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...) ;)

Kahu Kayaks was recommended to me by the ladies at the Motueka Top 10 holiday park, and I booked the 'Swingers Delight' trip as offering a little bit of everything. I'm reallly glad I did go with Kahu Kayaks, as I had a great day in Abel Tasman - from the pick-up in the morning until being dropped home later in the day. Highlights were: watching a seal feed its pup; coffee on the beach, and; the wonderful views from the Abel Tasman track . I found all the crew to be very friendly, and I was glad to be supporting a locally-owned enterprise.

A very nice Kayak trip with great guide! the trip along the coast is very beautiful and we got to see, from very nearby, penguins, seals, and great birds. The company also offers a combination with a scenic tour, this was not really our cup of tea and we suggest to take the beautiful walk through Abel Tasman park back instead.

Winter Wonderland trip was brilliant. Our guide Andy was funny, lunch was delish (i will always remember the muffin) seals, penguins and scenery were beautiful. Great day trip!

Fantastic day's paddling in Abel Tasman Marine Reserve. Guide Ethan added greatly to a high quality experience with his story telling skills.

Locally owned! Humorous, sincere, friendly, knowledgeable, non-money focussed and down to earth tour guides. They go the extra mile to accommodate your needs and answer all questions and address all concerns in an empathetic and caring manner. The tours were varied, but more time should be allowed to swim in the lovely NZ ocean at days end!
