    Ha, you reminded me of my own time kayaking in the Milford Sound. I was that annoying person who was slower than everyone else, plus I like to keep a distance because I’m terrible at navigating and keeping the right pace so I either keep bumping into other people or falling way behind. I really didn’t enjoy the experience all that much – I would’ve been fine if it was just a couple of us doing our own thing at our own pace but even the group of 5 was too much pressure.

  2. Hi Jules! This looks like an awesome trip and I’m looking to do the Abel Tasman solo in a couple of weeks, myself. Did you go through a company to organize all of this in advance? I’m curious because it sounds exactly like something I want to do. I’d really appreciate any information on how you planned it! 🙂

    • Hi Kaleena, ah, that’s awesome! How exciting! 🙂

      Yes, if I remember correctly, I think I organised this trip about a week before I was due to go. I emailed a number of companies I found online to get some information on prices and itinerary and these were the guys I ended up going with.

      Mat who I dealt with was super friendly and helpful in answering all my questions. Perhaps send them this post link and they’ll be able to advise you on exactly which itinerary to go for. 🙂

      Good luck and have an amazing time!! So excited for you!
