Come and participate, or simply relax, aboard our three, 10-metre performance catamarans, experiencing high-calibre sailing while gliding through a golden corner of Aotearoa. Prices start at $80. With exclusive charters, sea kayaking, National Park walks, water-taxi rides, and even skydiving to add to your sailing, we have comprehensive Abel Tasman combinations. The sensation is truly amazing when the sails raise, inflate, and send you cruising over the gorgeous waters of the Abel Tasman National Park.

We had a personal tour along the beautiful coast of Abel Tasman NP. The skipper was very cool serving coffee, cookies and very interesting comments. We had a lot of fun and we can warmly recommend to do this trip. Thanks for the great day.

I didn't actually get to take a tour with them because they never bothered to show up. I booked a full day sail and they said they would have the shuttle service pick me early in the morning from Nelson. I waited for at least a half an hour then my hostel tried calling. They said well if no one... More

I'm so sorry that you never got to experience our sailing tour, as I am sure you would have enjoyed your day. And I'm very sorry that the bus transfer to our sailing base didn't happen as planned for you. We do not provide the transfer ourselves but do provide the free service of booking it for you.

We booked a day out on an overcast day, it was a fantastic day out. Mark was very knowledgable and laid back and even allowed the kids to pull the sails up which they loved. However I would recommend carefully considering the weather as there is no cover on the boat from less then optimal weather and we were all... More

I was impressed from the colores of the water : Turquoise, blue and pale blue. It was also a kind of adventure to cross the water at ĺow tide. A wonderfull adventure. What I did not like were the irational prices of the water transfers to the track points.It seems that some kind of regulation should be imposed on the... More

We went on a half day walk then followed by the sailing. We had an amazing time! Its perfect when you want to be active and relax on the same day. You do the walk in approx 4 hours with plenty of time to stop and enjoy the scenery. Then before sailing, you can relax at the beach and work... More

We did a half day sailing it was incredible. It is a great way to see the park without having to kayak. You also get a great tan. We loved our guide, he made us tea and coffee and it was a great experience!

We spent a full day with our 4 kids (ages 3-9) and had a wonderful time. Our Skipper, Sean, was a knowledgable sailor who took us to a secluded cove for us to have lunch (which we brought, although buying it was an option) and a bit of playing at the beach and exploring. He was able to tell us... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our day out on the catamaran; my youngest son really enjoyed taking the controls and being 'in charge of the steering'. Being out on the water was extremely relaxing and the views spectacular. The information about what we were seeing and in particular about the conservation work and restoring natural New Zealand birds to the area was... More

After researching the options for a 3 day catamaran charter through the Abel Tasman coast and Bays, the 13.5 meter Jamarah out of Nelson was a clear leader. The experience that Captain Martin provided proved to be far more than expected!! My wife and I met two other couples (new to us) at the pier and Martin had us all... More
