Freedom Anchorage

From $105

We provide you with a kayak and all of the safety gear you will need for your day-long kayaking adventure. After a briefing and instructions on how to use the equipment by a friendly kayaking instructor, you set off from Marahau to spend your day exploring the southern stretch of the Abel Tasman at your own pace, on your way through to Anchorage. You leave your kayak on the beach at Anchorage and we’ll have it transported back to Marahau on a water taxi. From Anchorage, you can continue walking north along the Abel Tasman Coastal Track. Alternatively walk back to Marahau (3.5hrs) or catch a water taxi.

We run a daily shuttle bus to Marahau from Nelson and Motueka.  If you don’t have your own transport please give us a call on 0800 80 80 18 to add bus transfers to your booking.
