From $180pp

Explore from Marahau to Anchorage in a day.

Embark on your guided kayak adventure from Marahau to Observation Beach. You will catch glimpses of the coastal track and experience up close the magic of the Astrolabe Islands. After landing at Observation Beach enjoy one of our great lunches lovingly made at our container cafe before swapping your paddle for walking shoes.

Discover clear streams, native bush and incredible views over Anchorage and the Astrolabe on your afternoon walk. Walk along Anchorage Beach to walk the beautiful Pitt Head loop. Allow plenty of time to take in the view from Te Pukatea Bay, a hidden gem in the Abel Tasman. Walk back to Anchorage for your Water Taxi pick up back to Marahau.

Please note this trip may run in reverse.

We run two walking and kayaking combinations in the southern end of the Abel Tasman.  Each trip covers a different section of the coastal track Kayak and Walk $150pp and Kayak & Pitt Head Nature Loop $180pp.

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.

Every trip is unique like each of our clients.
