The Alborn family redeveloped the site into the Abel Tasman Centre and Hooked in 2001. The centre quickly became the social hub of Marahau for locals and visitors alike. In 2018 the Alborn family constructed a brand new base for Marahau Sea Kayaks and Marahau Water Taxis as well as the central administration office for all of their Abel Tasman-based visitor businesses. The overall facility, with the Abel Tasman Centre, Hooked and the new kayaking and water taxi base has set a new standard for the local visitor industry.
