    Loved the hot pools, caves a let down!

    Kayaking & Hot pools were fantastic but the glow worm caves did not reflect the advertising in the booking, so disappointed in this... the kayak was just pushed into a tiny cave at the edge of the lake for a few minutes to be able to see the glow worms. It was great to see them but expected so much more in terms of exploring the caves.

    Great Kayak Tour

    Excellent experience, the guide (Rosa) really engaged with the clients and made the experience very personal! I would choose this tour if you're more keen for the kayaking and hot pools aspect as the cave is underwhelming compared to other locations but still very cool. The kayaks and equipment were in great condition, the paddles are feathered so easier to use if you have experience paddling.

    its alright

    It was a good kayaking experience with friendly staff. However, perhaps back luck, we were placed in a faulty kayak that kept steering right and had fallen far behind the group because of it. I would recommend that if it's raining to not bring your glasses along or secure them well (I lost mine)q. The glowworm caves are terrible small that it 'snuggly' fits one kayak in the cave to look around. The wonderful staff and the hotpools did make up for the poop experience at the beginning.
