Good price for the whole day, good level of tuition, instruction and quality kayaks! Well priced!
Well instructed (very funny). Good material. We were rescued very fast (went too far).
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
Thank You - to the thousands of travellers that have contributed to our Top Voted NZ Activities Map - it's free from Rankers.
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.

Wonderful day. On the Tasman Bay saw a lot. Good guide, fine weather - super!!
Superb kayaking trip, loved the guide - fantastic!
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!
Awesome guide and great service. Half day trip is quite long in the end. I ended up quite exhausted!
Kahu Kyaks were Amazing we had a fantastic trip the guide was great, really nice lunch provided and the equipment was top notch. 10/10
Kahu kayaks are great!! I had so much fun!! We had a group of 22 16/17yo german students with us and they had a fantastic time as well. The guides were friendly and knowledgable and we played some fun games...couldn't have been better!!!
