    Highly recommend! Paddling area is limited to small area. But It is comprehensive if you think about your safety. It's gonna be really good experience even you don't have kayaking experience.

    Nice spot but limited and crowded

    A bit disappointed as the area you are allowed to paddle in is very tiny - so 30min is more than enough! We were more looking for a nice treck of several hours but not possible there. We wish we knew. Otherwise great service and good equipment. A lot of people this day - not the adventure we were looking for.

    Thanks for taking the time to leave your review. Sorry you didn't get quite the experience you wished Laure. but you wouldn't have been able to take the kayak for several hours on a Bookme deal in any case! And yes, it certainly does get busy during the Summer months at Goat Island. Sounds like you might need to do sea kayaking in the Abel Tasman? All the very best and thanks for your kind comments about our service.
