    Beautiful way to spend a morning.

    Abel Tasman Kayaks

    Brilliant day out! We did the afternoon half day. Lunch was supplied with refreshments. The highlight was ripping out the sail and making a raft with our kayaks. We got some speed on! Daz, Jack and the team were fantastic.

    Great experience!

    My mom and two best friends came to visit me while I was living in New Zealand for a year and we decided last minute to do the kayak tour. It was such an amazing time and our guide was wonderful! We had a lovely morning and would recommend for anyone. Only wish we had gone a bit further...next time we will book a full day!

    Wonderful way to spend a day

    Really enjoyed the trip - beautiful sunny day - nothing like a cup of hot coffee and a delicious lunch on a beach in one of the most beautiful parts of NZ!
