Fantastic tour!

Perfect day for the perfect tour! Highly recommend it. Garreth was an awesome tour guide and shared lots of facts about the park. Towards the end, we even did a bit of “sailing” with our kayaks which was really fun! Thank you and we will be back again for sure!

They’ll make the best of weather conditions

Highly recommend this experience if you are short on time and want to explore as much as possible of the Abel Tasman in one day. The tour guide is extremely experienced and fun and they provided a delicious lunch catered to all dietary requirements.

Amazing

Excellent pre tour briefing at the centre followed by a short ride to the beach It took a while for my wife to get a hang of it but there were constant encouraging from our tour leader Got to see some seals lazing on Adele island Water was fortunately calm so very enjoyable They put up a delicious lunch at a beach near. We took the water taxi back to base as we were too exhausted to continue with the 2 hour trek back. Best decision we made. Definitely recommend this for anyone with an adventurous spirit!!

Wonderful experience with Abel Tasman Kayaks

Enjoyed the tour with an exceptional guide, overall kayaking experience and delicious lunch! Though half of the tour spent on unguided walk (which means you seem to be paying for a half day package), I enjoyed the overall experience.
