Paddle Board Glow Worm Tour

From NZD NZ$150.00
  • Duration: 150 Minutes (approx.)
  • Product code: PNZCTZ


Arrive at our base on the shorelines of Lake Okareka as the sun is setting where you will meet your friendly paddle board guides and the other adventures joining your tour. Following the introductions you will gear-up and prepare for an epic night out with all necessary equipment provided. Your guide will then run through safety and detailed paddle board instruction before you take the helm on the water. Explore the shoreline and embrace the weather conditions of the evening as you follow your guide around the lake edge as night sets in. Once its dark, discover your adventurous side as your guide leads you inside incredible a small hidden cave home to galaxies of glow worms. Take ample time to enjoy the magical moments inside the caves before returning along your course in the dark. If it is a clear night the magic continues as the stars come out and the cloudy appearance of the milky-way fills the sky. Upon returning to the base you will feel like you have been in another world for the past few hours and will likely have made some new friends through the wonder of this experience.
