We were looking for a fun activity for our last morning on Kauai and this fitted the bill perfectly. We took a cab to the Kauai Backcountry Adventures warehouse where we signed in and were given a helmet and gloves for the tubing trip. From...More

This place was easy to find. Large parking lot! Staff was very friendly. We’ve zip lined before but this trip was a lot more personable. The tour guides spend a lot of time getting to know everyone and giving us the history of the island...More

I am really kind of surprised by all of the awesome reviews on this. For the love of God DO NOT go on a rainy, chilly day. You will be uncomfortably frozen. The guides tried to make it fun I guess other than stopping us...More

Mountain tubing. Probably the most fun we have had in ages. The water is extremely refreshing, the scenery is breathtaking, the staff is comprised of some of the nicest, funniest, people I've ever met. It's ALWAYS a good sign when you've got such enthusiastic, friendly...More

Took my (~60) year old mom to zip lining for the first time with Kauai Backcountry. They’re the best, she loved it. Not scary, gorgeous views over the river. We paired this with Lydgate chocolate tour as the times work out and the locations.

Myself and my two teenagers did the zip line adventure. Drake and Michael were professional, friendly and just downright funny. Would recommend this to anyone wanting an afternoon not on the beach. Stacy, Race and Lake from Nebraska.

You are in the water about an hour. 80% is in five tunnels. The ride is great! I do not like cramped spaces, but the tunnels are quite big. The last tunnel is done with the lights out and it is weird as you do. It feel like... More

A lot of guests that come on, either purchase rash-guards as souvenir or rent a wetsuit. Depending on the time of the year, it can get a bit chilly.

Height is not an issue, as long as he is under 300lbs, he is good to go. Total tour time is 3 hours, 1 hour tubing, 1 hour for lunch, and then 30 minute drives up and down the mountain.
