Take in the spectacular views along the coast of the Astrolabe area in Abel Tasman, with 12 pristine beaches and an Island sanctuary to explore this will be a day of creating lifelong memories.

Setting out from Marahau you will guide yourselves along the forest-fringed coastline stopping where you want for photos or to simply relax and enjoy a picnic. Visit Adele Island sanctuary where an abundance of native birds fill the air with birdsong and New Zealand Fur seals like to hang out.

Amazing experience for a first time freedom Kayak

This was my first time going out on a kayak without a guide with me so was initially very nervous. However, the staff were amazing and put me at ease. We were given a detailed safety brief and time to ask any questions. We were given a map and full details on timings and the best places to go. We were also given contact numbers if needed. We were dropped off and picked up and specified points. I felt extremely safe out on the ocean. We went around Adele island where we saw seals and got surrounded by dolphins which was a surreal experience!
