And the Aquapackers is another amazing couple doing what they... read more

Awaroa is one of the many stunning beaches we launch our kayak trips from, situated right on the edge of the Tonga Island Marine Reserve. 🚣‍♂️
It may be the smallest national park, but it's got a lot of coastline to explore. ❤️ the Abel Tasman National Park.
Totaranui is the starting or finishing point for many walkers who take three days to explore the Abel Tasman. 🥾🏕️
Low tide crossing at stunning Awaroa Estuary.
Koro (Grandfather) and Kuia (Grandmother) our water taxi names reflect our desire to share and tell stories of the Abel Tasman.  The Abel Tasman National Park may have been gazetted as a national park in 1942 but its history dates back at least 700 years.
