Overview

Discover the magic of a once-in-a-lifetime encounter with glow worms on a Waimarino Evening Glow Worm Kayak tour in the Bay of Plenty near Tauranga in New Zealand! Seeing glow worms is possible in other parts of New Zealand, and paddling a sea kayak can be done elsewhere in the world, but enjoying both at the same time for a truly enchanting experience can only be done here. Choice refreshments, stunning scenery, captivating birdlife and mysterious glow worms all make this glow worm kayak tour a trip of a lifetime.

Treat yourself to select snacks and delicate New Zealand cheeses paired with exceptional wine from the nationally acclaimed Mills Reef winery as you prepare for your trip on the edge of Lake McLaren. You will be fully prepared and briefed on how to paddle effectively by our kayak tour guides before you slide onto the still waters of Lake McLaren at twilight.

The glow worms are not found in a cave but at the top of the lake in a narrow, steep-sided canyon, so the kayak tour leaves only once a day, before sunset, to allow you to arrive in complete darkness (we provide head torches) to see the glow worms to the best effect.

In this fully guided kayak tour, our professional kayaking guides lead the way so you can truly appreciate being surrounded by a constellation of tiny glowing lights in the stillness of the night. Learn more about these amazing critters from the informative commentary we provide on the peculiarities and life cycle of the New Zealand fungus gnat (glow worm).

A truly enchanting experience you should not miss!
