Super well organised, perfectly located and appointed accommodation and the best guides each with their personal insights and connections. We had never been on an organised tour let alone hike or kayak trip so were a bit unsure but It could not have been a better experience. Each day we had flexible itinerary options, food and luggage were taken care of and all we had to do was enjoy the stunning environment. The walking and kayaking was easy enough - we certainly weren’t super fit but turned out we were fit enough. The 5 day option is a great itinerary, two nights in each of the lodges, with plenty of time to actively enjoy or hang out.

Being on the wrong side of 60 and not into hiking we chose to take the 4 hour Wilsons boat trip from Kaiteriteri.
Some amazing photo ops and a very informative crew who provided lots of interesting info as we cruised in and out of bays and made stops up to Totaranui and back.
There was also time at acouple of stops to get off a and look around. You can even get off and catch a later boat if you wish to do some hiking.
Highly recommended.

We did Kaiteriteri to Totaranui coastal cruise which lasts Three and half hours.
Departed from Kaiteriteri and stayed on-board the Vista Cruise to enjoy Abel Tasman experience.
Thoroughly enjoyable cruise unfortunately we encountered cloudy, windy and occasional rain. Not ideal weather but we still enjoyed the experience and scenery.
Staffs were good and helpful.
Commentary on-board was not the best but still managed.
Must do cruise in Abel Tasman National Park. There are numerous options including Kayaking. Walking, spend time on beach or just Cruising.
