Kayaking the Abel Tasman National Park is a great way to explore the coastline, beaches and coves. We can customise any of our kayak trips or put together a bespoke day or overnight adventure. A custom trip would include a private charter and kayak guide for the day or overnight. This is a great option for families and larger groups, providing more flexibility for a range of abilities, time and experience.

There is great fishing to be had in the Tasman Bay especially over summer. Main target species are Kingfish, Snapper & Gurnard. Local skippers provide local knowledge, and take you to the spots that produce the best fishing. Suitable for novices or experienced anglers.  Charters are priced from $300 an hr (min 3 hrs) for 1 - 4 people.  Gear and bait are included and fish are filleted where possible.

In our mind, this is the perfect day out..... Cruise by boat into the park, set up for a day on the beach with sun shelter, sit on top kayaks and a great selection of food. Spend the day swimming, walking, kayaking or just relaxing.  We can supply the shelter, catering and a guide for the day.
