    Please Note: This is an unguided rental. Kayaking is an adventure activity that is not without some risk please check the weather forecast as this activity has weather constraints. Abel Tasman SUP Sit on Kayaks assumes no responsibility for personal injury or any other losses which may arise from participation. Any costs associated with damage to equipment, or assistance services required, e.g water taxis, will be passed on to the hirer.

    Single kayakers must be experienced and use a leg rope.

    Bus transfers, pick up and drop off services are not included

  • If you are one person traveling on your own we may hire you a kayak for the period providing you are experienced and you use the leg rope. We prefer to use double kayaks because we have limited numbers of single Kayaks we try to keep them for occasions where there are 1, 3, 5 persons etc. The single Kayaks are lot harder because in the double you have twice the horse power and the doubles carry momentum much better. Single kayak hire is for experienced kayakers only

Would highly recommend.

We met in the parking lot by the sea, the man was immediately helpful and kind to us. He helped us get our kayaks down, offered us drybags and went over how to use the kayaks. He advised us on routes and safety things and sent us on our way. When we came back he was very kind to take our kayaks out of the water from us and load them. It was a good price and the caves by split apple rock were awesome, I only wish we had rented them longer. Kayaks and paddles were in good condition and suitable for the sea. Good value, go with these guys!

Awesome Day

Great family day out- easy and hassle free trip. Took about 30 minutes to the split apple rock, then chilled at the beach near by. Highly recommend hiring your own kayak.

Average

The experience has potential and it’s a good choice to support the locals as the it’s a local couple who run it however they need to work on it. We booked 3 single kayaks and were given a double and had to wait for a single to be available. Upon querying this the man had quite an attitude with us even though it was just a question. Didn’t push it because we’d already got a cheaper price. He gave us a short briefing on how to get back in the kayak if we were to capsize and not much else. We had to drag our own kayaks out to the water as the tide had gone out so much, obviously not his fault but no offer of help or any other solution. I suppose it’s a hit and miss
