2 Day Kayak: Marahau - Onetahuti/1 Day Walk Onetahuti - Totaranui

Spend three days in the stunning Abel Tasman. The first two days see you kayaking from Marahau through to Onetahuti.  We collect your kayak for you on day two and leave you to walk North through to the last water taxi pick up point Totaranui.  The bush through here is lush and the coastal views amazing!  We collect you at the end of day three when the water taxi retraces your route back to Marahau.
