Mom and I booked a day in the Abel Tasman National Park to go kayaking and visit the seals in the marine reserve on Tonga Island. If you ever decide to visit the Abel Tasman, kayaking over walking is the way to see it. We took the water taxi from Marahau to Torrent Bay and got to hike 2 hours to Bark Bay before our group with the Sea Kayak Company launched. It was another gorgeous day on the water, calm and perfectly peaceful. Paddling around Tonga Island, we got to get close to a number of fur seals who looked so curious and playful as they stared back at us. Mom’s visit was slowly starting to wrap up, and it was a wonderful day to soak up life in paradise.
