There’s Nothing Better Than Hawaii’s Natural Lazy River On A Summer’s Day
What do you get when you combine the vibe of ride along a lazy river and Hawaii’s iconic lush, tropical mountain landscapes? A natural lazy river through an enchanting jungle on the island of Hawaii. This is Flumin’ Kohala, and here, you will experience the adventure of a lifetime.
Located near Hawi, on the northern tip of Hawaii Island, a series of tunnels and canals were built to bring water to nearby farms, but are now used for an entirely different - totally unique - purpose.
Let Flumin’ Kohala take you on a magnificent journey through an old sugar cane plantation irrigation ditch system. Imagine your favorite water park lazy river and multiply the experience by 100 – it’s that awesome.
The entire tour lasts three hours - and starts in Hawi, where you’ll head out on a 40 minute ground tour of the area, visiting scenic overlooks and sites on the way to the ditch.
Once you’re on the private property in the Kohala Mountains, you’ll embark on a ten minute nature walk across a walking bridge that passes directly over a 150-foot flume that carries water to the start of the tour.
Now, here’s where the real fun begins: your guided rafting and kayaking tour through ten tunnels, across seven water flumes, and past vibrant native plant life.
Guests paddle and coast on four-person inflatable kayaks along three miles of the historic irrigation ditch - through thousand-foot tunnels dripping with spring water, high above rushing streams, and across the mountainside via elevated flumes.
Along the way, you’ll learn about the area’s history and folklore, all while soaking in the paradise around you.
