Enjoyable kayak trip

This was an enjoyable kayak trip. We were well briefed and it was really nice to be able to kayak (fairly) close to the seals. The lunch was really tasty too. However, while it says full day - the walk is unguided, so the main trip itself is a half day. Beautiful walk though.

Abel Tasman

We started the day with an unguided 3.5 hour walk along the coast. Beautiful scenery, but it was quite tiring towards the end, pretty flat all the way though. We then had a picnic lunch on the beach which was provided by our kayaking guide. We were briefed on how to kayak and then we were off! Was really nice to be able to kayak around and see the sea lions, as well as some babies. Quite a tiring day, I certainly slept well after. But definitely worth it.

Great kayaking experience in the Abel Tasman National Park! I highly recommend. But it would have been better if bookme told me the right check in time. Indeed, the check in time was at 9am and not 8.15 am..
