Marahau Adventurer

From $649

Start your day with a stunning scenic flight in our luxury helicopter from Motueka Airport to Awaroa. Along the way you’ll be treated to breathtaking views of the Abel Tasman Coastline as well as orchards, vineyards, rivers, granite cliffs and views across Tasman Bay.

We’ll drop you at Awaroa where you’ll walk for one hour along the Coastal Track before meeting your kayak guide at Onetahuti. From there you will set off on a truly unique adventure through the Abel Tasman. You’ll paddle through the magical Tonga Island Marine Reserve with opportunities to view seals before stopping for a catered picnic lunch at one of the Park’s magnificent golden beaches. You’ll get a chance to explore the area to swim, or simply to lounge on the beach.

From here you continue paddling to Anchorage, one of the Abel Tasman’s most popular beaches, and then take an exhilarating water taxi ride back to Marahau (the start of the Abel Tasman Coastal Track). Travelling by water taxi allows you to get closer to the action before you wind up on the Marahau Waterfront enjoying a complimentary beverage at Hooked; the cafe and beer garden.
