  • Waitomo Caves 4-Hour Black Water Tubing Adventure

    1. Waitomo Caves 4-Hour Black Water Tubing Adventure

    Spend a couple of hours tubing in the dark, the only light from glowworms, on this wet adventure through sections of the Tumu Tumu Cave. Put on a helmet, boots and a wetsuit to take on the world-famous Waitomo Caves on a fun off-the-beaten-track experience. The trip combines the best elements of blackwater rafting, walking, climbing, swimming and tubing. The friendly staff will equip you with all the gear you need and provide a thorough safety briefing before you head to the entry of the caves. During your adventure, you will see spectacular cave formations and one of the best glowworm displays in New Zealand. You will spend about 2-hours underground during your 4-hour trip. You don’t need to be a good swimmer, as the wetsuits provide lots of warmth and buoyancy.

    It was hard work but everyone helped each other, the floating looking up at the glow worms was magical. A very worthwhile experience.

What an adventure

My partner suffers minor claustrophobia and mentioned this just as we show up for the Tour. He had a mini meltdown yours the start but Charlie the amazing guide talked him thru it and was very patient with both of us. I was very slow as I was really awkward in the provided wetsuit but Charlie did an amazing job of making the Tour run smoothly and helped me thru it all. Thank you
