We enjoyed kayaking with Abel Tasman Kayaks. Our kayaks were well maintained and had comfortable back support. Participants had a dry run in using sea kayaks before being launched, which was helpful. The staff to participant ratio was good. Lunch was plentiful.

We had a pleasant hike for 3 hours. Nicole then met us at a beach, gave us lunch then took us around the Tasman sea. We saw sealions, paddled around and even sailed a bit in a group of Kayaks! Highly recommended. Jolene.

We booked the two gods tour and it was great. Kayaking was incredible. We saw a lot of sea lions but no penguins, unfortunately. The short hike on the track was amazing, too. Would definitely recommend!

Sadly no ideas. We stayed in Te Anau and drove 120km to get to Milford. Limited and pretty basic facilities in Milford from what I can gather.
