Tubing along historic sugar plantation flume canals lets guests experience Kaua‘i in a totally different, totally fun new way.
The Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas are a slice of Hawaiian paradise unto themselves, but when staying on Kaua‘i, there might be no more unique way to get out and explore the island than by enjoying a mountain tubing adventure.
Grab a tube, don a headlamp and coast down the gently flowing waters of Līhu‘e Plantation’s hand-dug flume canals and tunnels, a historic irrigation system dating back to circa 1870. This ingenious aquatic network that once brought water to the island’s vast sugar crops now shows off the lush beauty of Kaua‘i’s emerald-green interior in a way only a lucky few get to experience.
Glide by expansive vistas and through breathtaking scenery, and experience the fascinating tunnels along the way, lit by your headlamp. At the end of your adventure, enjoy a delicious lunch and refreshing dip in a natural swimming hole.
The approximately 40-minute (very scenic) coastal drive from The Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas is well worth the journey. This one-of-a-kind touring adventure is both relaxing and fun for guests age 5 and over, and a must-do when visiting Kaua‘i.
