About
Sea Kayaking Abel Tasman National Park Kaiteriteri Kayaks has been operating sea kayaking tours in the Abel Tasman National Park for nearly 20 years. With every trip we ensure that: safety is a priority; everyone has a relaxed time in an enjoyable atmosphere, and the beautiful environment is respected. Our trips are about experienced guides and good times, not hard work. For lots of laughs join a trip with the locals! Over 50 kilometres of coastline offers dozens of golden sand beaches to visit, while the many coves and lagoons provide plenty of interesting nooks and crannies to explore. Sea kayaking here also opens up a world of sea and bird life encounters with animals such as penguins, seals and dolphins. So all in all, you’ve got to say, it’s really not a bad spot!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Simply fantastic. We had no kayaking experience but the team and Elysha our guide took great care of us, explaining everything we needed to know and more besides. You can leave your bags at the kiosk and there are dry bags for your wallet and stuff and smaller more accessible ones for phones etc to take with you. We were a group of 6 including Elysha in 3 two man canoes and all got on really well. We paddled out to Split Apple rock, into a little cave then stopped at a beach for coffee and a swim.
We paddled back to the starting point and 2.5 hours had gone very quickly.
We had a wonderful time and would recommend to anyone.

Had a great day with Orinoco guiding us . A group of seven Two English couples and a Danish family. Very relaxing even for us oldies Orin went out of his way to keep us informed with local knowledge en route . Round a couple of islands and a three point turn in a cave proved hysterical before visiting Apple Split Rock andlanding at a beach where he produced coffee and biscuits for the team . We probably kayaked about 5km all told at a very gentle pace which meant we could take in the fabulous surroundings. We bought a package from Sea Shuttle which included kayaks and a trip to Anchorage bay .
It’s a great day out

Had a tour guides by Corbin, and my wife and I had a fantastic time. Corbin was knowledgeable and helpful with the whole experience. It’s a great way to explore the beautiful golden beaches of the South Island.

We had a very special and enjoyable kayaking adventure with Bryn yesterday. The scenic beauty of the area was enhanced by the kayaking experience and his calm & friendly manner, connecting with all in the group and ensuring our safety with clear instructions. We really appreciated exploring the nearby caves at low tide. Thanks Kaiteriteri Kayaks!

We chose Kayak, Seals & Cruise package for family 2 adults and 4 children. Our first leg comprised a 3 hour kayak adventure that departed from Kaiteriteri Beach to Split Apple Rock return paddle. We were ably guided by Bryn who provided insights and history of our surrounds. Easy paddle for kayak novices like us. Beautiful views throughout.

My adult daughter and I have just had the most wonderful day hugging the Abel Tasman Reserve coastline. Mark from Kaiteriteri Kayaks gave us a great handover briefing as we hadn't done a lot of kayaking before. We each had a kayak (were unguided) and launched from Kaiteriteri Beach... to mooch about at our leisure up to Split Apple Rock.

A couple of beach stops for the lunch/snacks we had packed (kept waterproof and safe in the kayak's inbuilt holdall). We could also take an iPhone for photos in a specially provided dry bag also provided by Mark. Later, after the 4 hour kayaking, we did some paddle boarding around the bay and I was surprised at just how much fun it is!

Thank you Mark and team for an amazing day. One we will always remember. For anyone considering using Kaiteriteri Kayaks we say Go For It! you are in safe hands with Mark and his colleagues.

We went on the guided trip recently and had an incredible time. Our guide was well informed about the local area. Kiera was encouraging as we paddled in the wind, we felt at ease with her support as we cruised to Split apple (avocado) ROCK having her point out even the smallest sea creatures (Salp) and bird life! Great trip kind Gal!

What is it with the NZ hospo/tourism industry? they moan like their a——s are on fire when there are Covid restrictions preventing them from operating & when they can work they don’t. Grey & rainy Saturday at Kaiteriteri but still warm & calm enough for a swim but K sea kayaks packed up & drove off just as we got to their porta kiosk. When we rang the 0800 number we given flimsy excuse that the weather was going to turn. We’re here two hours later - still calm & overcast. Contemplating another swim.

We had an incredible morning sea kayaking from Kaiteriteri to Split Apple Rock! Our kayak guide gave us an in-depth safety briefing at the start, so we felt prepared for all eventualities! But the weather stayed beautiful for the entire trip and we even had enough time to explore the beach next to Split Apple rock and take heaps of amazing pictures. Thanks team!

We had a double kayak - got a great lesson before we could set off, strapped in and off we went. What a great time to be had. Water was so smooth, the views both out to the ocean and back in land were amazing. Kayaked to Split Apple Rock, (meh - another review) but enjoyed paddling all around the place past different bays and rocks etc. A definite to do. Staff were great and very helpful!
