For 30 sun-drenched years kayak rentals has been the sole focus of our business. That means we know what’s waiting to be discovered deep within the living park. Seals, caves, dolphins, rugged coastline, golden sand beaches …they’re out there…and more. That heritage also makes us uniquely qualified to prepare our clients so they feel safe and confident. As the only company specializing in kayak rentals, we provide a comprehensive safety briefing. This covers everything: from packing, kayak technique, weather and planning/modifying the journey, stowage and sea-conditions, map interpretation, to those important emergency procedures. We also run through background information from looking after the top quality gear to enjoying the purpose built base facilities with hot showers, spa pool and free car parking. So when you’re serious about getting a taste of freedom, come and see us at Abel Tasman Kayaks - Kayak Rentals and Do It Your Way! Priced from $69 per person. Life jackets and safety equipment provided.
Back in 1987, Ocean River embarked upon an exciting journey to become the leading rental sea kayaking operator in the Abel Tasman National Park. In 2009 we decided it was time for a name change to better reflect our geographical area and what we do, we are now called Abel Tasman Kayaks - Kayak Rentals. Many sunny days and many, many paddle strokes later we can say that we've grown a little bigger over the years, but we have never lost the passion for what we do, or the wonder of this environment. Our focus was, and still is, on protecting the Park for the benefit of current and future generations. And it's this blend of passion, professionalism and personalization that has created one of the largest kayaking operators in the country. As the owner of Abel Tasman Kayaks Freedom Rentals, I feel privileged to have our team introduce this beautiful place that we call home. Enjoy.
