Cruised up the coastline of the Abel Tasman National Park - scenery was amazing, wildlife including fur seals great and good weather - what more can you want on holiday??!! Driving around the area we hadn't seen nearly so much of the rugged cost so this was a great opportunity for both of us to admire the views.

We booked to be dropped of at Apple Tree bay and we walked to Anchorage where we were picked up by the Shuttle going back to Kaiterteri. Drinks and snacks served on board and not pricey. The captain gave a little commentary and useful advise. Booked at the kiosk in Kaiteriteri.

Took full 3 1/2 hour cruise which was good but too long, as the return trip covers same territory. Best to use boat as shuttle and hike part of coastal walk, with drop off and pick up, as this would have been great. Our agent had not allowed for this activity. Very good skipper with informative commentary. Recommend this company.

We chose the Shuttle company because they had a 3 day pass which allowed us to hike most of the Coast Trail without camping or staying overnight in the park The pass was discounted quite a bit The staff were all very friendly. The boat captains jokes went over most people's heads as most of our fellow sea travelers weren't... More

I took the Full Park Scenic Cruise first from Kaiteriteri to Totaranui which was which brilliant. Gorgeous scenery and chance to spot some fur seals on the way. Then stepped ashore for a 12km walk from Medlands Beach to Anchorage. It's easy to follow the track and you see lots of people on the way. The company run a very... More

Picked up shuttle at Kaiteriteri and taken up to Awaroa lodge and dropped off. Walked back to Tonga Quarry which took nearly two hours to be picked up. Journey out was interesting, saw the 'split apple' rock, arches and seals on an island. Commentary entertaining and staff helpful and knowledgeable. A good day out.

We went on the Abel Tasman Sea Shuttle for our walk along the Abel Tasman Track. We were dropped at Medland's Beach at 10am (leaving Kaiteriteri at 9am) to hike the 11.5km back to Anchorage Bay. Our children aged 12,11 and 8 managed the hike well. We got to Anchorage Bay by 1.45pm so caught an earlier boat to the... More
