High Tide Highlights
Starting in the heart of the Abel Tasman Maine Reserve. Follow the rugged coast north through crystal clear waters, to Shag Harbour, possibly seeing seals and a part of middle earth, making use of the wind, where possible. Take a break on the golden sands, refuel with the complimentary coffee, cake and cookies. Continue your journey entering into the numerous estuaries on the way, or take the wind to the calm bay of the Anchorage and either carry on your journey on foot or take the Aqua Taxi back to Marahau.
Low Tide Highlights
Meet at Old Macdonalds Farm Holiday Park office 8:15 Catch the 9:00am Aqua Taxi to Onetahuti, cruising along beautiful granite coastline and maybe catching a seal basking on a rock before landing on one of the magic beaches that abound. After that do a bit of kayak sailing (wind dependent) to the awesome, and much photographed, Te Pukatea for the Pitthead walk. Then finish off by paddling around the corner at Adele Island ending the day at Watering Cove for your taxi ride back to Marahau.
