As far as fun, unique and serene activities go, you won't find many that tick all of those boxes better than Abel Tasman SUP. Located at beautiful Marahau, just outside of the Abel Tasman National Park, we offer a whole range of paddleboard hire, and sit on top kayak hire, these are ideal for a couple of hours paddling around half day or full day and ideal for a bit of family fun

We did the stand up paddle boarding for two hours this morning and it was great fun. Impressed with the tuition you get at the beginning and the supply of lifejackets and dry bags. We paddled to a gorgeous little isolated beach.
