Full Day

The title of this outstanding kayaking trip says it all! Putting it simply – the best of the best! Experience the beauty of your surroundings on a water taxi to Onetahuti. From here you will kayak the azure waters to Tonga Island – home of the inquisitive NZ Fur Seal (kekeno) and the shy Little Blue Penguin (kororā).

Disembark from your paddle at beautiful Bark Bay where you can enjoy lunch and cool off with a swim in the crystal clear sea.

Your unguided afternoon walk south will lead you through the most renowned walking section of the National Park. This stretch of the track is bursting with picture perfect scenery and features that are sure to take your breath away.
