Start with a scenic ride on our Water Taxi into the heart of the national park. Explore the surrounding coastline by kayak paddling past Tonga Island. 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 time to soak up the wonder of the Abel Tasman, we’ve allowed plenty of time to relax at Bark Bay beach before catching the 2pm Water Taxi back to Marahau returning 3.00pm.
