Freedom Anchorage

From $135

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.

For transport between Nelson, Motueka and Marahau we recommend The Better Bus. You can book your transfers online or give them a call on 027 577 6975
