My daughter, friend and I spent two nights/three days (really 2 &1/2) on the combination Kayak/Walking tour with Wilson Experience in Feb. Apparently, this tour company is owned by a fellow who either owns, or has exclusive access to the two lodges that are in the park; Torrent Bay and Meadowbank Homestead - Awaroa; both, very nice accomodations, but not available in the high season (as I was told anyway) unless booked as part of the Wilson Exp. Tours. This was a very nice tour, and the food and the lodges excellent. We had wonderful dinners and rooms both nights. Only complaint was that the starting day was a bit disorganized. Apparently one could hike, not Kayak, but nobody mentioned this to us. And the guides can be a bit too chatty for me, but that's a personal issue for me, I suppose. One can only hear so much about the botanical diversity of Abel Tasman before you realize that if we just hiked at a normal pace, we'd get to our destination too soon. It's also a bit pricey; I paid about $2,500 USD for three of us for two nights; wine is extra.
