Overview

Flumin' Kohala offers a truly unique way of experiencing pristine Hawaii. Via 4WD off road vans and our custom four-man kayaks, you'll float through tunnels dripping with spring water, soar high over rushing streams via elevated flumes, and quietly meander through thick forests. Go Flumin' to see, touch, hear, and feel the hidden beauty of Hawaii!

Such a unique and relaxing experience. You just float along old plantation irrigation canals and through tunnels while hearing stories about ancient Hawaiian legends and enjoying the lush foliage. A great way to end a hectic week on the island.
