This is a truly unique experience; while you can see glow-worms elsewhere in New Zealand, and you can paddle a sea kayak in many places around the world, this is the only place when the two combine for a magical evening. The tour is great fun with great refreshments, beautiful scenery, fantastic birdlife and awesome glow-worms. Paddle to the mysterious glow worm canyon, our tour departs once a day before sunset. Upon arrival, the canyon is completely dark, as required to see the glow worms to the best effect.
