Perfect for families and those wanting a short kayaking experience.
This easy relaxed paddle is a great introduction to the Abel Tasman, kayaking, and viewing up close the famous Split Apple Rock.
Explore the coastline from Marahau to Split Apple Rock. Paddle past sea caves on a high tide, learn about the shag (Cormorant) colony, and explore Nagio Island & Split Apple Rock before returning to Marahau. The relaxed pace allows plenty of time to take that perfect picture of Split Apple Rock whilst enjoying afternoon snacks and refreshments on the beach.
