Abel Tasman – Kayaking and Hiking

Our guide Emma from NZ Travel Designers planned a very full day us in Abel Tasman.  None of the operators in Abel Tasman run a trip like she did for us.  We asked for an action packed itinerary every day and she delivered yet again.  We started off in Marahau and took a ferry up to Tonga.  From there the ferry dropped us off with our kayaks and started our 4 hour paddle down to Torrent Bay.

Along the way we stopped at the Tonga Island Seal Colony and then stopped at a beautiful white sand beach for lunch. Our last kayak stop was Torrent Bay.

We left our kayaks on the beach for the ferry to pick up and then headed on our 4 hour hike back to Marahau.

It was a long tiring day and the weather didn’t totally cooperate with us but it was a still another great day in New Zealand… and we had some great fish in chips for dinner at the Smokehouse Cafe (HIGHLY recommended).
