Source to Sea, the ultimate way to discover the best of Abel Tasman. Water Taxi, canyoning, BBQ, sleeping on a boat, walking and sea kayaking!

On day one meet your friendly canyoning guides and get geared up and briefed on how the tour is going to run. Then catch the Water Taxi into Anchorage where you start off with a short walk to the canyon get in point.Torrent River canyon is our most popular adventure simply because it has it all. Jumps, slides, floats, abseils, ziplines, you name it.... Torrent’s got it. All this exciting stuff takes place in a gorgeous granite canyon filled with some of the purest water and untouched rain forest. You finish the canyon journey at beautiful Cleopatras Pool followed by a short walk back to Anchorage. Lunch, snacks, drinks and photos are included.

In Anchorage your nights’ accommodation awaits you, the Aquapackers (floating backpackers). On board you will find hot showers, tea & coffee and all bedding supplied. They provide a lovely cooked barbecue meal for dinner.

On day two you start off with complimentary breakfast on the boat then head over to the beach for a morning of your choice (relax on the beach, walk the beautiful Pitt head loop or go for a swim). All you have to do is take a short walk (1hr 30 - 2hrs) to Observation Beach where you will meet your fun and friendly sea kayak guide at 12.30 for lunch.

After lunch you will have a quick kayak briefing then start your afternoon paddling adventure back to Marahau. On the way paddle past beautiful Adele Island, there you can listen to the magical birdsong and try to spot the cheeky fur seals basking on the rocks. Then take time to explore the glistening golden sand beaches of the famous Astrolabe Roadstead. As the sea breeze builds finish off with an exciting kayak sail back into Marahau to finish your two day adventure.

Paddling is our business, with all activities supported by our purpose-built kayak base, free hot showers, free wifi, free equipment storage & client transporters. We also provide high-quality soft gear - fitted for each client by our guides and high-quality hard gear – customised for comfort for each client.

On this trip covering the Astrolabe coastline you have a professional guide with you for around 4 hours sharing their knowledge and passion of the Abel Tasman. We also cater a snack and lunch designed around your health and energy made onsite by our container cafe.

We are normally able to secure space at canyoning and Aquapackers but please note at peak times this may not be possible, when booking your reservation will be unconfirmed until we can secure space.
