Combine our best one day adventure with a night camping in the Abel Tasman!

Day one join us on our Remote Marine Reserve tour. This is a stunning trip where we have tailored our start and finish points around the tide timetable, it means on any given departure we offer the best part of the park to explore the marine reserve to the fullest by kayak.

Spend the night camping at Bark Bay or Anchorage and walk unguided the coastal track from Bark Bay to Anchorage or vice versa depending on where you camped. We have allowed plenty of time for exploring the coastal track.  If coming from Bark Bay walk up through the lush coastal forest before crossing the 47 m suspension bridge across Falls River. Sidle around two valleys before walking down to Torrent Bay. From here you have two options to take the high tide route and explore Cleopatra's Pool or spend the afternoon taking in the surrounds of Anchorage.  The estuary can be crossed within two hours either side of low tide, or an all-tide track leads around to Anchorage. If walking from Anchorage this walk will be reversed.  Catch the water taxi back late afternoon from Anchorage or Bark Bay back to Marahau.

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 the kayak trip covering the Tonga Island Marine Reserve you have a professional guide with you for around 7 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 for day two. All other meals and snacks are to be supplied by you. Camp passes and 1 bag transfer each way is included in our packaged price.  Please note camping gear must be supplied by clients or hired through us pricing can be found under the gear and gear hire tab.

Every trip is unique like each of our clients.
