We have a similar problem. We need to get from Picton to Marehau.

Have a look at the following transport companies:

Nelson Lakes Shuttles, Atomic Shuttles, Abel Tasman Coachlines. From Nelson it shouldn't be that hard. Getting out of Picton is much more of a pain.

The hardest part may be getting from the airport to Nelson city. I have arrived ther in the past and there were no taxis. I suggest you contact those shuttle companies for times, and arrange a taxi to meet your flight.

When where you intending to walk the track?

I've just been reading an article in the paper about a new service starting up in the busy season which I guess is December thru to February or something like that.

They are going to run a 150 seat catamaran { i'm sure thats not spelt right!]

from nelson port thru to kaiteri could be a good option depending on the time you get in and the time they leave Nelson.

http://www.trekexpress.co.nz services the airport, Picton and Marehau. They do not mention Kaiteriteri but must be driving past it anyway, cos that's the way the road goes.
