We went on the Abel Tasman Sea Shuttle service first from Kaiteriteri all the way up to Totaranui & then got dropped off at Anchorage on their way back, we walked to Watering Cove from there (caution: steep hill to start!) & met our kayaking guide, Jeremy, there. We waited a while for our lunch to arrive but didn't mind as it was a beautiful spot & eventually we set off, Jeremy was a very good guide & made me feel safe. We stopped at Apple Tree Bay for a cuppa tea & the wind had gotten up on the way, I wasn't feeling so confident about carrying on as it was a headwind & I'm not an experienced water baby! Jeremy ended up having to hook up the tow rope to our kayak to guide us around the corner into Coquille Bay where we ended up ditching the kayaks as it was just too rough for my liking, I was soaking wet & not enjoying it at all. Jeremy then lead us out on a walk through to Marahau which was very easy & pleasant. The only problem was at the end of our trip, we were told we would only have to wait about 10-15 minutes for a ride back to Kaiteriteri but this turned into 45 minutes & as I had gotten wet & was quite exhausted from the ride I got a wee bit grumpy at this stage!! Other than that I think I would have enjoyed it more if it had not been a full on headwind, just unfortunate timing.
