Kayaking the Tasman was great, awesome and informative guide, surprise/chance whale watching was an added bonus, but the 2.5 hour unscenic woodland coastal walk let it down - badly!

Did the Swingers Combination of bush walk and sea kayaking. Superb scenery: excellent guides full of information on history, natural history of geysers. Perfect for anyone of average fitness - no kayaking experience needed.
