A great kayak and walk option to experience the stunning southern end of the Abel Tasman.

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. Once finished enjoy one of our great lunches before swapping your paddle for walking shoes. Discover clear streams, native bush and incredible views over Anchorage and the Astrolabe.

Please note this trip may run in reverse.

We run three combinations of walking and kayaking in the Abel Tasman.  Each trip covers a different section of the coastal track and is priced as outlined. Kayak and Walk $125pp, Kayak & Pitt Head Nature Loop $150pp & Earth Sea Sky $190pp.
