Journey into the dense jungle of the Kohala Mountains for a kayak float through the Kohala Ditch System. Built in 1906 to funnel water to sugarcane fields, this series of channels and tunnels that ribbon the rainforest is a fascinating way to explore the history, flora, and fauna of the Big Island.

Climb into an all-terrain Pinzgauer for an off-road expedition up to your launch site high in the hilltops of the Kohala mountain range. Hike over a narrow, man-made ravine, strap on your flotation belt, and set off for a watery adventure through the jungle in an inflatable kayak.

Pass through 10 tunnels and cross over flumes as you wind your way down 3 miles (5 km) of this intriguing, 17-mile (28-km) aqueduct. Drifting along at a leisurely pace, soak up the smells and sounds of your lush and verdant tropical surroundings.

As you paddle down the peaceful channels, learn about the history of the Kohala Ditch System and the island’s folklore from native Hawaiian guides—the century-old project itself has its fair share of ghost stories, and some of its longer, darker tunnels might just make you wonder if the rumors of hauntings are real.
