Friendly staff, lots of information, good equipment.
The kayak tour was quite cheap ($40 for three hours). The staff was friendly and polite. We were late but they offered us a special price 9$40 instead of $59). The landscape was amazing!

Abel Tasman is incredible and I thought this kayak company was great. The "guide" who walked us through the safety stuff was knowledgable and friendly. We did the 1 day freedom kayaking where we kayaked out to Anchorage Bay and walked back on the track. On another day, I would've rated this a 10. It had the potential to be incredible! But beware...the mad mile is MAD if the conditions are "right." We should not have been kayaking in these conditions but felt pressure to get our kayak to Anchorage Bay because that's where they were picking it up. We are fairly experienced kayakers and this was by far my scariest kayaking experience. So I think it's worth going with a guided trip here and I'd definitely recommend Kahu.
Great day. Great guide. Great experience.
We did the Classic Marine reserve tour. We saw seals, including a mother feeding her pup. We saw birds diving into the water and watched 2 gannets fighting over a fish.
I brought a snorkel along and at the lunch break I saw fish and paua shells among the rocks.
The lunch was simple but very tasty - and the fresh coffee was very welcome.
Our guide, Ethan, really made the trip special - he worked hard at explaining what we were doing next and where we were going.
We had a fantastic experience.

Cheaper company in this area, nice and friendly people, time on the water is short. We started at 11.30am and had to come back at 4.00pm - paid for a full day.
Excellent service and guides. A 'must-do' if visiting Abel Tasman!
They were absolutely fantastic!! Highly recommend them
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!
