Tasman Tour

You start the day with a wonderful guided sea kayak tour along the prestine beaches of the Wainui Inlet and the borders of the Abel Tasman National Park. A place of tranquillity, wilderness and unspoilt nature beauty, far away from the crowded Abel Tasman east coast. Our friendly and knowledgeable guide will fill you in on local tales and feel you safe and comfortable (no previous kayak experience required).

With your stable one or two persons sea kayak you first paddle to the Tata Islands (shag colony) and further on to marvellous archways and golden beaches. Just in time for a break or a dip in the crystal clear waters. Seals, dolphins and blue penguins will be charmed by your company!

Around midday the panoramic deck of our Lodge in Pohara is the decor for a delicious gourmet lunch with a combination of European flavours and local delicacies.

In the afternoon you have the choice of several freedom walks.

The nearby Abel Tasman National Park is one of the most beautiful places on earth… For those who can’t resist this beauty, we have several great suggestions on offer to spoil your afternoon.

Our lodge is only a short drive away from the famous Totaranui Beach, situated in the heart of the Abel Tasman National Park. The remote location is the perfect hideaway to discover the best nature secrets of the Park. We will provide you with a detailed trail map and our own walking descriptions and suggestions.

If you’re not keen on longer walks, you can get the best of our famous Park on a sightseeing tour along the Abel Tasman coastline. The wonderful golden beaches are often miles away from mass tourism. We offer different options from scenic boat trips to combined sightseeing & short-walking experiences. We will take care of all reservations and create the perfect itinerary for you taking into account actual tides and watertaxi services.

If you are more into a relaxing afternoon or just a fervent beach lover, then our Motupipi Estuary is the perfect place to spend your afternoon. We will provide free transport to the Motupipi Inlet where you can start a wonderful one to two and half hours beach walk along the Pohara coastline back to our Lodge. Along the golden sandy beach there are heaps of opportunities to relax or to go for a swim. We call it the perfect recipe for a relaxing ‘chilling out’ afternoon.

This half day guided tour combined with one of our walking options, offers you a relaxed nature experience with a touch of adventure and freedom in a part of the Bay seldom visited by overseas visitors.
