The Paddle Board Glow Worm tour is simply a must do tour in Rotorua. The combination of sunset paddle boarding and magical glow worm caves at night creates a truly unique experience. This tour is the perfect way to experience the unique fungus gnat creature known as the β€œglow worm” away from the mass tourism crowds at Waitomo Caves. The tour location is only 15 minutes drive from Rotorua. No experience is required and the tour is perfect for all skill levels. The evening paddle along the shoreline of the beautiful lake as the sunsets allows nature to speak for itself before the tour guide leads you to constellations of glow worms that can be easily viewed by everyone. The true magic of this tour has to be experienced to be fully understood. Wetsuits and water shoes are provided to keep you warm during months outside of summer. This is a very popular tour so we recommend booking in advance to secure your spot.
