What you can expect

Experience the freedom of exploring Golden Bay's stunning coastline at your own pace with our independent kayak hire option. Our top-of-the-line equipment and expert guidance ensure you can paddle through crystal-clear waters, admire breathtaking scenery, and discover secluded coves and beaches. Whether you're a seasoned kayaker or have some experience, our independent hire option is designed for anyone seeking an unforgettable adventure in Golden Bay.

Located closest to Abel Tasman National Park, our base provides access to the ecologically significant Tata Islands, known for their rich flora and fauna. Encounter the largest colony of Little Spotted Shags, playful seals, and, with luck, spot the rare Reef Heron and possibly the elusive Korora, Blue Penguin.
