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.

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.

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.

Great family morning - 2 adults and 2 kids (8 and 12) kayaking around to Split Apple Rock. We stopped on the beach for refreshments and went exploring the beach caves. Some leading to others which the kids thought was great.

Trip was about 2.5 hours long. Double kayaks so no trouble when the kids got tired of paddling.

Our Guide Perrin was tops. She had good knowledge of the area and really knew how to encourage the younger crew (8-14yrs) with paddling and the older crew to try the cave challenge :).

Kaiteriteri is a great spot to chill out after trip with yummy coffee or milkshake on the beach!

Abel Tasman NP has a breathtaking mix of rainforest and beach scenery, and while walking the Coastal Track is amazing it's even better to be able to explore the beaches, coves and tidal lagoons and see some of the local wildlife up close, by kayak.
We booked a One Day Seals & Remote Coast tour which included water taxi into the National Park, paddling instruction and tour, morning tea & lunch, and a friendly knowledgeable guide.
Our trip took in Bark Bay, Tonga Island Marine Reserve, Mosquito Beach, Onetahuti Beach, Tonga Arches, local seal colonies and Shag Harbour - all stunning!
By day's end my shoulders, elbows and wrists hurt, I could barely lift my arms over my head, and I had a slight sunburn...but I’m still dreaming of when I'll be back in Abel Tasman.
TIP: Paddle with your core, not your arms!

What a GREAT day! We did the Royale with Cheese, and our guide Hanna was extremely knowledgeable and helpful throughout, especially considering the very wide range of kayaking experience in our group. This is a very full day, with gorgeous views of the Abel Tasman including caves and seals, punctuated by a huge lunch (provided) in the middle. We were able to do something I've always wanted to try (grouping all out kayaks together and using a sail) so that was an added bonus for me. Highly recommended!

Friendly, they fed us, they give exactly what they advertise. Although the walk wasn't quite accurately sold.

Kayak hire guide was good. Equipment ok - would have preferred kevlar boats. Good value though - but a stupid comment from the lady in the office, she said we could walk the whole 23km in our jandals!
