Very efficiently operated. Excellent 'skippers' of boats, who gave us brief history and stories of various points along the coastline.

Used this service to bring us to Onetahuti to hike some of the Abel Tasman trail - highly recommended, by the way. We walked he short distance to Bark Bay and took the taxi back into town. I showed up the day of and booked a taxi for a few hours away. The captain took extra time to make us laugh and bring us around an island to see some baby seals, and was very surgical with his taxi placement on the shore. A little expensive, but then again there's not many ways to get to these spots.

What we did- the absolute abel tasman package

We hop on the water taxi and went all the way up to Totanui, back to Barks bay and hiked to Anchorage.

For $82, though a little steep, we got to experience some scenic locations along the coast of Abel Tasman national park! It was definitely scenic though not breath taking, we even got a chance to catch a glimpse of a few seals! It's a fairly easy hike but i would recommend preparing slippers as some part of the hike might be wet!

I recommend just the package from marahau to barks bay and hike to anchorage as it would be $10 cheaper. (anyway the beaches look fairly similar after awhile:p)

We booked ahead for our trip and we had excellent service via the website and email. It was easy to find. Our trip out was with a competent, interesting Skipper who gave lots of info about the areas we were passing through.

We jumped off and started our walk. It was v beautiful and quite quiet. We had plenty of time - we are not particularly fit but walked a little quicker than the DoC signs suggested. There's a lot of up and down.

The weather got a little colder and when a boat pulled in to the pick up area, we asked if we could go back in a little earlier and they were v flexible. We stopped to see the seals on the way back and again, the Skipper was professional and informative.

Everything about this company was great, from being picked up, to be helped with heavy bags. It was an added bonus to be given a tour guide about the area, it felt like there was no hurry and we could stop and see the seals. When we needed to change bookings there was no problem. great service, happy friendly staff. Thank you
