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.
