Abel Tasman Kayaking: Kayak & Pitt Head Nature Loop
Begin your day with a guided kayak adventure, paddle alongside the 12 stunning beaches between Marahau and Observation beach, and marvel at the beauty of the Astrolabe Islands (the kayak tour can also be done in the reverse, starting and finishing at Observation Beach). Enjoy a delicious complimentary lunch before swapping your paddle for walking shoes and exploring the pristine streams, native bush and breath-taking scenic lookouts as you take your unguided walk from Observation Beach to Anchorage and on to the Pitt Head Loop. Make sure you have your camera at the ready to snap the expansive views from Te Pukatea Bay - one of the Abel Tasman's hidden gems, and breathe that ocean air in deep! Upon your return to Astrolabe Beach, you will be collected by a water taxi for a scenic cruise back to Marahau.
