Walk & Water Taxi - Aqua Taxi Abel Tasman
Walk & Water Taxi - Aqua Taxi
The stunning Abel Tasman National Park is New Zealand’s smallest National Park (at only 22,350ha ); however, this amazing area is absolutely bursting with nature’s beauty! Golden sandy beaches, emerald bushland and clear turquoise water await your visit. Take a tour with Abel Tasman Aqua Taxi for your ticket to paradise!
Providing water taxi trips, sea shuttle services, guided tours, seal watching cruises and pack/luggage transport within the National Park, New Abel Tasman Aqua Taxi’s have an option for everyone.
The National Park contains two primary walking tracks – the gorgeous coastal track and the rugged inland hilly track – both of which take three to five days to traverse. For those who want to experience the Park but don’t have time to hike the entire length, there are half and full day unguided walks available, combined with the Aqua Taxi from Kaiteriteri Beach and Marahau.
Full Day Options
The most popular parts of the track have been combined in a package with an Aqua Taxi and walk option.
Seals & Sand
On your boat trip to Onetahuti Bay, you will see the amazing seal colony at Tonga Island. Tonga Quarry gives you an impressive view of the quarry’s remnants, including the drilled slabs of granite that were left. You can walk to either Torrent Bay (3.5 hrs) or Anchorage (4.5 hrs) to where you will meet the boat again and these tracks cross the Falls River Swing Bridge (47m long), which is considered the most picturesque section of the park.
Slice of Paradise
An Aqua Taxi ride along the length of the Abel Tasman National Park takes you Totaranui and then doubles back to either Onetahuti for a 3.5 hr walk to Torrent Bay or to Bark Bay for a 2.5 hr walk to Torrent Bay. On the way, you will stop at Tonga Island to view the playful seals. See the remnants of Tonga Quarry and cross the stunning Falls River Swing Bridge – the most picturesque area of the park. Upon your arrival at Torrent Bay, you will be Taxi’d back home.
Half Day Options
Definitely not half a trip, these options highlight the best that Abel Tasman National Park has to offer.
