Day three allows you to explore the coastline by kayak from either Bark to Anchorage or Anchorage to Marahau depending on where you camped the night before. Now that's what we call a tiki tour! 

We run five walking and kayaking combinations.  Each trip covers a different section of the Abel Tasman Great Walk coastal track, Kayak & Walk, The Two GodsTwo Day Tiki, Three Day Tiki & Remote Marine Reserve Overnighter.

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 in the marine reserve you have a professional guide with you for around 6 hours sharing their knowledge and passion of the Abel Tasman. We supply lunch and camping gear on day two.

Every trip is unique like each of our clients.

We are normally able to secure space at Awaroa Glamping but at peak times this may not be possible, when booking your reservation it will be unconfirmed until we secure space. In the event we are not able to secure space we can discuss alternative accommodation in the National Park.

We are in the process of updating our itinerary pdf to reflect this change and the change in our guided kayak trip, please note the accommodation on night 2 is at Anchorage or Bark Bay campsite (we supply camp gear).
