Perfect Day!

We had an absolutely gorgeous day in the Abel Tasman. Brad was friendly, concise and comprehensive in his instruction. We felt very confident. Equipment was all top notch and comfortable. Cannot recommend this experience highly enough.

Abel Tasman Kayak day trip

Fantastic day out, the kayak was very stable (mind you the sea was very flat!) Great price too. Looses a star as we had not been told where to aim for on the low tide return pickup.

Just amazing

The staff were very friendly and welcoming. They clearly explained everything we needed to know. The kayaks were good and it’s just so peaceful out in the water. Definitely recommend.
