Abel Tasman National Park is a paradise of white-sand beaches. Home to native seals, dolphins and sea birds, it's the perfect place for a kayaking trip.

Known for its sunshine and calm waters, The Abel Tasman National Park is blessed with some of New Zealand's most spectacular coastline. Paddle your kayak through sheltered waters and stop off on perfect, deserted beaches to explore the depth of the Park. Watch the antics of fur seals and sea birds, and, if you are lucky, you might even spot a pod of playful dolphins or a shy Little Blue Penguin on your journey.
