We started out from Kaiteriteri in Abel Tasman and took a cruise boat to Torrent Bay, we met our kayak guide there and hopped into our kayaks to head off on our day exploring the Abel Tasman National Park!

When did you go kayaking in the Abel Tasman?

I went on the kayak trip at the end of May and the weather was great!

What did you enjoy the most about your guided tour?

We had a beautiful day with very calm sea conditions and stunning blue skies, which made for an amazing day kayaking! Our guide was a friendly local Kiwi and she was very knowledgeable about the ocean and the local wildlife. It was great learning more about this stunning part of New Zealand.

I went out on the trip with my husband and we had a two-seater kayak! We both had such a good day and there were no arguments about paddling at all - success!
