What to Expect

Paddle Board Rotorua has a unique flavor of tourism where we treat all of our tours as if we were taking a group of friends on a fun adventure and creating the best time possible. This tour is possibly the only glow-worm paddle board tour in the world, allows you to be immersed in nature and is fun and exciting with our friendly guides and staff.



Discover New Zealand's magical glow worms on this evening Paddle Board Tour. Appreciate the convenience of a pick up and return transfer from town as your friendly guide takes you past the iconic Redwood forest before you arrive at our base on the shorelines of Lake Okareka. Soak in the evening light as you 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 small hidden caves home to galaxies of glow worms. Take ample time to enjoy the magical moments inside the small 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 new friends through the wonder of this experience.
