This is 'kiwi tikiing' at its best. One day unguided walking, one day guided kayak and one day kayaking on your own. Water taxi to Totaranui and spend the first day walking in the northern section of the park. After crossing the Awaroa Lagoon spend a night at Awaroa Glamping, Awaroa Bay. Day two sees you paddling on our Marine Reserve Tour -  you start the day with an hour 10 walk to Onetahuti where you will meet your guide. Accommodation on night two is at Aquapackers in Anchorage Bay. Day three allows you the freedom to explore the Anchorage/Astrolabe area by kayak before returning to Marahau. Now that's what we call a tiki tour! 

Min of 2 pax required for this trip.

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 in the heart of the park you have a professional guide with you for around 6 hours sharing their knowledge and passion of the Abel Tasman. 

Every trip is unique like each of our clients.

We are normally able to secure space at Aquapackers and Awaroa Glamping 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.For enquiries for this trip either phone on 64 3 527 8022  or click here to send us an email.
