Owner description: the Boatshed Kayaks,was set up by Richard Clark in 2000, on his property on the edge of Lake Karapiro. We offer a number of different kayaking and stand up paddle board options from our great waterfalls trip to our evening glow worm experience, just flick through our website to get a better idea for whats available. Lake Karapiro offers an exellent venue with sheltered waters and 15 km of lake to explore. making it a safe and beautiful environment to try something new. our guides and instructors are fully qualified in both flat water and graded river paddleing so if your wanting to explore some of the lower sections of the waikato river between cambridge and hamilton youll be in safe hands. The Boatshed kayaks is also involved in multisport training and hire and has been training grade 2 paddlers for over 8 years, with a huge number of paddlers experiencing their introduction to kayaking through The Boatshed.The ethos at the Boatshed has always been on getting people out there paddling, young and old, and therefore growing kayaking as a sport or recreational activity.

這趟螢火蟲之旅真是太令人難忘了! 天氣好時還可以仰躺在小船上望眼星空, 難能可貴的機會是還能夠親近大自然且近距離的觀看螢火蟲美妙生態, 適合親子一同參與也合適情侶浪漫的選擇.
First time visiting New Zealand, what a fabulous outdoor activity in the evening, kayaking through the canyon with the most amazing view of clear sky and its full of beautiful stars. Most importantly, the spectacular blue/green-ish lightings from the glow worms just right above our head on our way floating back. We had the tour on 28th Feb 2016 whereby very luckily the weather was great, our tour guides-Sean&Jed did an excellent job with their friendly and helpful assistance. If you are concerning about no accompany to go with, that wouldn't be a problem at all! I was by myself while everyone else is in a group of two, Sean and I went on a double kayak together instead of a single kayak on my own due to safety purposes. He's a very easy going person and knowledgable about kayaking, glow worms..etc. Such a wonderful experience, definitely worth it!

We thoroughly enjoyed the glow worm kayak trip guided by Sean and Darby. The kayaks were easy for the beginners and comfortable to sit on. Smaller group made it so much more enjoyable. Thank you guys!

Really loved our kayak through the canyon to view the glow worms. An easy kayak suitable for absolute beginners. Had full confidence in our capable guides. Enjoyed hearing a little history of the ares as we kayaked. Looking forward to our next trip, think it will be the kayak to the waterfalls.

What a wonderful evening we had. Kayaking through the canyon, wine and cheese followed by chocolate. Then the best part. Floating back through the canyon in the dark with only the glow worms to light our way. Looking up to see the overhang full of glow worms. Awesome!! We stayed at Muffins B and B where their hospitality was the best we have ever experienced. So good in fact, that we stayed another day just to chill out and escape the reality of our busy lives.
