We had seen the paddle boards and had thought about it a few times, then push came to shove and thought we'd give it a go. Its ADDICTIVE. We loved it. Primary school Grandaughter started off with me on mine and after about ten minutes was on her own one. can't justify buying one so will certainly be factoring it... More

My girlfriend & I had a blast with Milan doing the SUP w/ water taxi. We boarded the water taxi in Marahau, and boated out to Water Cove. Water Cove is a small beach, where we had a nice sack lunch, from Park Café. Afterwards, we headed south on our boards back to Marahau boat ramp. We had great weather!... More

Me and two friends had always wanted to try paddle boarding so we thought what better place to try it than Kaiterteri. It was a lovely hot day when we decided to try something different. The man there hiring them was a laugh and gave us great tips on how to paddle board. It was so much fun , loved... More

Today we did a one hour self guided paddle board tour of marahau in Abel Tasman. Very easy to master and lots of fun. You get to see much more than kayaking too. Milan was great and explained everything in advance.

This is something that we had planned to do for so long and we were not disappointed. Kelvin was extremely patient with a couple of ‘older youngsters’ and took time to getting us going. With plenty of encouragement we were both up and way in no time. We highly recommend Abel Tasman Paddle boarding, go on give it a go!

Finally on my 2nd to last day in NZ I got to paddleboard. I had been cancelled on in Rotorua and it got too windy on my 2 other attempts. I called Kahu Kayaks that gave me Kelvin's number and I easily set up a tour with him for early the next morning. He picked me up in Marahau and... More

We had an excellent half day with Kelvin learning to paddle board and it was awesome and we can't wait to go out on the water again! None of us had surfed or tried anything like this before, and within 1/2 hour we all were able to get around and take in the beauty of the Abel Tasman National Park... More
