One day hire to experience the Northern Abel Tasman. Very good fun, only bad thing is we could not hire the kayaks for two days, because it was Christmas Day.

Super good, supervised, good prices, no worries if you can bring the kayak back one hour later.

Very helpful, friendly staff.
We booked a freedom tour. When we arrived it was very windy and wavy. They explained that it would be to dangerous to go alone. So we get a family guidet tour in the morning and in the afternoon with some more experience, we could do a short freedom trip.
Great experience for the kids and the parents!!

Incredible customer service - Tony and Lisa go the extra mile to look after their customers and put safety AND fun at the forefront. Great equipment, thorough (but not boring) training and all the info you need on the area. Totally awesome.

Great family day - even held attention of teenage boys ! Paul had lots of interesting information to impart throught the tour and safety conscious. None of us had kayak'd before but no problem at all. Seals up close were an added bonus - definitely a highlight of the holiday for us.

Half day guided sea kayak trip. Really fantastic. The guide was very knowledgeable and safety conscious. We were very comfortable following his lead. Of course the scenery was spectacular, a highlight of our vacation in New Zealand.

I had an awesome time. The scenery was beautiful and we saw lots of seals. Paul was really informative and I enjoyed the tea break on the beach. The photos he sent of the trip were a good memento.

Absolutely fantastic experience and a must do if you are visiting the Tasman!
Fun for the whole family with great new owners and knowledgeable guide that held the attention of our 7 year old for 4+ hours (a challenge as any parent will know).
Thank you Tony, Lisa and Paul

We decided to do this trip because of the price (about half the price of some tours) and because it was a little further off the beaten track than the other Abel Tasman kayak tours. The guided tour was professional but very friendly at the same time. We were emailed photos following the tour at no extra cost. The equipment was great and the actual tour route was beautiful. The home made morning tea was really yummy too!

We'd recommend this tour to anyone wanting to do a kayak tour in the area.

Quick instant (just a morning) but very enjoyable moment. Managers (Kanako and Nigel) really nice and full of small attentions (fishing, coffee cookie halt, passion fruit hunting J, swimming …) in addition to the proposed activity.

Good location (no crowd, and wildlife spot), good material, and really appreciate the small friendly structure.
