We did a 3 days tour, and despite the awful first day we really enjoy it. Our guide Ethan was fantastic, great skills, good knowledge of the area and to top it off he is a very good cook. It was really a great experience.

Highly recommend a kayak/hike outing in Tasman with The Sea Kayak Co. The park is truly stunning and the kayaking/guide were the right balance of providing instruction/information but also being hands-off. Had a great post kayak lunch on the beach before embarking on a 12...More
