From there, you'll paddle by kayak with your guide to Tonga Island and its flourishing seal colony. Appreciate the beauty of these sleek mammals while you observe them from a distance in their natural environment. Tides permitting, explore the spectacular Tonga Arches, and head south to Bark Bay.After lunch (own expense), you have the option to continue kayaking to Anchorage or leave your guide for a 7-mile (12-km) hike to Anchorage, which includes the Falls River swing bridge. Afterward, catch the water taxi back to Marahau and shuttle back to the base in Motueka, where you're free to access the Wi-Fi or a hot shower.
