Big Kanu Glow Worm Tour

This tour is great fun allowing you to appreciate the beautiful scenery, birdlife and glow worms from your seat in our Big Kanu. Taking place at Lake McLaren, it is only a 25 minute drive from Tauranga’s CBD. Launch the Big Kanu from the lakes edge and paddle together through the calm waters towards the head of the lake.

A narrow, high-sided canyon is the home to thousands of glow worms scattered like the stars in the night’s sky. Learn about the life cycle and peculiarities of the glow worms from our knowledgeable guides. Our tour departs once a day before sunset so we are able to admire the luminescent glow in full darkness.

The tour is suitable for all ages with no previous experience required.
