Departing every day, year-round from Kaiteriteri, stay onboard the Vista Cruise for a full experience of the spectacular Abel Tasman Coast. Relax at the licensed cafe onboard or choose a beach stop with walking, guided kayaking and Beachfront Lodge Stay options.

During the summer months, choose a morning or afternoon departure to enjoy from 3 to 9 hours in the Park. During the winter months, we fire up the barbecue onboard, so you can order a delicious, flame grilled lunch (vegetarian option available) to make the most of winter sunshine at a sheltered golden cove.

The Wilson family has been welcoming visitors to the region since 1841. The Vista Cruise is the flagship for our win in the 2010 NZ Tourism Awards, “Innovating for Success”.
