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.

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!
