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.

Our kayak tour as a group was awesome. The young guide introduced very honest about his fast changing plans within the tour and he was very knowledged. His experience about kayaking and wildlife was a big benefite he got from his kayaking family.
Thanks a lot

With just one word: Wow
I did three tours in three days, Split Apple Classic for a warm up, Heart of the Park with a walking part and Astrolable Explorer. All tours were with different guides, but they were all amazing. I enjoyed every second of the tours. In the end, because of me doing three tours, I was presented even with a T-Shirt from their company for free. I can highly recommend them, if you are in the area. You come as close as possible to the marine life, without disturbing them.

We did the "heart of the park"-tour and everything was perfect! You get to cruise along the shores, to have a beautiful little walk and an amazing kayak experience. So you basically get to discover the Abel Tasman in three different ways. Our guides Aaron and Sharon were very knowledgeable and super friendly. Food was good, too. We just loved it!

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.
