Amazing day out, it was really enjoyable .. Lee-Ann gave a amazing tour and great cultural experience. Highly recommended. We hired the waka to ourself as we had the number to do so however you can do single hires as well. Thanks again from team Ireland

Callum was a great guide, educational but obviously caring about ensuring everyone including children had a good time. We sang a few Maori songs which were great fun including paddle waving and conch shell blowing to announce our arrival to other people in the area. Thoroughly recommended for a 3 hour tour which flys by.

We had an awesome morning out on the water with Waka Abel Tasman. We are a family of 2 adults, 3 children (ages 2, 5 and 7) and this was one of the highlights of our 4 week trip around the South Island. It was so great to be able to do something together as a family as every other kayak type company had a minimum age of 3 or 4. All three of our kids loved it and it was the perfect length of time for them to be out on the water without getting tired or bored. Our guide was Callum and he was fantastic. Really knowledgeable about the area, he told us some great stories about the history and culture of the things we were paddling through and gave us all a much greater understanding of the surroundings and the strong connection to Maori culture. He was so friendly, engaging and very patient with the kids. They hung onto his every word as he taught them about the natural area around us. He even gave them a go of his traditional Maori shell instruments. We would highly recommend the trip for families with young children, it was a really memorable experience! Thanks Callum and Waka Abel Tasman.

This was the highlight of our week's holiday in the area for all 6 of us! We are a family of 4 with two kids aged 7 and 9 and did this with my sister and brother-in-law visiting from UK. It was awesome to do something different and therefore memorable together. The owners of this operation are so welcoming and clearly loving of and knowledgeable about their home area which shines through. Great mixture of paddling (along with commands in maori)and listening to interesting stories and history of the area. My sons especially enjoyed the short display we learned to do with our paddles on arrival at new shores as if we were a traditional visiting waka party! Love that Maori culture was so integral to the whole morning in language, paddling traditions, stories and land. Highly recommended for all ages and nationalities!

I wasn’t convinced when I found what my wife had booked as it seemed quite expensive for a paddling experience. However, it was worth every penny and was fun, informative and really interesting to find out about the Maori culture. I loved every minute of it and the respect shown for the environment, each other and the sea were totally inspirational which I did not expect to feel and rates as one of my favourite experiences on a long visit to NZ. The beach we went to at Split Apple Rock was beautiful. Thanks for a lovely day with you and your extended family. Kia Ora
