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 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!!!
Fun guides and knowledgable. Good equipment. Beautiful spot!
Brilliant service. On time. Friendly staff.
Combined sea kayaking in morning + 2.5hr unguided walk in afternoon. Superb. Very efficient collection and delivery. Good experienced local firm (not large national company).
Gary was a great guide, small group, great trip. Good lunch and sailing with the kayaks was fantastic!
The guide, Lucas, was amazing. He made cappuccinos on the beach, found us fresh oysters, and steamed fresh mussels. Oh yeah - the kayaking was great too!
Did guided day trip. Well-organised, great guide, perfect balance of exercise, relaxation, wildlife, history, site-seeing and fun. If any improvement needed some of historical stuff could be mixed up a bit, must be tough for guides to repeat every day.
We went on the swingers delight - half day kayaking, half walking - beautiful scenery, run by a local company who were friendly, fun and informative.
Helpful, informative and enthusiastic crew. Had a wonderful day at the Abel Tasman Park (and the sea) Have learned how to sail with a Kayak.
Nice instructions, beautiful sights. Seen no seals...
