Explore Tonga Island Marine Reserve and seal colony, paddling from Onetahuti to Bark Bay. In the high season, include optional walk to Torrent Bay.
Land at Tonga Quarry and walk 15 minutes to the golden expanse of Onetahuti Beach where your Guide will introduce you to your stable, double kayak with full instructions and safety brief. Then it’s on to the water to enjoy exploring some of the best sea kayaking territory on the Abel Tasman coast.
Your Guide will design each day to suit, depending on tides, weather conditions, your interests and abilities. Weather permitting, paddle out to view the antics at the Seal Colony on Tonga Island. Watch out for sea birds and you could see a Little Blue Penguin. Return to the mainland and relax on a golden sand beach, take a short bush or beach walk (optional) before paddling south to Bark Bay. (Approximately 2.5 hours paddling)
In the summer months (8 Oct – 18 April) the Cruise schedule allows an extra 2 hours at Bark Bay to explore the wide, sandy estuary, walk to Bark Bay Falls, swim or laze on the golden sand.
