Awaroa Sea Kayaks

The northern end of the Abel Tasman National Park offers some of the best sea kayaking opportunities in New Zealand.

We base ourselves from Awaroa Lodge and take advantage of immediate access to the Tonga Island Marine Reserve and Awaroa Lagoon. As the smallest operator in the park, we take pride in delivering the best possible experience on the water every time we run a trip. We are a certified operator and comply with New Zealand’s strict health and safety regulations, including regular auditing and surveillance.

For the 2022/23 summer, we are offering our classic half-day guided kayak tours, stand-up paddleboard rentals, and custom/family kayak tours.

Come and explore New Zealand's iconic beach in the heart of the Abel Tasman National Park!

About Awaroa

Awaroa is regarded by many local guides as the best place to sea kayak in the Abel Tasman National Park. Spectacular granite sea cliffs, golden sand beaches, crystal clear water and the majestic Awaroa Lagoon make for an unforgettable sea kayaking experience. Awaroa Sea Kayaks is the only sea kayak company physically based in the Abel Tasman National Park.

We know the highlights of the area and look forward to sharing this beautiful part of the world with you. Our guides understand the weather patterns and tides, and will cater a half day trip (roughly 3.5 hours long) to make the most of the conditions.

Awaroa Sea Kayaks is based on-site at the Awaroa Lodge. The Lodge offers a range of accommodation options, a bar, restaurant and outdoor pizzeria/beer garden. Staying at Awaroa Lodge and sea kayaking the Awaroa coastline is a wonderful way to experience the Abel Tasman National Park and is bound to be a holiday highlight. You can visit the Lodge website here.
