Waka Glow Worm Tour

From NZD $99.00
  • Duration: 2 Hours (approx.)
  • Location: Omanawa
  • Product code: WAKAGWT

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. Once at the lake we get into our safety gear, having an instructional brief and heading onto the lake at twilight.
