Our skippers and guides will teach you some wonderful history of the Abel Tasman National Park along the way and answer any questions you may have. We’re a fun bunch and love making sure you get the best from you time with us!

Sea Kayaking:

This tour covers the area between Kaiteriteri to the south and Split Apple
Rock in the north. It is a relatively small area with lots of interesting nooks
and crannies to explore. This makes it an ideal tour for the first timer. The
trip starts with a safety briefing, with full instruction to make
kayaking as simple as possible – even for first timers.

Tides play a big part in the tour itinerary. As these change with each day
then so does our tour. After a break for swimming, relaxing or exploring the beach
we set off for Ngaio Island on the homeward journey. Back to Kaiteriteri at
