Over 50 kilometers 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 rented a stand-up paddle. We got good instructions and it was fun. It closes quite early though.

Very professional. Didn't let us paddle due to strong wind. We hired kayaks the next day. You can only get to Split Apple rock though. 3 hours is way enough for rental. Quite long safety briefing, but still 10/10. Best place for kayaking.

Very friendly service, good for kayak novices.
Royale with Cheese - full day trip. Thoroughly enjoyed by us both. Only thing to comment on was we were told the day was 8am till 4.30pm. Started at 9am and finished at 4pm.
Perfect! Only the lunch was below our expectations.
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!
We did the two day Royale with Cheese. 1 day walk and 1 day kayak and 1 night in a hut (DOC). Trip was quite expensive $225, when there does not seem that many costs involved. The scenery and wildlife was wonderful.
We did a walk and a kayak trip with an overnight in Abel Tasman. Well organised. Lunch during the kayak trip was a bit poor.
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!
We did the Royale with Cheese and this was a well served and funny trip. Good company to book with.
Good briefing, good equipment, very nice!
Tours are great and guides are excellent (sometimes they could give more instructions!). Bookings over the phone are not the best - some vital information not told which complicated things at check-in.
Sadly influenced by high winds/poor kayaking conditions - therefore only kayaked half the plan. Clearly they could not influence weather but perhaps an early finish/refund option would have been better.
