Exclusive small group boat charters in to the iconic Abel Tasman National Park aboard comfortable catamarans. Kayak, swim, hike or just relax on-board on a fully catered 6 hour day-trip. We offer bespoke tours to suit your group.

Drive to Stephens Bay and check in for your PRIVATE day cruise in the Abel Tasman National Park.

This is a 6-hour scenic cruise on board our comfortable catamaran into the beautiful Abel Tasman National Park. Throughout the day we explore along the Abel Tasman coastline; past Split Apple Rock, round sandy bays, Adele and Fisherman Islands and the Tonga Island seal colony.

We provide opportunities to kayak in tranquil lagoons, swim and snorkel from the boat, walk on a beach or through the enchanting Abel Tasman track - or just relax on board and enjoy the skipper’s wealth of knowledge about New Zealand's most enchanting National Park.

The trip includes a delicious platter style lunch of fresh local produce, complimentary wine or beer and refreshments, towels, kayaks and snorkel equipment, sunscreen, insect repellent and an excellent local skipper as your tour guide.

We make a point of ensuring we spend time with wildlife passing through the park. You may expect to see seals, blue penguin, a variety of seabirds and sometimes dolphins, you can also enjoy feeding our pet fish.

We aim to show you the beauty of New Zealand's Abel Tasman National Park and the Tonga Island Marine Reserve in a relaxed, uncrowded and unhurried day. The opportunity to walk through one of the most diverse coastal bush tracks on the Pitt Head Nature Loop (approximately 1 hr) allows stunning views of Te Pukatea Bay and passes an historic Maori Pah site.

As this is a private charter you can talk to the skipper to ensure they cater to your special interests throughout the day.
