Right from the start, at 9am on a beautiful morning in Kaiteriteri I had a feeling that this was going to be a great experience. Tim, our guide was personable, friendly and full of good and pertinent information right from the off and even had...More

アシカが見れる自然満喫カヤック&トレッキングツアー! タフナヌイからバスでAbel Tasmanへ。2〜3時間のカヤックと5kmのトレッキングを体験。カヤックではツアーガイドのスコットさんがカヤックの乗り方やNZの自然について親切に教えてくれました。英語のみですが、英語がわからない参加者もたくさんいるので、私たちにも丁寧に教えてくれるので、とくに困ることはありません。 途中、川沿いにカヤックを止めてランチタイムをとります。ランチは自分で持っていきます。スコットが木から葉っぱをとり、お湯を沸かしてその葉っぱでお茶を入れてくれました。カヤックではアシカのいる岩まで近づくことができ、鳴き声も聞こえてくる臨場感!はじめてのカヤックで体力が心配でしたが、2人乗りで、男性と一緒だったので大丈夫でした。とにかく、自然の中で、海の風を浴びながらのカヤックが本当に気持ちよかったです!トレッキングでは、私は靴を持って行くのを忘れてしまい、ビーチサンダルで5km歩くというチャレンジ。。。意外と何とかなりましたが靴を持って行くことをおすすめします。 気軽に自然を満喫できる素敵なツアーでした! They picked me up at Tahunanui bus stop. I joined seals watching kayaking& trekking tour. Our tour guide Scott was very nice guy! The tour had 6-8 people. Even if my English is not good enough and this was the...More

Abel Tasman is famous for its sunny weather. Unfortunately, we had to walk in the storm. But Willsons provided good service! They gave us rainjacket and towel at the end. The cruise was very comfortable.

We had an absolutely perfect day with our very chilled and knowledgeable guide Adam!! We paddled from bay to bay and even saw a lot of seals! Stopped at Frenchman Bay to have lunch and chill out! Can definitely recommend this trip :)

Try emailing the I-Site information centre at Nelson or Motueka. I found staff very helpful at the Nelson centre.
