msk - marahau sea kayaks
exploring the abel tasman national park by kayak since 1986
The Abel Tasman National Park’s crystal clear waters and golden-sand beaches are set against a backdrop of lush native rainforest. All of these elements combine to make the Abel Tasman New Zealand’s premiere location for sea kayaking.
Marahau Sea Kayaks has a full range of half-day, full-day and multi-day trip options. Whether you choose to join a guided or unguided trip, we’ve got the best combinations of kayaking, walking, water taxi transfers and accommodation options to suit you.
There are two basic kayaking options; freedom rentals and guided kayaking trips. Guided trips allow you to tap into the local knowledge of an experienced guide and expert kayak instructor. Freedom rentals provide you with the option to paddle into the Park under your own steam and according to your own schedule.
why choose msk?
The Abel Tasman National Park is New Zealand’s premiere location for sea kayaking and MSK has the best location, facilities and guides to help you get the most out of your adventure.
Our base is located smack-bang in the middle of the Abel Tasman Village. Not only are we the closest to the Marahau Beach from where all trips in the Abel Tasman begin but we’re also on the same site as our water taxi base, general store and waterfront cafe and beer garden. Just to round things off, we’ve got accomodation on site too with the Marahau Beach Camp right across the road!
Constructed in 2018, our brand-spanking new kayak base is a thing of beauty. We haven’t cut any corners with our kayaking gear either. We use only modern touring kayaks and premium quality soft-gear, all of which is well maintained.
We’re passionate about our little slice of paradise; the Abel Tasman National Park. You’ll find that our passion shines through in everything we do. We genuinely want you to have an amazing experience with us.
