From $180pp

Water Taxi to the Tonga Island Marine Reserve area before kayaking out to Tonga Island to watch New Zealand Fur Seals.

Start with a scenic ride on our Water Taxi into the southern end of the Abel Tasman. Explore the surrounding coastline by kayak paddling out to Adele & Fisherman Islands. Observe the antics of the resident New Zealand Fur Seals Kekeno and watch out for little Blue Penguins too! You will have ample time to spend with the playful Kekeno who call the island home. This short but sweet taste of the Abel Tasman allows plenty of time to soak up the quintessential Abel Tasman coastline before arriving back in Marahau at 4.30pm.

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 lunch designed around your health and energy.

Every trip is unique like each of our clients.
