Such a fun day!

Such a perfect day on the boat, hiking at Anchorage Bay, and kayaking with a cool group of people from all over the world. I’m happy I saw Abel Tasman all three ways!

Great experience supervised by amazing staff

Great adventure. Our guides were superb - friendly, supportive and knowledgable. We all enjoyed it very much and recommend it to anyone who is not afraid of water, as waves on the sea can make some more excited and some more anxious. Great views of the coastline make it truly an unforgettable day.

Sortie sympa

La balade en kayak jusqu’au Splitz Apple rock est sympa petit groupe de 5 kayaks avec le guide on a pris le temps puis café offert sur la plage. En revanche les horaires de navette pour l’apres midi sont un peu short. La navette nous a déposé à Anchorage puis environ 2h plus tard elle nous récupère nous n’avons donc pas eu le temps de faire de randonnée en entier depuis la plage, c’est dommage (seul point négatif pour nous), sinon guide sympa et journée agréable.

No value for the price

They sold it on book me as a 9 houres tour! But it wasn’t true. The kajak was only 2,5 houres in the afternoon. You didn’t see seals on the kayak tour! I did a lot of tours and I like it but this one was a rip off!
