We did the half day sailing trip in Abel Tasman NP, went with the water taxi to the beach and then sailed back to Kaiteriteri. We have a nearly 2 yr old and a 4 yr old and it was a fantastic trip for those little ones. Lots of space, a very knowledgeable skipper who showed us baby seals and told us stories about the surroundings. Highly recommend this trip, very lovely people in a great region!

We had an absolutely idyllic day in the Abel Tasman. Sailing along the coastline is a totally relaxing experience with the breeze in your hair and just the sound of the water lapping against the hull. We had time on shore at Anchorage, and another little (unnamed?) beach so we could go for several swims and have a wander through the bush. The pace was relaxed, giving us the flexibility to explore the coastline and make the most of the changing tides. The scenery is just magic - photos don't do justice to the incredible colours and the clearest water you can imagine. Martin is a great skipper, giving interesting info about the history and geography of the area, but also just allowing us to absorb it all quietly too. The whole day was a fantastic way to catch up with friends in the most beautiful surroundings. Active and ourdoorsey but super relaxing too. I loved the serenity of this journey, powered mostly by the wind and knowing we were being gentle on the planet.

A great option to enjoy a scenic sail to Anchorage and walk the Abel Tasman track back to Marahau. The customer service was fantastic and Jan-Maree offered good information about the self-guided walk part of the tour. The boat trip was relaxing and allowed for scenic viewing of Split Apple Rock. Highly recommended.
