I BACKCOUNTRY ADVENTURES takes full advantage of its location on a magnificent parcel of former sugar plantation land with ZIPLINE RIDES and DITCH TUBING . You can soar through the trees attached to a zipline, or float in an inner tube down a 133-year-old irrigation ditch, navigating tunnels and flumes along the way.
Tubing is easy. You simply spin and float through glassy open channels surrounded by beautiful greenery. Then, when you enter the ditch’s five handcarved tunnels, you’ll turn on your miner’s headlamp.
Kaua‘i Backcountry Adventures has exclusive access to more than 17,000 acres of historic Līhu‘e plantation lands in Kaua‘i’s interior. Visit kauaibackcountry. com for details.
