Sea Kayaking Abel Tasman National Park

Over 50 kilometres of coastline offers dozens of golden sand beaches to visit, while the many coves and lagoons provide plenty of interesting nooks and crannies to explore. Sea kayaking here also opens up a world of sea and bird life encounters with animals such as penguins, seals and dolphins. So all in all, you've got to say, it's really not a bad spot!

We offer kayak rentals straight off of Kaiteriteri Beach, half day, full day and multi-day guided kayak trips.

We had a great time with these guys. Spent the whole day out on the water, saw all kinds of marine life, and even had a fresh oyster! Glorious sunshine, beautiful scenery and good company. Highly recommend.

Good equipment, super fun guide who had a good sense of humour. Lunch was fun, they made us hot drinks. Abel Tasman is beautiful.

If you have a young family and not up to a half/full day kayak trip then just rock up to Kaiteriteri Kayaks and book a freedom kayak for 30 minutes or 1 hour and the whole family can take turns kayaking around the bay.

Did the big Tonga kayak trip. The guide was friendly and did a great job commenting about the areas, history and kindly answering all questions.

Nice to be kayaking on the blue waters of the Abel Tasman. Stunning landscapes. Nice service. We paid for 4 hours of kayaking but actually it was only 3 hours 20 minutes on the water because of the safety explanation. I think they should mention that clearly, which they did not.

Very friendly instructor, felt safe even while doing independent kayaking. Two hours is enough for amateurs.

We purchased the beaches and seals day trip through GrabOne and had a great day. The kayaking was brilliant, our guide was brilliant, friendly and professional.

We had a safety lesson before starting which was good as the water was quite rough. Kayaking was still fun, just required more energy! We only paddled as far as Split Apple Rock - this was enough for us given the rough sea but if it was calm, we would have preferred a bit more kayaking.

We returned to Kaiteriteri beach for lunch and then boarded a water taxi to start the second half of the tour. This is the part which could have been improved but I will review the water taxi company separately.

Overall a great experience and I would recommend Kaiteriteri Kayaks.
