The staff were friendly and funny but we had to wait almost two hours to start.

Great tour but definitely overpriced. Good food though.

First you kayak for about three hours along beautiful beaches and stop wherever you want. At Anchorage you leave the kayaks at the beach and walk part of the great walk back. Very beautiful, but a lot harder than you think in the beginning.

The three hour kayaking tour is really hard if you are untrained. But the beautiful beaches of Abel Tasman make the paddling worthwhile. The walk back was also really awesome.

Very friendly and extremely accomodating. Got a great price for a single day, unguided rental. Gear clean and worked well. Easy pickup and drop off at the beach locations.

We arrived at 8am to enquire about freedom kayak hires for the same day. Without hassle, we were trained and tested on our kayak rescue skills and by 9:30am we were on the water to explore. Easy pickup and dropoff on the beach!
