Waka Paddling Tour

The Waka Paddling Tour is highly recommended. “Paddle from Kaiteriteri up to Toka Ngawhā (Split Apple Rock) with your small group and immerse yourself in Māori culture and customs along the way, learning karakia, paddle commands and a waka salute – all in te reo Māori. See more at Viator here.

Abel Tasman National Park: this glorious beach track can be walked in 3 to 5 days with huts and camping sites as accommodation options.

You can walk with your packs or have them delivered for you by boat.

Kayaking is also a fun way to see the park and marine life.

Take a boat trip to the Tonga Island Marine Reserve for kayaking, snorkelling and friendly seals. Here’s a place you can book the tour with: https://seakayak.co.nz/trip-details/20-big-tonga-marine-reserve

If you don’t have time to walk the whole park, day walks from Marahau or the lodge give you an excellent taste of the park. The track meanders by white sand beaches, turquoise water, and through beech forest with incredible views.

Kaiteriteri Beach is a stunner but can get very busy in summer. Lots of places to eat here.
