What to Expect
Travel reference:

Combine two amazing Tauranga experiences in one evening with this excellent-value tour!

This is a truly unique experience; while you can see glow worms elsewhere in New Zealand, and you can paddle a sea kayak in many places around the world, this is the only place where the two combine together. This glow worm kayak tour is great fun with great refreshments, beautiful scenery, fantastic birdlife and awesome glow worms.

Leaving in the evening from Tauranga, your journey into the tranquility of the mysterious glow worm canyon begins with a stunning viewing of Lake McLaren. On the edge of the lake you will enjoy wine from the award winning Mills Reef winery, delicate New Zealand cheeses and refreshments. At dusk, after some paddling tips and safety briefing, your kayak tour guide will lead you onto the lake to watch the sun set over the rolling hills.

You'll then gently paddle on your kayak into the night and discover the magic of the enchanting glow worms as your professional kayaking guide leads your group and provides a fascinating and informative commentary about the life cycle and peculiarities of the New Zealand glow worms.

This is a truly magical experience that you don't want to miss - book with us today!
