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.

Excellent experience, friendly staff, but felt it was a little expensive.

Very nice day out in Abel Tasman. Good kayaking guides and sailing was great.

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!

Great company in Abel Tasman N.P.
Fantastic day's paddling in Abel Tasman Marine Reserve. Guide Ethan added greatly to a high quality experience with his story telling skills.
My first time sea kayaking. Small group made for an excellent day. Scenery and wildlife superb. The guide was excellent. I liked the banter etc among the staff.
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!
Good mixture for one day, kayaking and walking back, all in all a wonderful day.
Very friendly, excellent service. Reasonable price and beautiful location.
