Beaches, Bays & Seals

Cruise into the heart of Abel Tasman National Park or join us in the Park to explore New Zealand Fur Seal territory.

*PLEASE NOTE: the shallow tidal beach at Torrent Bay often requires a small boat transfer to get you close to shore, and can involve wading through water up to your knees, or higher, depending on conditions.
We recommend you bring extra clothing to ensure your comfort if you are splashed by a wave.
The small boat transfer is not suitable for people with limited mobility or balance. If you are concerned about this, our Adele Island Birdsong and Seals is the best trip for you.
