An amazing experience! The lake during sunset, beeing surrounded by nature, paddling in the dark and then entering this beautiful cave full of little lights. We even got to walk in another small cave (the board doesn’t fit). The equipment is very good, boards, life jackets,

Easy pick up in central Rotorua, short drive to lake with a very friendly & knowledgeable guide. So peaceful, easy for first time paddle boarders. Paddle put in the setting sun & watch the glow worms in 2 caves after dark. Truely spectacular

Really intimate group size, tour guide was real friendly and welcoming. Caves were quite small which meant you felt really close to the glow worms - we were glad we didnt choose a bigger tour of caves elsewhere in NZ. Also the paddle boarding was cool to try for the first time.

This was great! Tour was well put together, and the experience was like no other. Our tour guide gave us plenty of time to admire the caves, look at the stars, as well as let us get some good paddling in. Shuttle was a little bit late picking us up, but at the end our driver

Our guide Danny was very friendly, told us a bit about the area and helped us to master the paddle boards. We paddled calmly until it got dark and then we saw the magic: tiny magnificent glow warm cave you can reach only from the water. It was very relaxing and unique experience
