Cruise and Walk the Abel Tasman National Park

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from $189 USD / Adult
Your transfer to the small settlement of Kaiteriteri showcases the Tasman region's panoramic farmland, coastal vistas, famous orchards, hops farms, and vineyards. Upon arrival you'll board a comfortable Vista Cruise catamaran from the golden sands of Kaiteriteri Beach for an approximate 35 minute sailing that takes you into Abel Tasman National Park-a land and maritime park. Onboard, relax on the upper and lower viewing decks as you cruise past the islands in the sheltered waters of the Astrolabe Roadstead and enjoy a picnic style lunch on board. At Anchorage Bay, you'll leave the boat and venture ashore to follow the Pitt Head Loop Track. This 2 mile walk takes you through Kanuka Forest and past Pukatea Bay to Pitt Head, the site of the ancient Maori "pa" (fortified village). Today, the lovely views of the coast and evidence of earthworks are all that remain of this strategic site.
  • Embark on a scenic cruise into the Abel Tasman National Park-a land and maritime park.
  • Relax on board a catamaran and enjoy a picnic-style lunch whilst observing the spectacular scenery.
