Sea Kayak Abel Tasman National Park
Nau mai, Haere mai
Welcome to R&R Kayaks
Rets and Ro welcome you to the breath taking Abel Tasman National Park – the place we call home. We are a small family owned sea kayak company with many years of industry experience in kayak tours and rentals, and extensive local knowledge (we are born and bred locals).
The Abel Tasman National Park is a very special place to our family (whānau) and we are excited to share its history, stories and natural beauty with you.
"We are a small company with a big heart"
BOOKING ASSURANCE (covid-19 response)
Due to the current situation we all find ourselves in post Covid-19 we have decided to implement our new 'Booking Assurance'.
Our Booking Assurance gives you the assurance that if you make any booking with us and if you are unable to travel due to government travel restrictions, covid-19 testing or self isolation then you have the flexibility to change your booking date or if this does not suit a full refund will be provided.
Please see our terms & conditions page for full T&C's
KO WAI TATOU? - WHO ARE WE?
We are a young, local family with two children, Jett and Monroe. We have both grown up in the area and have been visiting the National Park since childhood days.
We love to live and work in such an incredible place and it really is our privilege to show you one of New Zealand's gems.
Lauretta (Rets) grew up in the Golden Bay area, the northern end of the National Park. She has been primary school teaching for over 14 years and still works as a teacher during the winter months.
Rohan (Ro) grew up in the Motueka area, the southern end of the National Park. He has a real passion for the outdoors and has been working in the sea kayak industry in the Abel Tasman from 2002, ever since he left Motueka High School. Rohan is also a member of the SKOANZ (Sea Kayak Operators Association of New Zealand) and is a sea kayak assessor for NZOIA (New Zealand Outdoors Instructors Association). He has been a big part of the introduction and development of regulations/qualifications in the sea kayak industry and is on the Technical Committees for NZOIA and Skills Active for writing and evaluating sea kayak qualifications.
Between the two of us we know this place literally like the back of our hands. So let us take the stress out of life and take you on a relaxing break in the Abel Tasman National Park.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Rets, Ro, Jett & Monroe
ABEL TASMAN - NEVER BEEN BETTER
The Abel Tasman has never been better to visit than right now. With the current world situation this the chance for all locals and kiwis to get out and experience their own backyard.
The national park is over full of bird life thanks to the amazing work by the Abel Tasman Birdsong Trust and Project Janszoon, the seal colonies are growing day by day as a result of the marine reserve and the great work DOC has been doing to protect the seals, penguins and dolphins.
Do you remember or have those life long memories of going on a summer holiday with your family or friends when you were growing up? Now is the best time to come and visit the Abel Tasman and make new life long memories with your friends, work colleagues and family.
