Waitomo: Glowworm Caves Guided Tour by Boat

1. Waitomo: Glowworm Caves Guided Tour by Boat

Discover New Zealand's natural wonder of Waitomo Glowworm Caves on a guided boat trip. Glide by boat through this underground complex, watching millions of tiny bioluminescent insects lighting up the rocky limestone. Explore this cave complex, including a chance to visit the Cathedral Cave on foot. The caves were formed over 30 million years ago and comprise 2 levels. The upper level is dry and includes the entrance to the cave and formations known as the Catacombs, the Pipe Organ, and the Banquet Chamber. On the lower level are stream passages and the Cathedral. Begin on foot as your local guide brings the caves to life with stories about their history. Then, board a boat and marvel at the light display as you glide silently through the starry wonderland of the Glowworm Grotto.

What people are saying about Waitomo

We were a small group of 6 with a very experienced and personable guide called Danny Devito who showed us parts of the caves not accessible to the large groups. It’s a must do in the North Island.

It was a beautiful experience. Staff were informative and friendly. We’ll worth the trip. The only down side was the cost. At the ticket booth the cost was half what we paid through this company.

Corey was a wonderful guide, kept us entertained and well informed. Funny too!

the guided walking tour was fantastic! highly recommend.

Great, guide was most informative, even for a kiwi
