We only had one day to walk the Abel Tasman national park. There are at least three or four companies operating water taxis to various points in the park, and we chose Wilson's partyl based on the feedback on tripadvisor. Wilson's operates the largest boat of all the companies around. This has several advantages - the boat is able to lower quite a long ramp, which makes boarding and alighting very easy, probably easier than some of the smaller vessels. The size also makes it more stable, which is a big plus if you are vulnerable to seasickness, like my partner is. On the other hand, the disadvantage is that it takes longer to load and unload. The smaller water taxis had zipped off well before us as it took awhile to get everyone on board, and I think we were waiting for some guests that had shown up late. Wilson's takes care to account for everyone they need to pick up, which is fantastic. The flip side is that with a bigger boat, there's more people that could show up late and hold up the departure.
