About Abel Tasman Kayaks
Abel Tasman Kayaks was established in 1986, realising a vision to bring visitors into the glorious Abel Tasman National Park. Sea kayaking is such a unique, low impact way to explore the beautiful golden beaches, peaceful coves and lagoons, offshore islands, wildlife and the native forest fringing our granite coastline! This innovation became an instant hit with visitors to the area, and saw the growth and development of Abel Tasman Kayaks into one of the leading kayak operations in the world. We have continued to lead the way with a strong commitment to high safety standards and experienced guides with incredible passion and extensive local knowledge of the park. We offer a comprehensive portfolio of guided, day and multi-day tours. We are here to bring this magic place to life for you....

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.
