Not so commercial as the rent of kayak rentals but good equipment, good programmes. Only the personnel seems to be in a hurry all the time! They do not understand that English couldn't be your home language.

Went for a walk in the Abel Tasman and kayak in the afternoon. Very touristic in the park. I went for an alternative less busy route. Friendly guys - bit factory work feeling, but I got what I expected.

What an awesome day! Okay, we were extremely lucky with the weather and wildlife, but later we talked to other travellers and the owner of the backpackers where we stayed - all of them highly recommended Kahu, because of the friendly and knowledgable stuff. Liked the humor a lot (just watch the video on their homepage...) ;)
