amazing group trip thanks to sea kayak co

I organised a group of 6 mums and 6 13 year old girls to do the 2 day Tonga Is trip. The Sea Kayak Co team were so helpful, particularly as I had to speak to them multiple times as we kept chopping and changing our booking.

“Amazing Kayaking experience”

We booked a two-day kayaking hiking trip with a houseboat stay. The booking procedure via telephone was very efficient and everything was organised as agreed upon.
We had a small group and our excellent guide did a great job looking out for the group. Furthermore she explained a lot about the animals we saw (especially seals with their babies and shags) and the history and nature of Abel Tasman NP.
The lunch provided was very delicious. and the stay on the houseboat was a very great experience.
