My 6 year old and I had a blast on the mountain tubing adventure. It's like a water park ride, but with nature and history built in. Special thanks to our tour guide, Hollywood, for taking care of my little guy and making sure we had an amazing experience. A definite must-see on Kauai!

What a blast. Second time two of us have done this and we couldn't wait to do it with other family members. They want to do it again and again.

We had never tubed a canal before and this was exciting, easy, relaxing fun! The guides were very helpful and made us laugh, a lot. Great adventure for young and old. No need to worry about the ride. The tube does it all for you. Sit back and relax. We went through tunnels and saw the most beautiful scenery from... More

Was concerned that water would be too refreshing this time of year but it was amazing. The guides were first class, funny and seemed to really enjoy their jobs. I will be back next year and will go again.

Husband, 10 yr old daughter and I did this last week. Guides very funny and keep it light. Water a bit chilly but never uncomfortable. Caves are fun and overall rude is splashy but pretty mellow. Recommend for a fun afternoon.

All the staff are helpful, fun, nice, and are knowledgeable about the island regarding where to go and what to do. Both experiences were worth our time and money. Zip lining was great. We did the 2 hour zip lining and I wish I did the 5 hour zip lining. BJ and Cam were perfect. They made sure we had... More

We didn't exactly know what to expect, but we had a good friend do it last year and said it was a must do on Kauai. He was right. Simply fantastic! I'm a bit claustraphobic, so I was a little apprehensive. Bottom line, no problem what-so-ever. We've been coming to Kauai for 31 years and never knew about the attraction.... More
