Abel Tasman National Park Great Day Out

Discover the length of the spectacular AbelTasman Coast from Kaiteriteri to Totaranui and include a walk to make the most of one day in the Park.

Wilsons Abel Tasman’s new Great Day Out has been developed to make the most of a day in New Zealand's best coastal National Park.

Discover why this family business was judged best Visitor Attraction and Experience (small and medium) at the 2010 Tourism Awards, as you discover the full variety of stunningly beautiful forests, golden beaches, islands and sculpted headlands.

Travel in style and comfort with full interpretative commentary aboard the Wilson’s Vista Cruise. From Kaiteriteri, glide through the sheltered waters of the Astrolabe Roadstead and cruise into picturesque forested coves.

In Tonga Island Marine Reserve, pause to watch the antics at Tonga Island Seal Colony then continue along the golden stretches of the northern beaches to Totaranui.

With the cafe and bar on board the Vista Cruise, you won't want to leave the comfort of the seats with tables on both upper and lower viewing decks.

The front loading ramp makes beach transfers safe and easy so keep your feet dry when you disembark at historic Tonga Quarry beach and walk 4 kms to Medlands Beach, over the forested Tonga Saddle and around the waterfall trail at Bark Bay.

At picturesque Medlands Beach, rejoin the Vista Cruise for an early return to Kaiteriteri at 3.45 pm or spend some time relaxing, swimming or exploring around idyllic Bark Bark and choose a later pick up to return to Kaiteriteri at 5.45 pm.

Cost for this Great Day Out is $74 per adult, $34 per child. Free coach transfers from Motueka and reduced coach fares from Nelson are available.

The Wilson family has been welcoming visitors to this stunning region since 1841. Their innovations are still winning awards so you get to switch off and enjoy while the Wilson’s team takes care of the details.

The Great Day Out is only one of many options offered by Wilsons Abel Tasman. Day trips start at $32 per person including boat cruising, walking and guided sea kayaking options. 

There are trips to suit all budgets and schedules from 2 hours in the Park to overnight trips staying at the Wilsons comfortable beach front lodges.  Check out their comprehensive website for more details www.AbelTasman.co.nz
