Dolphins, penguins, and seals in one trip. Guide was amazing. Couldn't find a single fault if I tried.

Kayak and Walk the Abel Tasman

Tegan from Kahu Kayaks was an awesome guide. We were a family of 5 and managed to all kayak for 3 hours and walk out 9km. A short coffee and explore at one of the bays was a welcomed halfway break. The lunch we purchased was great and good value. I would definitely recommend Kahu Kayaks!
