The Abel Tasman Coastal track is part of New Zealand’s great walk network. Its’ famous for its access to it’s many golden beaches and the native forest fringing the granite coastline. It is unique great walk in that every ‘section’ of the coastal track offers multiple opportunities to stop off at golden sand beaches and other coastal highlights, in fact certain sections of the coastal track are the stunning sweeping golden beaches. Unlike other Great Walks, you also have the unique benefit of taking a water taxi in and out to experience sections of the track at your own leisure, and to suit your own timetable.  It really is a park for all seasons and all people!  So from half day through to the full five day journey, there is really is something for everyone.

Walking in the park is generally broken into the following sections Marahau to Observation, Observation to Anchorage, Anchorage to Bark Bay, Bark Bay to Onetahhuti, Onetahuti to Awaroa and Awaroa to Totaranui.

Each section is roughly 2 – 4 hours of walking on a well formed track. We offer a number of independent walk only options which start with a scenic water taxi ride allowing you more time walking the section that you have choosen. If you have time, we recommend choosing our Three Day Classic Walk which covers the whole track, relax and recharge walking from Totaranui back to Marahau.

We understand sometimes it’s hard to choose between walking and kayaking so we have pieced together trips that offer both as an option. A trip like the Two Gods sees you exploring the Tonga Island Marine Reserve by kayak before exploring and walking the middle section of the coastal track or our rental kayak and walk options offer flexibility to experience the Abel Tasman by both land and sea, each trip highlights complementary sections of the park.

Had a half day kayak with Balveer. He was friendly and informative and catered well to the needs of our small family group. Aside from talking about the area, he was a really interesting guy just to talk to. My son loved chewing the fat with him.

I had a great kayak day tour. Kayaking was the best choice for exercise and to go into the national park and see the wildlife. Our guide Nathan knew many details about all the birds and wildlife and history of the park!! He took great care of us. Lunch stop at the beach was amazing. I would have loved to see even more from the park and kayak further.

Great tour with Nathan giving really informative commentary throughout. We had a bonus Little Blue Penguin float calmly around the kayaks towards the end of the trip, too. So great.

Luisa was a fantastic guide! She was not only informative with the history & sites, she was fun to be with.
Also turned our kayaking adventure into a sailing one!

A must do!! Belvir (sp?) gave us a great safety briefing and information before we set off. It was helpful and entertaining. We went all the way to Anchorage, dropped off the kayaks and walked back. Also saw seals on the way. An amazing family experience we will never forget. So glad we did it, and highly recommend these guys to book with.
