We went with Wilsons and did the full trip and then got dropped off at Medlands where we had lunch and then walked to the swing bridge and back. It was a wonderful trip and really glad that we found time to do it. Beautiful sparkling bays and sandy beaches. We bought the lunch package but would not do it... More

We took a Wilson's Water taxi to Tonga Quarry and a lovely 2 hour walk to Medlands Beach where we had a picnic on the beach. Water taxi picked us up there to return. Glad we made time for this trip.

We visited this at the beginning of a 3 week stay in Nelson. We could not find the information we were looking for (simple guides to the abel tasman park; guides on what to do in Nelson). There was a queue to talk to people who seemed to be specialists in long distance walking or adventures... and they were spending... More

A bit complex regarding travel (hour drive, hour boat trip) before you can start your day...but the scenery is spectacular, and very worth at least a day. There is an eco-resort which if you have time would be a great experience for an over night. We just had lunch there (Pepper's Awaroa Lodge).

The best company to go through for your trip to Able Tasman. Very helpful staff and convenient for me because I travelled without my own vehicle.

Loved the flexibility of the water taxis in the Abel Tasman national park and opportunity to visit Anchorage, a beautiful spot unreachable by car!

The region is awesome. Our absolute favorite now. We will be back next holiday season. The Abel Tasman national park is huge and gorgeous; you can chose from a leisurely boat ride and sunbathing on a beautiful beach to varied degree of hikes and kayaking. Sea lions breeding in dec/jan. The Nelson lakes are beautiful with half day hikes to... More
