This two day trip is a great way to explore two thirds of the Abel Tasman National park by kayak and walk

Day one sees you joining the Full Day Kayak & Walk, and you will finish your day walking from Watering Cove to Anchorage. You will spend the night in Anchorage aboard Aquapackers. Day two take a short walk to Bark Bay or a longer walk to Onetahuti beach. Both walks include the famous Falls River swing bridge. At the end of day two water taxi back to Marahau.

We normally are able to secure dorm space at Aquapackers but please note at peak times this may not be possible. In the event of this we can discuss alternative accommodation in the National Park.

When you book it is possible to upgrade to a private cabin or 4 person dorm room. Please add this to your booking request and we will get back to you about availability and pricing.
