The glow worm kayak tour is normally $130, so it’s a great deal on Groupon. Pack inset repellant (we had neglected to do so and had to borrow from other visitors). Was a lovely tour, very relaxed and lots of fun. The guides we had were fantastic and made it a fun experience.

About The Boat Shed Kayaks

Established in 2000 by experienced kayaker Richard Clark, The Boat Shed Kayaks is a one-stop shop for kayaking needs. Paddle into hidden inlets on Karapiro trips to visit waterfalls and stop for a swim or picnic, or take in the scenic views along the Waikato River with guided tours and options available for varying fitness levels. Opt for a kayak adventure to see glow-worms shining from canyon walls when night falls while enjoying New Zealand wines or hot drinks and tasting cheeses over a campfire, with a follow-up drift downstream using only the light from the glow-worms. The company offers kayak hiring and purchasing, as well as training courses and stand-up paddleboarding activities.
