Kaiteriteri Kayak - Abel Tasman National Park
We are the only kayak company in the Abel Tasman to specialise in family kayak trips. It's simply a fabulous way to explore a stunning environment in peace and tranquility and it makes a fantastic and fun experience for the whole family. We are also the only kayak company to operate from Kaiteriteri Beach – the most sheltered area of the Abel Tasman and a perfect starting point for families and less-experienced kayakers. The coastline that we cover is not only sheltered but also compact. However the area retains all of the features associated with kayaking in the Abel Tasman - as well as the awesome Split Apple Rock!
