Waka Glow Worm Tour
- Duration : 3 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Tauranga
- Product code : GWTW
The tour is great fun with beautiful scenery, birdlife and awesome glow-worms. The tour takes place at Lake McLaren, a 25 minute drive from Tauranga’s CBD. The glow-worms are situated in a narrow high-sided canyon at the top of the lake, not in a cave, so our tour only departs once a day before sunset so we have full darkness. The tour usually takes 3 hours to return to Waimarino. Once at the lake we enjoy the refreshments of a cheeseboard, fruit platter, crackers & dips, wine & juice on the lake edge before getting into our safety gear, having an instructional brief and heading onto the lake at twilight.
For groups over 10, we recommend the Waka (canoe) where your group will be paddling together as a team on the lake. This option is perfect for groups who wish to see glow worms but aren’t too bothered about the paddle side of things as it is a lot easier to paddle in the Waka than in Kayaks. It also acts as a great team building activity.
