Hand-drilled and blasted over a century ago out of solid rock deep in the canyons of Kohala, The Kohala Ditch brought water and prosperity to the people of Kohala. Hundreds of brave men risked their lives, and many perished in its construction. To this day, “The Ditch” remains witness to a heroic feat of engineering skill, physical prowess, and, above all, human determination.
Flumin’ Kohala offers you a rare opportunity to explore this remarkable hand-wrought wonder and the pristine Hawaiian landscapes it crosses. Join them on a guided tour through three scenic miles of Hawaiian history. Safely seated in custom four-man kayaks, you’ll delve underground and float through thousand-foot tunnels dripping with spring water. You’ll soar high over rushing streams, and float across the mountainside via elevated flumes. You’ll quietly meander through thick forests by way of winding concrete channels. Go Flumin’ to see, touch, hear, and feel the hidden beauty of Hawai’i!
On your Flumin’ adventure, you will get wet. Please wear comfortable, water tolerant covered shoes. Wear clothing that can get wet.
Bring a towel and a change of dry clothing. A light jacket is recommended (did we mention that you will get wet?).
Leisurely paced, educational, fascinating and fun, it is the perfect Hawaiian eco-activity for families and groups.
Go Flumin’ and have an unforgettably unique Hawaiian experience!
