Skip the crowded ferry around Abel Tasman National Park and choose a more hands-on, down-to-earth way of exploring the coast on this waka paddling tour. Paddle up to Toka Ngawhā (Split Apple Rock) with your small group and immerse yourself in Māori culture and customs along the way, learning karakia, paddle commands and a waka salute – all in te reo Māori.
- Start your haeranga (journey) with a mihi whakatau, a formal Māori greeting
- Learn about the Māori history of the Park and its surroundings from your guide
- Swimming and sunbathing opportunities on your arrival at Split Apple Rock
- Early start: back in Kaiteriteri in time for lunch – and any afternoon bookings
