... It is a really nice warm sunny day. We got dropped off at Arowoa Bay. This is the only place where there is a lodge and a cafe. If you are staying here - the water taxi brings you in and a sand buggy meets the boat to take your bags - and the guests have to walk. We watched them do it.

After partaking refreshments we started down the Abel Tasman track. We are being picked up at 4.15 at Tonga Quarry which is about 9km away.

Steph had managed to check her self out of the hostel and got into where we ...

The Nature Splendour of Abel Tasman Marine Park

A travel blog entry by keithandkim


... to love paddling, it all started back home with the canoe and a semi-whitewater kayaking trip in Kimberley. But, this really cements that fact that we find a real connection with nature being out in the water right along side it.

With a long couple days of fun behind us now, we settled in for our last night at Marahau. Tomorrow we are heading up to the tip of the South island, as recommended by our kayaking guide.

Much love
