The Abel Tasman National Park has been the mecca for sea kayaking in New Zealand for over 30 years. With its crystal clear waters and golden-sand beaches set against a backdrop of lush native rainforest the Abel Tasman coastline is perfect for exploration in a sea kayak.
Marahau Sea Kayaks (MSK) has been locally owned and operated since it was established in 1986. The company started out with a couple of kayaks operating out of a shed as part of the Marahau Beach Camp. As the Abel Tasman National Park’s reputation as New Zealand’s premium location for sea kayaking grew, so did MSK. Marahau Sea Kayaks is owned by the Alborn family who have invested heavily in the business since they purchased it in 2014. This has included a fleet of new kayaks, completely new softgear, the rebuild of all operating facilities as well as the construction of a brand new, state-of-the-art base in 2018.
