With 13 adults, 3 kids. organising a day could be a challenge, but eith a trip up the park everyone was happy and occupied. Commentary was light, informative and professional and the licenced onboard caffateria nonflustered by the bulk demands.
Everyone left saying it was the highlight of their visit to the tasman

We used a package with Sea Shuttle but with hindsight I think Wilsons offered a better deal. We were over 2 hours on a boat with no refreshment although we were advised there would be drinks available. I believe the Wilson boats are of a better standard. That said, a trip along the coastline is strongly recommended. However, a walk along the coastal path is even more strongly recommended, the views from the cliff tops with the lagoons below are simply stunning. The scenery changes from tropical rain forest to golden sandy beaches to crystal clear water shimmering in the sunshine.

This is a great way to experience the Abel Tasman park and its beaches. The round trip to the end of the line lets you see all the coastal sights in a comfortable setting. The captain provided a running commentary of the sights with some history thrown in. Great to get out on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and just dig your toes in the sand for a few minutes.

they give you a lot of options of when to get on and off, big boat, clean, even the toilet. interesting sights are explained, all in all we felt very well taken care of. We noticed though on the way back we were a little early at the last stop to pick up people and since nobody was there we left...hmm we were told to be there 10 min early but this was 15 to 20 min early - what if somebody would have just made it...but then maybe nobody was scheduled? anyway friendly service, everything very well organized, looking forward to our next trip there...

Excellent service, informative and entertaining commentary, helpful staff. We took the Discovery tour and got dropped off for a 3.5 hour walk along the coastal trail before meeting the boat again for the trip back to Kaiteriteri. The scenery is spectacular and the mix of boat trip and walk was the best way to really see the area. Remember to wear walking shoes or trainers, take waterproofs and sunscreen, plenty of water and lunch! Most of the trail is in the shade of the rainforest so be prepared to wear layers to take on and off (we did it on a hot day but needed light fleeces too).
