Abel Tasman National Park One Day Trips

Travel in style and comfort aboard the Vista Cruise for the same price as a Water Taxi fare. Full day or half-day cruise. Walking and sea kayaking options.

For the same price as a Water Taxi fare, travel with speed, style and comfort aboard Wilsons Abel Tasman’s Vista Cruise.  Relax on board or choose a beach stop.  Laze on the sand, walk the finest coast in the country or paddle through azure waters.

You won’t want to go ashore as you settle into comfortable seating with tables and the best views on both upper and lower viewing decks on the Vista Cruise.  Enjoy a drink, or a light meal at the onboard cafe/bar and discover insights into the coast from the fascinating interpretive commentary.  Spanish, German, French, Chinese and Hebrew translations available.

If you want a bit more action, the easy front loading ramp will get you ashore quickly and comfortably at one of the Park’s idyllic, stretches of golden sand. Then, you can choose to relax in the sun or sit in the shade of the fringing forest. 

Take a walk from 30 minutes to 6 hours along the forested coastal track through sunny groves of Manuka fringing panoramic views over Tasman Bay, or explore shady fern grottos around a crystal mountain stream.  

You can also book guided sea kayaking to explore the spectacular granite coast from the water.  Try a half-day paddle or travel into the heart of the Park aboard the Vista Cruise to kayak with seals in their natural habitat.
