wonderful and fun guide - Ryan. The weather was blustery but we had a great kayaking day. The scenery was beautiful. The trip up the river to the swinging bridge was a highlight. The wildlife was a bit sparse and we all wished for a bit more information on the natural history. Otherwise, a fantastic trip

Superb guide. A little company so we were the only family. He chatted, played with our son and arranged for a picnic at the beach.

Excellent tour, very informative guide. 'Swingers' is a great package for newbies who want to try out kayaking. Pricing ok in relation to the service.

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!
