The saying goes 'Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons' you certainly get to see a lot of the colour gold in the Abel Tasman during Autumn. Golden beaches and crisp clear Autumn days makes for ideal kayaking conditions and the perfect way to recharge the soul.
After a safety briefing in Marahau head out and explore the Southern Astrolabe area included the predator free Adele Island. The birdsong and baby seals will take your breath away. Take your time and explore up the coast to Anchorage or Bark Bay. Day two explore up and around the Tonga Island Marine Reserve before being picked up by water taxi and returned to Marahau. This is a cool trip that covers 25km of coastline over 2 days. For the real explorers add on a few more kilometres for those side trips into the lagoons and rivers.
Recommended hut: Anchorage or Bark Bay. Hut pass included in price which we book on your behalf.
