We did the freedom kayaking for a whole day in the Abel Tasman National Park with Kahu Kayaks and felt very well cared for. They helped us packing our kayak, we got safety instructions and some more help once we were on the water. Sadly, we had less time to kayak than expected as the procedures in the morning took quite some time and we had to be back by 4pm.

Good company, employees are very helpful, the way to Awaroa Bay was good, the walk back was nice, good value for money.
Friendly freedom kayaking with a good price. The forecast we were given was calm and easy but this changed quickly on the way back. Of 30+ kayakers out that morning, we were one of 4 boats to paddle back through increasingly dangerous weather. It did make it really fun though. I would have expected some help but it was cheap.

We had Mark (the Canadian) as our guide. He was not just knowledgeable but charismatic and empathetic to the needs of our small tour group. We found all staff to be very friendly and helpful. Totally worth paying for a guide! The park is amazing and we are really glad we had Mark who knew all about the local geography of the region and park and was very knowledgeable on the flora and fauna! Thanks!
Amazing beautiful coastline. We paddled up North for two days and back again staying at secluded campsites only accessible by boat. $14 per night for a campsite, $170 per person for four days kayaking.
A great day out.
One day of kayaking in Abel Tasman Park. Abel Tasman Park is beautiful, one day paddling was not easy for us but it was a nice activity and I saw some baby seals.
DO IT! Was great fun. Was so easy to book. Just turned up, did the skydive and paid. You won't regret it!

Really friendly and helpful people. Would recommend you split your Abel Tasman trip to half kayaking, half walking. Surprisingly hard work in the kayaks.
Friendly staff giving informative introduction into kayaking, amazing location with stunning beaches, seal colonies, worth the money.
Nice welcome, good briefing (it takes nearly 1hour). Equipment is good and you can get drinking water. No possibility to take a shower.
Nice kayak tour (freedom) at Abel Tasman. Unfortunately got to the sea too late - less time in water, everything else was great!
