What to expect
Join Paddle Board Rotorua for an incredible guided sunset and night paddle board tour. After meeting your guide and other tour group members you will 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 hidden caves home to galaxies of glow worms. Take ample time to enjoy the magical moments inside the 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 milky-way fills the sky. Back at the base you will feel like you have been in another world for the past few hours and will likely have made some new friends through the wonder of this experience.

Tranquility
Mar 2021 • Friends
This trip was amazing. The lake at twilight was super flat, no wind, warm and beautiful. We were in good hands with tour guide Nev who showed us the gloworm caves and guided us safely on the lake. Would do this again for sure

The best way to see a sunset
Feb 2021 • Couples
We had a magical evening on the water. It was so calm, the glow worms were so bright, the stars were shining and it was just so lovely to be in nature like that. It was also our first time paddle boarding and the guides were great at teaching you how to do it before heading on to the water

Simply Stunning
We had never tried paddle boarding before but really enjoyed every aspect of this activity from learning to paddle board, seeing the glow worms and everything else. Nev was an excellent teacher and guide. Definitely recommend checking this out if in Rotorua!

Nev was such an awesome host and guide. We had a fabulous time from pick up to drop off, everything was very calm and relaxing. It was fantastic to have the option of kayaking over paddle boarding and the glow worms and caves were breath taking. A must do tour for anyone visiting Rotorua, we look forward to coming back.

Amazing experience, the best way to see glowworms
Dec 2019
One of the best evenings we've ever had. Me and my brother really enjoyed, he had never paddleboarded before but picked it up straight away. The caves with the glowworms in are very personal, get to see them close up and have penalty of time to see them. This tour you get to see a the brilliant nature of new zealand .

Awesome experience, magical glow worms, and amazing guide!! 10/10
Sep 2020 • Couples
Really enjoyed the glow worms and paddle boarding. I have never paddle boarded before and the patience and support was awesome - Nev taught me everything I needed to know and he was so fun guiding us around the beautiful caves. 10/10 recommend for beginners at paddle boarding (like me!) or those who are really good (like my partner).

We did it in September and it was a little chilly - I wore a Merino base layer top under the wetsuit and was totally fine. My partner only wore swimming trunks (but he’s used to the cold). I wasn’t cold but I would recommend wearing something under the wetsuit (Nev also recommended it - and it was recommended in the booking info).

I really enjoyed this experience - if you have any evening free, it is by far the best twilight activity I have ever done, the glow worms are magical, the banter and guiding from Nev is just awesome and the lake is stunning!!
