Guided Rental Combo

Two Day ‘Marine Reserve’ Combo with Optional Houseboat Stay

Want to freedom kayak but uncertain if you have enough experience? Then consider a guided/rental “combo” trip with the emphasis on preparing you for freedom kayaking beyond day one. On your first day, an experienced guide will provide hands-on paddling instruction, spend more time with you, show you how to assess the weather, and familiarise you with the coastline of the Abel Tasman National Park.

Day One: 
Join our Tonga Island Marine Reserve Tour – this includes lunch and expert guidance for your freedom kayaking on day two. Camp (independently) at beautiful Anchorage Bay. We can hire you camping gear if you need it.
Day Two:  
Freedom kayak from Anchorage back to Marahau. You are paddling with the sea breeze, making paddling a joy. The Astrolabe Roadstead on day two is the most sheltered and protected part of the park, perfect for inexperienced paddlers.
