Your day begins at the beautiful seaside enclave of Kaiteriteri. Here you board a water taxi with your guide and travel into the Abel Tasman National Park to Appletree Bay where your walk begins through lush native bush with amazing sea views. Learn about New Zealand’s flora and fauna, and local stories about the Abel Tasman’s characters. If the tides are right and there is time, you will visit our ‘kiwi’ bach on the beachfront where time has stood still. At midday you will walk down to Watering Cove, a golden beach with clear blue water and lunch waiting. Here your guide for the morning will give you into the care of your kayak guide for the next stage of your adventure. You will kayak past beautiful beaches, islands and caves.
