Tripadvisor Review
Great relaxed day in the Abel Tasman

We did the Heart of the Park with a water taxi from Marahau at 10.30am. A fantastic trip that is not too strenuous but gives you a great experience in the park. when we got to Bark Bay we had time to walk up to the Bark Bay falls/swingbridge which was a lovely short walk to experience the track. Then it was back to Bark Bay to join the kayaking. Neat kayaking trip down to anchorage which included kayaking into Falls River, wildlife/birds and a few waves for fun. We had had enough of kayaking by the time we finished, without being completely over it which i have experienced with longer trips. A great day in the park.

Great Customer Service

My husband and I did the half day Heart of the Park tour on January 23rd. Lucas was our guide and was very personable, knowledgable, and entertaining. The trip was fun and scenic, but didn't go exactly as we had hoped due to a mis-match of kayak abilities in the group as well as weather conditions. We contacted SKC after the fact and they appreciated our feedback and made it right. We were very impressed with their customer service.
