Combining adventure, sightseeing and refreshments, this Evening Glow Worm Kayaking Tour in Tauranga is an ideal way to spend the evening. The journey begins on the shoreline of Lake McLaren where you can enjoy a bevy of locally sourced food and drink as the sun goes down on another beautiful day in Tauranga. Surrounded by wildlife including ducks and swans this is an incredibly romantic and enjoyable setting to enjoy before climbing into your dual kayak. Come dusk, you'll be led down the lake to watch the sunset from the water and then onwards towards the glow worm canyon. Under the leadership of a kayak tour guide, you'll be taken on a journey to see these mysterious and mesmerising glow worm aves. The canyon is located at the top of the lake and by the time you reach it, it will be night time. Once inside the canyon, you won't be able to see anything apart from what your head torch lights up before paddling into the lit up are the glow worms occupy. While in the cave you'll be taught about the canyon system and the life cycle and habits of the New Zealand fungus gnat (glow worms) as you admire their beauty. This 3.5 hour tour is suitable for guests over the age of 8 years and requires a moderate level of fitness to participate. All necessary equipment is included in the price such as double sea-kayaks, paddles, paddle-jackets and buoyancy aids, and head torches. Tours depart once a day in the evening or late afternoon depending on when you are planning to travel and guests can request accommodation transfers for an additional fee.
