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.

    Rod Stuart and Kim were great hosts. Packed a lot of activities into the day. Went boating, kayaking to see fur seals, swimming and hiking. The swimming was cold! Bring sunscreen but if you forget, Rod will have you covered. I highly recommend this tour!

    What a fantastic way to spend a day! Our guide Mo was such fun, her incredible knowledge of the area & its wildlife was a real hit for us. From the facts & figures about Adele Islands predator free status to pointing out gulls nesting spots, it all added to the experience.

    Really enjoyed this boat trip and self guided walk. The boat was great, really pleasant sailing and nice occasional commentary from the skipper. We ordered the picnic - which maybe wasn’t worth the price - but very convenient to have the option of ordering it. We took the boat in the morning and walked the afternoon, but I’d suggest doing it the other way around - then it’s super convenient to have them bring a picnic for you and you’ll be ready for a swim at Anchorage before boarding the boat.

    An amazing time! We were a little worried about getting our way around but everyone was very informative and helpful. It was amazing to be able to explore at our own pace and we were able to see the beautiful beaches and even some seals! The drop off and pick up was very smooth and when we made it back to shore for drop off, not even 5 minutes later someone was there to pick us up. I would recommend to anyone wanting a little exercise and adventure!

    Great half day kayak trip with Georgia and Brody! Lots of good info about the area from them both. It was a bit rainy when we started, but ended up being a really beautiful day complete with seals and a killer beach. Would recommend.

    A great day in Abel Tasman. Good easy morning walk up the coastal track. Rain at lunch disappeared once we got out on the water. A delightful afternoon kayak with guide Pandi who took us along the coast. The highlight was the group of baby seals frolicking by an island. They were still young enough to be curious about humans and swam back and forth only a handful of meters away. Unforgettable.

    Beautiful walk, easy to follow. Afternoon cruise topped every expectation. The catamaran was spotless, the never ending supply of tea, coffee and cookies, the crew beyond friendly and super knowledgeable. 11/10!

    Went on a tour with my mother, and it was excellent. Our guide was Quinn was our guide and he kept it entertaining by using his knowledge of local wildlife. While it’s not promised he made sure we could see as many creatures as possible. As far as the admin task I would send anyone there. They ensure you make it to your destination at every step of the way. If it is a smaller group they can cater the experience to what you want to see. I would recommend this to anyone and I wouldn’t ever worry about sending someone to them. Only thing I would recommend is some sort of cushion along the back because the plastic starts to rub against it but that’s my only complaint.

    This was a great experience! I loved all the secluded beaches we stopped at and all the wild life we saw! Darrel was an awesome guide and had a lot of wonderful information about the area and New Zealand as a whole. Would highly recommend this kayak company!

    An excellent way to fit 2 activities into a day and see a fair bit of the Abel Tasman national park! Our guide Brody was full of information and made for a very safe and enjoyable 2/3hr paddle. Lunch provided was delicious. The walking section is beautiful and easy to complete in the time provided. All very well organised and worth the money!

    If you want to see Abel Tasman in all its glory, this is the place. Magical memories thanks to Tim from Abel Tasman Charters. We met at Stephen’s Bay, easy to find, and Tim was there on beach with Zodiac tender to take us to the Taranui. Boat was ideal for our 4 private charter. Comfortable, well appointed and great catering. The trip was utterly fantastic. We kayaked, snorkelled, took tender into hidden caves and lagoons and paused at Adele Island to listen to the enchanting song of many Bellbirds, chiming in harmony. So many great memories- well worth every penny and a testament to Abel Tasman Charters. One of the best boat trips ever.

    Just wanted to leave a review to say thanks to Abel Tasman Kayaks for an awesome experience. All of the staff were so helpful, friendly and accomodating. I had no previous experience paddling so was honestly a bit nervous but right from the start the guy sorting us out (can’t remember his name but he was the big blonde Viking, you know who you are) was so chilled and informative that he quickly dismantled any doubts.

    The kayaks had so much space we could easily have taken triple the amount of food that we did.
    The campsites were awesome. We got maps that were super helpful. Everything was perfect.

    Honestly blown away with how good this trip was. 100% recommend. Cheers.

    Awesome day of kyaking with small group & our guide Jordan.
    He had not been guiding at Abel Tasman Kyaks much more than 3mths, but without a doublt he knows his stuff & even ALL the local points if interest. He is professional an seasoned veteran . Very attentive to all needs & abillities.
    Not had to recomend thus as a must do if you want to how NZ used to be, prime untouched, golden sand water.
    Perfect weather *29 C made for a perfect day for all, incleding 2 teenage boys.
    A nice workout with plenty of rewards at many bays from Arwaroa down to Barks bay, with serveral swims & lunch along the way.
    10/10 Jordan - keep doing what you do, a real credit to the Team at Abel Tasman kyaks!!!
