Abel Tasman boat trip.
We drove to Kaiteriteri from Nelson a distance of 60 kms (1hr ). Once there we picked up our tickets from Wilsons ticket office,which is next to the car park by the beach.They do a trip from Kaiteriteri along the Abel Tasman National Park coastline,stopping off at several places on route.You can then spend the day walking along this beautiful unspoiled coastline with its lovely beachesThe water taxi will then arrange to pick you up at a set time later in the day.
We left the boat at Anchorage Bay then walked around the headland (4km) before ending up on Te Pukatea Bay.
Please note : there are no facilities to buy any drink,food or other items while here.

Fuimos a Kaiteriteri donde salen los catamaranes que recorren el Parque Abel Tasman
Aquí decides que recorrido quieres hacer según las ganas que tengas de caminar .
Te dan un paseo en el que ves los paisajes , los leones marinos , las aves ... y te dejan en la playa que hayas decidido
Después de pasear por la costa puedes coger de nuevo un catamarán para volver a Kaiteriteri .
Es necesario llevar el programa de los barcos con las horas en que llegan a cada playa
We went out to Kaiteriteri where is the departure of the catamarans that travel to the Abel Tasman Park
Here you decide which route you want to do depending ohow much you want to walk ( tramp ).
After a trip where you see the scenery, sea lions, birds ... they leave you on the beach you've decided
After walking along the coast you can catch a catamaran again to return to Kaiteriteri.
It is necessary to take the timetable of the ships with the time they arrivie at each beach
Water Taxis in the Abel Tasman Nat'l Park
When you get to Marahau, you can take a water taxi into the park, either to a dropoff point of your choice, or to the Awaroa Lodge. On the trip to the Lodge, we stopped at a couple of bays and did a little bit of sightseeing, including looking at seals.

To get down to Abel Tasman from the North Island.
We took the fast ferry "Lynx" to get from Wellington to Picton, taking our car across with us. Then we drove to Marahau to catch our Water Taxi into the Park.
I thoroughly recommend the Lynx for speed and comfort, although it is more expensive than the regular Interisland Ferry.
You can get water taxis around the bay. We got one to anchorage and walked back. You can also hire kayaks, a great way of exploring the area.
