My grandson and I spent six hours in the Abel Tasman EcoTour boat, with Justin. The weather was superb, and the tour was incredible. Justin tailored the day to suit a teenage boy by talking through with him what interested him, what he expected from the day and what his interest in the outdoors was. I am a local and have explored the Abel Tasman with my Dad, and friends for years. But Justin had a lot of awesome places to show us and we both learnt a lot. Rock formations, seal pups frolicking in a protected harbour, stingrays burying themselves in the sand, huge adult whitebait living in creeks, local legends, Falls river suspension bridge - and morning tea and lunch stops along the way. My grandson is very keen to go back with his family. An absolute treat for us both. Thankyou.

We thoroughly enjoyed our day out on the water with Justin yesterday. Great boat and Justin was such a great tour guide, giving us interesting information throughout the trip. He obviously is passionate about the Abel Tasman park and it shows in his enthusiasm and willingness to go the extra mile! He is a keen conservationist and showed us many interesting aspects of the wildlife and flora and fauna in the park. Thank you, Justin, it was an amazing day out and we learnt so much!

Our 4 hr trip with Justin (guide/skipper) could not be faulted. Justin’s knowledge of the wildlife and geographical features was great. We had a very inquisitive great grandson with us and Justin went out of his way to interact with him which he did brilliantly. He went out of his way to find blue penguins to view, and to hit land to see Adult whitebait and weka. The juvenile seals perched on rocks were also a highlight.

After having finished my stint on the Bachelorette NZ I was in need of a much deserved holiday! While on our trip in Nelson we were taken on an awesome day cruise by Abel Tasman Eco Tours. The bro Justin looked after us really well and we were so impressed by his knowledge of the area and its rich history. Abel Tasman eco tours are contributing financially to the growth and protection of the national park and I would highly recommend the tour to others seeking to learn more about the area while soaking in the awesome views! Regards, Matt Bidwell and co

We enjoyed a fabulous day out with Justin, such a nice, friendly and very knowledgeable guy whose passion for the Abel Tasman is so real and evident as he shared information and experiences with us. The day was so interesting, we learnt so much about the history and geology of the area as well as expanded our understanding of the flora and fauna. A really enjoyable day that we would highly recommend to anyone, you couldn't help but have a great day in such a beautiful place! Thanks so much :-)
