Brad was our lovely tour guide on our southern adventure. We had perfect weather and an informative guide who was just the right balance of information, good humour and quiet time. We loved it and will definitely recommend!

A Special Experience

My family of five, including children aged 8, 12 and 14 had an amazing experience with Kahu Kayaks and our guide, Tom. The service and set up couldn't have been better and we thoroughly enjoyed the morning in Abel Tasman!
