My partner and I did the Swing Bridge, Bush & Beach (Trip #6) with extended cruise on 11 Feb a perfectly still and sunny day. The commentary on the cruise was informative without being intrusive, the staff were friendly despite being busy. We were lucky with the tides so we took the low-tide track from Torrent Bay to Anchorage to... More

We opted for the 5 day guided Kayak trip with Wilsons and cannot fault the experience in any way. The booking experience was assured, efficient and personal. Despite the huge numbers of people contacting the staff all the communications were thoughtful, clear and relaxed. The provision of equipment, transport and information was excellent. Our guides, Whitey and Heather, were professional,... More

This was a great walk well led by two great guides, accommodation was first rate and the meals provided were of a high standard. To my mind this was one of the best and most enjoyable guided walks that we have undertaken and we have done a number in NZ and overseas. It wasn't cheap at NZ$1400 a head but... More

We got the 3 day pass which is valid for 7 days so we could make the most of the weather. The boat is big and comfortable and easy to board. Commentary was interesting and the staff were super friendly.

The track is relatively easy and very picturesque especially when the sun is shining, showing off the beach and sea colours at their best. My wife and I did this walk in Jan 2017. We were taken by boat to Totaranui and walked back to Marahau over the 5 days. Wilsons are clearly very experienced at these guided walks and... More

Terrific national park at the Northern end of NZ's South Island, no drive through, this is a visit on foot (or by boat) place with wonderful walks in Pacific rainforest. Just listen to the birds (if you're fortunate enough to escape some of the crowds that like to tramp through hers) Love it !

A perfect family adventure, not too difficult or too easy. Just right amount of paddling. Great destination too - Split Apple Rock is quite impressive. A great introduction to paddling with kids!! Really enjoyed it.

Great boat service into the Abel Tasman NP with new boats. Big thanks to Adam the skipper who helped my sister and friends last year by fixing their broken tramping boots. Awesome.

We took the 3 day, 2 night package walking the Abel Tasman Track from Totaranui to Marahau. Plus points: - a guide was provided which gave security for the walkers if anything should have gone wrong (VHF radio, first aid kit) - the guide was well informed about the flora and fauna en route - the staff at the lodges...
