Cruise, Walk, and Sail in Abel Tasman National Park

By Abel Tasman Sailing Adventures
About
Explore the National Park with a morning water taxi, a short walk and an afternoon sail. Board your water taxi at 10.30 am at Kaiteriteri Beach and cruise into the Abel Tasman National Park. Cruise by the iconic Split Apple Rock, and Fisherman and Adele Islands where you may see the NZ Fur Seals. After 35 minutes you arrive at Anchorage Bay where you have time to walk the Pitt Head loop track (walk time approximately 1 -1.5 hours). This walk takes you to Te Pukatea Bay - a quiet bay and one of the crews favourite beaches in the National Park. Walk back to Anchorage to meet the skipper and join the sailing catamaran departing at 1.15pm. Catch the sea breeze for a 3 hour sail further into the Park and back to Kaiteriteri. Along the way expect to see secluded coves, islands, golden sand beaches, Bush clad coastline, pristine clear waters and native wildlife. Complimentary tea/coffee and juice is provided on board the sailing catamaran.

      A bliss-full day skimming across turquoise waters
      My husband and I did the full-day sail -- a delightful, memorable experience and a highlight of our month holiday-ing in NZ. The catamaran was modern and "pristine clean", departure organized and on time. We were blessed with a sunny blue-bird sky. Weather wasn't 'swimmingly hot' so we were glad of cozy blankets they made available. There is simply nothing sweeter than being under sail, sitting on the front deck perch with the wind on your face, and watching emerald waters skim by!! Heaven. Scenery and deserted beaches along the way - epic. The Skipper (Mark) was highly experienced and capable and conscientious. His assistant crew gal (Claudia) was committed to making our experience positive, funny as heck, and authentically engaged with us - we immediately loved her and her stories. One small note -- set expectations with respect to what wildlife you'll see - you might see a lot, or you might not! Certainly no reflection of the folks running the trip.

      A walk in nature followed by an afternoon cruise, yes please
      Beautiful walk, easy to follow. Afternoon cruise topped every expectation. The catamaran was spotless, the never ending supply of tea, coffee and cookies, the crew beyond friendly and super knowledgeable. 11/10!

      Lovely boat trip
      Really enjoyed this boat trip and self guided walk. The boat was great, really pleasant sailing and nice occasional commentary from the skipper. We ordered the picnic - which maybe wasn’t worth the price - but very convenient to have the option of ordering it. We took the boat in the morning and walked the afternoon, but I’d suggest doing it the other way around - then it’s super convenient to have them bring a picnic for you and you’ll be ready for a swim at Anchorage before boarding the boat.

      Fantastic day out with Abel Tasman Sailing Adventures
      We had a great day out on the full day sailing adventure, in fantastic weather. Mark and Claudia, our crew, provided lots of interesting info on the National Park, the local flora & fauna etc., in a relaxed, fun style. We were lucky to see not just lots of fur seals and some blue penguins (difficult to spot), but a pod of about 50 dolphins, who played around the yacht for for c 30 mins - twice! Highly recommend.

      Memorable sailing in Abel Tasman NP
      It was an amazing experience on a clean and comfortable catamaran. We watched Splitted Apple rock, saw seals and baby seals, had lunch at the beautiful Anchorage bay. I even had time, for a short walk to Te Pukatea bay in lunch time. The lunch was delicious sandwich, soft cakes and apple. Captain Nik and his help Claudia were super attentive and helpful, providing many information regarding the national park, animal life, sailing. We even had the opportunity to drive the catamaran. Thank you Captain Nik and Claudia to make this day so memorable for us!

      Great day out
      Great day out sailing along the Abel Tasman coastline with informative commentary from the crew as appropriate. Stopped for an hour and ate lunch on a lovely quiet beach. It was fairly windy out at sea so was exciting at times. Crew were very knowledgeable & happy to answer questions. We covered quite a long distance.

      Relaxing Sail in Beautiful Waters
      My husband and I had a beautiful sail in a very clean and comfortable catamaran. From the water, the National Park is a pretty series of coves and bays. Captain Mark and first mate Claudia were friendly and eager to make sure we had an optimal experience. The bag lunch included a delicious fresh sandwich, fruit, and two desserts. We would highly recommend this cruise.

      Wonderful Day!
      After walking the coastal track this was a great way to see the park from the water. We enjoyed seal spotting on Adele Island and caught brief glimpses of dolphins. The wind picked up in the afternoon so we could sail properly and appreciate what a great boat this is. Thanks to all the team and Mark our skipper for giving us a day to remember.

      Enjoy the stunning coastline!
      A wonderful journey along the Abel Tasman coast, which is stunning! The skipper Mark and in particular Richard who was crewing, were friendly and informative. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars was because we weren’t properly under sail. However, that’s no fault of theirs. Had the wind have been up it would have been 5 stars all the way. Made friends on the cruise too resulting in a great day!

      The best boat trip to date
      Our fourth boat trip to date and easily the best. We were superbly looked after by Nick and Claudia. Great sailing, so many beautiful bays, loads of opportunities to jump in and swim, golden sands, yummy lunch. Some stepped off half way and walked back while others enjoyed the boat all day. Watch the sun especially of swimming but definitely try this trip.

      A 10 out of 10 experience!
      Everything about the trip was amazing - Martin was a great skipper, told us many interesting facts about the region throughout the day. We were so luck with the weather conditions, it was super sunny but there was also enough wind that we could have the full sailing adventure for most of the day - not motoring! The vessel is beautiful and spacious and the facilities great.

    Easy booking through Victor, description very accurate. Ran right on time. Big, comfortable catamaran sailboat for the afternoon sail. Number of passengers allowed makes for non-crowded conditions. Friendly crew. It would be very nice if they added a 3 or 5 kayak's on the boat (as a competitor does) so that passengers can take a short kayak during the hour between when the sailboat boat arrives at Anchorage Bay and when it departs an hour later if they don't want to hike or swim.
