Trip Info

Your adventure begins at beautiful, tidal Marahau, where you and your guide will begin the Abel Tasman Coastal Track. You will walk through the beautiful nature of New Zealand for just under two hours, through lush native bush, bordered by pristine golden beaches. The track then winds down to our authentic “Kiwi” bach, built early last century. Here, you will learn about this historic getaway, while you and your fellow explorers relax and have a leisurely lunch, followed by a swim or beach stroll.

In the early afternoon, you and your guide will be uplifted by a water taxi. You will then cruise north along the Abel Tasman coastline, past deserted beaches and secluded bays, hopefully seeing some playful seals or penguins on the way. You will disembark for a short time at Onetahuti Beach, before traveling by water taxi out of the Abel Tasman to Kaiteriteri, arriving in the mid to late afternoon.
