Our most eco trip! This trip is our most environmentally friendly on offer.

This trip is our most environmentally friendly on offer. The forest-fringed Astrolabe offers the highest concentration of golden sandy beaches in the Abel Tasman to explore. The highlight of this trip is visiting Adele Island sanctuary, home to an array of protected native birds and a popular hang out for NZ fur seals. A cacophony of bird sound is unique to the Island, and as this trip is 100% paddle power you are reducing your carbon footprint. If conditions permit, kayak-sail back into Marahau on the afternoon sea breeze. Simpy an amazing day.
