Overview

Be ready for pick up in Nelson or Motueka information centre for an action-packed New Zealand day tour in the Tasman region. Let us know upon booking if you wish to be picked up in another location.

Hop aboard our brand new bus with a 12-passenger capacity as we take you on a scenic drive following the coastline on our way to Kaiteriteri. Before we board the cruise boat, take your time enjoying the unfolding coastal scenery and bay views.

While your Driver Guide steers the bus to Totaranui over the Takaka Hill, you depart Kaiteriteri Beach, sailing close to the coast of the Abel Tasman Park (which takes 1 ½ hrs) on your way to Totaranui. You’ll have the option to sit inside or outside the cruise boat, and enjoy tea, coffee and snacks on board.

On reaching Totaranui, make the most of your 30min to admire the spectacular beach and even go for a dip in the pristine sea. We then set off for a drive to the destination next on our list.

Your Driver Guide will pick you up for an incredible 20min drive to amazing bush where you may go for a quick walk.

Following the hike to a lookout is a 10 min drive on our way to Takaka where we take our well-earned break. As a residence of alternative lifestylers, Takaka hums with offbeat character and fittingly offers a bunch of curious shops, excellent lunch options, and fascinating locals. And there’s more! Three kilometres away is the incredible “Waikoropupu Springs” celebrated for its water’s clarity and the sheer volume of its outflow. We will stop here and admire the breathtaking beauty of the surroundings. The Maori considers this site sacred because of its spiritual importance to them.

We cap off the tour with a stunning drive on our way home to Nelson and Motueka over the Takaka Hill. We reach Motueka at around 4.30PM, and Nelson at around 5.30PM.
