My wife and I did the zip line for our 20th Wedding Anniversary. It was truly awesome. Surprised to see so many senior couples doing it! Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The views were breath taking.

If you are looking for a non traditional activity to do on the Island of Kauai, this is your answer. You will be greeted by a friendly knowledgable staff, who will take great care of you. The ride up to the back country is a another fun adventure in itself. You will gracefully ride a tube through the canals gently spinning to view all areas of the beautiful Kauai Island. Go and don't wait!! Make your reservations today.

This was the first thing we did in Kauai, and I am so glad we did it! We got into Kauai at 1am, so we were tired the first day. We arrived for the tube adventure and were met by really nice people who gave us everything we needed (helmet with headlamp and gloves). We had a 30 minute van ride up the mountain to the entry point. Along the way, Maka had us all introduce ourselves and helped us get to know each other, the staff, and Kauai. Then we got into the water and into our tubes for a fun and relaxing adventure. This is not strenuous at all. You literally float for a couple hours, through some tunnels and some seriously beautiful landscape. If you get claustrophobic, steer clear. This is not for you. One of the tunnels is 3/4 mile long. There was a very young girl who cried a bit. Maka took charge of her and got her through the tour with apparent little difficulty. You get sandwiches, chips and cookies after the float and then an open air truck ride back to their shop—the ride is kind of amazing. We REALLY enjoyed this excursion. Michael was one of our guides, and he shared a lot of info about Kauai that we enjoyed. I definitely recommend this to anyone who doesn’t have claustrophobia.
