This is a 'real' small business and by real I mean the real thing. These guys live to get people out on the water and experience what they clearly love about Abel Tasman. By a stroke of luck they were recommended by Steve at Top 10. He said they are the best of the bunch. Steve was great as well as Tony but Lucus our guide was top notch he could spot wildlife a mile a way and knew detailed info about each animal. They take pride in getting you out on the water before other groups and seeing the most while providing the best experience.
Freedom kayaking, safety instruction and good equipment.
Full day guided trip. Amazingly friendly, helpful staff. Get to see everything from seals, beautiful scenery and local wildlife. Perfect day.
The only camping map where each location is approved by every regional council in NZ. So if it shows on the map, you’re allowed to stay.
The Official Camping Map of NZ, is also in association with…
Really informative guides, highly recommended.
Worth hiring a kayak solely for the most hilarious safety talk we've ever heard - and that's not to say they aren't a safe company or in any way don't take it seriously. They just have the most fantastic ways of making it all memorable...
Oh, and our day of free-kayaking from these guys led us to the most amazing experience with 7 very inquisitive and playful seal pups who played around (nearly all over!) our boat for hours. The Kahu guys mentioned there were some pups in this place - we'd done a guided tour before who hadn't gone anywhere near, so we'd have missed it altogether without them. So thanks Kahu!
(The food truck out front is also wicked for post-kayak food: yum)
Very good. Helpful, informative guide (Lucas). Our boat had minor steering fault.
Kayak tour in the Abel Tasman National Park. Amazing tour (seen very young seals around our kayak), very good guides, nice lunch. Everything fine!!
Half day tour, excellent value for money. Guide very helpful + skillful.
Friendly staff, included launch, good guidance. Too expensive.
Well organised water trip. Proffesional guide.
Good price, had to carry tent back.
Great trip but had to carry the tents back during our hiking trip.
Nice trip around the coast, but you have to carry the tents the whole hiking track.
