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.

Zeer matig

Mooie omgeving maar de gids was echt te jong. De uitleg was zonder ook maar enige humor of enthousiasme. Kon echt beter maar vooral leuker. We waren met een klein groepje waarbij een echtpaar echt moeite had met het kayaking. Ze kregen geen enkele aandacht van de gids ondanks dat ze de groep echt ophielden. Er was geen enkele meerwaarde van de gids tov van een tour zonder gids. Zijn niet naar de plek geweest waar de zeehonden kolonie zit of andere mooie plekken dat het kayaking in deze omgeving zo speciaal moet maken. De lunch was wel goed daarom 2 sterren ipv 1. Maar in z’n geheel teleurstellend en absoluut geen waar voor je geld. Veel te duur.
