A fantastic trip - we got picked up at Motueka Top10, drove to Manahau, had a good introduction to how to kayak, did a half day trip on the tasman sea, had coffee and tee on the beach, and hiked the abel tasman coastal track. Even the water taxi trips have been exiting!
This company has very friendly people and we highly recommend to pick them if you want to see Abel Tasman National Park from it's best side - from the water. Would always like to come again!

What a great day! Picked up by Stephen on time at the Top10 site, taken by Andy all the way to Awaroa Head to drop off other kayakers before seeking out Sting Rays to observe and then drop off at Bark Bay for a perfect walk to Torrent Bay through glorious bush. To complete the day the definitive guided tour of the AT coast as viewed from a sea kayak with Brett leading the way. Informative, enjoyable and a wonderful experience. He makes a great Latte and Hot Chocolate too. Thanks to all concerned for making it such a memorable day.

An awesome trip, a really great way to see the national park. Brilliant guide (Brett I think) who gave us plenty of local information whilst out on the water, and made it a really relaxing and fun experience. He was also a dab hand in the hot drinks department and made us mocha's on the beach whilst having our impressive sandwich and giant muffin (included in the trip!). A really personal service which is rare to find nowadays. I'd definitely recommend these guys!
