Glow Worm Caves Express

The Kawiti Caves are home to thousands of luminous glow worms and breath taking rock formations in the beautiful Bay of Islands. The first cave tours were established in the 1950’s by Te Tawai Kawiti, the great grandson of the Famous Maori Chief Kawiti who was instrumental in the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi. Today Te Tawai’s descendants have followed in his footsteps guiding thousands of visitors through the underground networks of stalagmites, stalactites and into caverns with names like the milky way, a cavern filled with glow worms that feel so close you could touch them. Enjoy a guided tour though this natural wonder all the while enjoying an entertaining commentary and learning about the rich local history.
