An evening of magic! This is a one-and-a-half-hour trip, perfect for experiencing a night paddle with your family or a group of friends. Our Bioluminescence kayak tour is an exhilarating night paddle where you can experience the magical phenomena of a light show put on by the smallest of these living sea creatures. Be one of the few to see this natural phenomenon known as ‘Sea Sparkle’ or ‘Marine Aurora’. At night Auckland’s bioluminescence waters around Okura come alive in bright glowing hues. Glide through the sea and watch as your kayak leaves a glittering wake behind you. Dip your hands in and see the sparkles latch to your hand as you withdraw it from the water. The swirling of your hand, every paddle stroke, and the rolling wake off of your kayak will all sparkle throughout the darkness. Many of our customers describe bioluminescence as an underwater laser show and liken it to Avatar’s ‘Pandora’! Our bioluminescence kayak tour is peaceful, breathtaking, and somewhat otherworldly! Come on an adventure with us to discover bioluminescence up close and personal! Enjoy a most wonderful 1.5-hour tour with friends or family or come along yourself, our friendly guides will make you feel comfortable and ensure you have a magical evening out on the water. Children: Children can attend, however, they must be accompanied by an adult. This kayak tour is suitable for children 11 years and over, although younger children over 5 are welcome if the conditions are suitable (each child must be accompanied by an adult). What to bring: For kayaking bring swimming clothes and warm extra layers– avoid wearing cotton, wear well-fitting wet shoes, and a lightweight windbreaker/raincoat is recommended. Also bring a towel, sunscreen, sunhat, personal medication, waterproof camera, and polaroid sunglasses. Once the tour has finished have a change of warm clothes, thermals, fleeces, etc.
