View the spectacular granite coast in comfort.

There's no need for you to go ashore to discover all the spectacular features of the Abel Tasman coast.

  • view famous Split Apple Rock
  • see seals in the natural habitat
  • look out for birds and sea life
  • cruise close to golden beaches, sculpted headlands and offshore islands
  • interpretative commentary from your skipper and crew
  • licensed cafe onboard serves a seasonal menu of light meals, snacks and drinks

It takes only 90 minutes to 3.5 hours to cruise into Abel Tasman National Park.

This leaves you time to explore other attractions and bush walks in the Nelson region. Spend time at Kaiteriteri Beach, famous for its golden sand and calm azure water. Relax at a beachfront cafe, swim, sunbathe or take a bush walk.

If you would like some beach time in the Park, go to our trip finder for a beach stop with walking options.

"Just like kayaking without the paddling."
