LED Night Paddle Tour

Sorry but this tour has been suspended and is unavailable until further notice. This is due to equipment failures and freight costs on replacement items being significantly more expensive at present.

OVERVIEW:

 

Have you ever paddled a paddleboard at night in a lagoon? It's quite an experience cruising out in the safety of the lagoon at night on a board that is lit up by LED lights underneath it. 80% of our guests have never paddled before, and that is no problem. We teach you how to paddle so you are comfortable out in teh water. Our LED lights are amazing and as the twilight fades, our lights kick in and the feeling is surreal. It's a great family and friends activity. 

 You’ll paddle out to the reef and cruise along the inside of the reef to one of the motus (islets) inside the lagoon, we may raft up so you can swim in the dark and enjoy the environment, share a ghost story or two before returning to our launch point. 

You'll learn about our island, the habitat and what we are doing to protect this resource for future generations. As the Eco-Adventure Tourism Award Winner in 2020, you can trust that our tours are eco-friendly and that your safety is our number one priority.

HIGHLIGHTS

Learning to paddle board is easy and we teach you how a standup paddleboard is a very safe option for paddling anywhere. 

 

Ever seen a Sea Turtle at night? Occasionally we see these majestic creatures inside the reef. It really makes the paddle special. 

 

Night swims are always special, especially when you are looking back at the lights of Rarotonga from the darkness of the lagoon. 

 

Night paddling is simply amazing. It’s not your normal paddle activity. 

SAMPLE ITINERARY 

We normally meet on the beach in Muri.  Once everyone has arrived we conduct our safety briefings and size your paddle for you as well as giving you instructions on how to paddle efficiently. We then paddle on our knees over to Koromiri motu while it is still daylight and you can see what you are doing. 

 

We are flex from here, play some games while we wait for darkness to descend upon is. Depending on the paddle type we head into the lagoon and out towards the reef. We cruise along the inside of the reef enjoying the environment and looking back to the island’s lights. 

 

You are welcome to take your own underwater cameras and we post a few images on our own social media sites for you to share with friends.
