Kohala Ditch rides rolling again

The popular activity formerly called "Flumin’ da Ditch" is back in action on the Big Island.

Rides down the Kohala Ditch waterway are now offered by Kohala Ditch Adventures, owned by ATV Outfitters. After a mountain kayak journey and hike, participants paddle through 10 tunnels and seven flumes before riding out along a macadamia nut orchard. The ditch was originally built to transport water to sugar cane plantations, and floating down the waterway has been a popular activity for residents and visitors. The previous guided tours ended after the 2006 earthquake.

For more information, visit or call 889-6000.
