Abel Tasman Kayaks


Hours: 7.30am - 7pm

Paddling is our business.... Scratch beneath the surface. There is this place, hidden away at the northern corner of the South Island. People talk about it being special, but not until you take the adventure into the Abel Tasman National park do you truly understand how breath-taking it really is.


When paddling in paradise is your business, it doesn't seem like 31 years since pioneers Tom and Ingrid Horne took a beat up 1946 Ford truck, some borrowed river kayaks, and launched New Zealand's very first sea kayak company in the heart of Abel Tasman National Park. Abel Tasman Kayaks has grown into one of our country's premier tourist experiences, with over 150 double and single kayaks, a purpose-built home base in Marahau, dozens of guides with over 225 years combined expertise, and thousands of deeply satisfied customers.

Sea kayaking is such a unique, low impact way to explore the beautiful golden beaches, peaceful coves and lagoons, offshore islands, wildlife and the native forest fringing our granite coastline! We offer a comprehensive portfolio of guided, day and multi-day tours. We are here to bring this magic place to life for you....
