Cruise the beautiful waters Abel Tasman National Park and enjoy an amazing coastal walk on this full day adventure!
Starting in Kaiteriteri (with transfers from Nelson available), you'll board your comfortable catamaran and start by cruising to Medlands Beach. There's wildlife, pristine coastline and untouched forests to take in as you cruise along, while your skipper shares the history of the area and tells interesting facts. You'll also see a number of famous sights including Split Apple Rock, Te Pukeatea Bay, Adele Island, Fisherman Island, Torrent Bay and the local fur seal colony.
After approximately 1 hour, you'll arrive at Medlands Beach, where you will disembark and then start your scenic walk to Anchorage Bay. There is a short side track to the South Head Lookout, a short (but steep) side track leading to the secluded Sandfly Bay which is well worth a visit, and excellent views from the famous Falls River Bridge where you may see kayakers or seals in the river below. The track continues through native forest, arriving at Torrent Bay where there are high and low tide tracks to Anchorage Bay. The high tide track is longer, more scenic, and offers access to the lovely Cleopatra's Pool.
Once in Anchorage Bay, you'll re-board the catamaran and return to Kaiteriteri, seeing Sandfly Bay and Falls River as part of the return cruise.
