It is a good company, not so expensive and a good teacher for the kayak.

One day on my own, nice to be on my own, but sometimes hard to handle everything and find the way back. The Able Tasman National Park is awesome and you can see a lot.

What a fantastic time I had kayaking with Kahu. They were very organised and the instructors, Gary and Sophie, were super friendly and very informative. The morning was very relaxed and gave a lot of freedom to us novice kayakers. It is a shame I had limited time as I would happily have done more kayaking on a longer mixed tour. Also enjoyed surprise cookies and juice on the beach :-)

Very well organized and really friendly. Good instructions for the freedom kayaking. We went kayaking for 1 day up to Bark Bay, overnight there and hiked back the next day. Pick-up and drop off service in Motueka is a plus.
