Anyone have any suggestions for an un-guided ~4 hour, hiking/kayaking/taxi trip in Abel Tasman? (We are staying in Moteuka 9-11 March.)
We thought it would be nice to kayak up the coast (explore coves and islands), ditch the kayaks, do some hiking & hang out at the beach (a couple of hours), then return via water taxi.
Specific recommendations would be appreciated (tour company, times of day, kayak launch location, hiking locations, etc).
We are both athletic with some kayaking experience, and in average/good shape, but we don't want to have to paddle too long against the current. We are avid hikers.
