Abel Tasman National Park Day Cruises

Cruising is always a great way to relax and enjoy the surroundings. Go on full day Abel Tasman National Park day cruises near Nelson in New Zealand; or take the half day option if you do not have much time. With great views from your cruise boat, there are plenty of opportunities to take photographs. Spend a day admiring the beautiful blue and green waters of Abel Tasman National Park. Tucked away in South Island’s north-west part, Abel Tasman National Park has the highest number of sunshine hours all throughout the year in New Zealand. It’s always a great destination for nature enthusiasts.

The national park boasts about 40 miles of varied and protected coastline. Along the coasts are stretches of golden sand with outcrops of gigantic boulders that are home to a colony fur seals. You definitely do not want to go ashore as the boats feature comfortable seats with great views on upper and lower decks. Great commentary will be given while you enjoy a light snack or a drink on board. Cruise and walk options are also available to those who want to stretch their legs. Spend some time walking along the idyllic shores and forested coastal tracks of the park.

Trips depart from Kaiteriteri, about 70 minutes’ drive from Nelson.
