Flumin’ Kohala is Closed
On April 5, 2021 a large landslide destroyed a flume connecting Kohala Ditch to its largest water source and heavily damaged a tunnel which is now in imminent danger of collapse. Without this source of water, there is not enough water in the ditch to operate a kayak tour. Learn More >>
We have shifted our wonderful crew over to a new activity!

Hand drilled and blasted over a century ago out of solid rock deep in the canyons of Kohala, “The 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 offered a rare opportunity to explore this remarkable hand-wrought wonder and the pristine Hawaiian landscapes it crosses. Once a guided tour through three scenic miles of Hawaiian history. Safely seated in custom four-man kayaks, visitors delved underground and floated through thousand-foot tunnels dripping with spring water. At times, the kayaks soared high over rushing streams, and floated across the mountainside via elevated flumes. The flume quietly meandered through thick forests by way of winding concrete channels.
This leisurely paced, educational, fascinating and fun, was a perfect Hawaiian eco-activity for families and groups.
