In 1987 Abel Tasman Kayaks and Ocean River Adventure Company started kayak rentals in the Abel Tasman National Park, and formed the foundation of what is now a thriving industry across New Zealand. 20 years later the two joined forces and created New Zealand’s largest kayak company both in size and experience. We now have a team enjoying over 250 years between us.
Many sunny days and many, many paddle strokes later…we can say we’ve grown a little bigger, but have never lost the passion for what we do, or the wonder of this environment. Our focus was, and still is, on safety and on protecting the Park for the benefit of current and future generation.
As the owner of Abel Tasman Kayaks, I feel privileged to have our team introduce this beautiful place that we call home. Enjoy.
