Setting off from the pier, enjoy a scenic drive from Tauranga to Lake Rotoiti. Upon arrival, and after a safety briefing and instruction, you’ll step aboard your 2-man kayak. As you paddle out onto the lake, admire the beautiful surrounding scenery.
You’ll paddle your way into the glow-worm cave, a little known cave with a hidden entrance around 20 metres deep. Look around and admire the bioluminescent lights of tiny glow worms.
Afterwards, you’ll paddle across to the Manupirua hot thermal pools for a well-earned break. The pools are only accessible by water and offer a unique experience. Enjoy a 30 minute soak in the pools and relax your mind, body and soul. A light snack box lunch will be offered, before paddling back to base for the return drive to Tauranga.
