Overview

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.

Excellent Cruise up coast of Able Tasman National Park. Cruise stops at many beaches with the option getting off the boat and taking a hike. You can catch the boat back to the main Harbor at the end of your hike

A fabulous way to sail up the Able Tasman coast stopping at interesting historic and nature spots, especially hearing the bellbirds singing magic. Very comfortable on board and a good amount of time on the beach for lunch and explore before back sailing again. Thanks...More

My wife and I had awesome day out sailing around Abel Tasman National Park. Lots of good facts were given about the history of the area. Much more peaceful and enjoyable than a ferry.

It is always fantastic to turn off the engine and to just relax and listen to the sounds of sailing. We often say it's the peaceful, quiet, relaxing way to experience The Park. Thanks for sailing with us.
