Short on time but want to experience the top of the park? This trip offers one day unguided walking and one day guided kayak.

Do you have only two days to experience the Abel Tasman and want to see the Northern end of the park? This trip has been designed for those wanting to experience the top of the park. One day unguided walking and one day guided kayak.

We have taken our popular Three Day Tiki and broken it into the first two days. This is 'kiwi tikiing' at its best: one day unguided walking, one day guided kayak.  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, after you start the day with a 1hr 10min walk to Onetahuti where you will meet your guide. At the end of the day return to Marahau by Water Taxi.

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. We also cater a snack and lunch designed around your health and energy made onsite by our container cafe. Please note all other food is to be supplied by the client.

Every trip is unique like each of our clients.

Price for 20/21 season is $385pp & single supplement $60pp

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