Know More about this tour

We will pick you up in Nelson at 7.15am at the information centre or at 8.20am in Motueka at the information centre unless otherwise stated in your booking. 
If you need another pick up, please advise with your booking.

We will drive you along the coastline to Kaiteriteri. On our drive to Kaiteriteri you will cross our Motueka river and see apple and kiwi orchards and hop fields. 

In Kaiteriteri you will meet your personal guide for the day and together you will start your boat cruise into the middle of the Abel Tasman National Park. We will board our cruise ship for a 9am departure. Choose your seat on the cruise boat inside or outside before we cruise from Kaiteriteri Beach to Medland along the coastline of the Abel Tasman Park ( 1 h ). View world famous Splitt Apple Rock, fur seals and many of the golden beaches of the park. 

Once we arrive at Medland beach, we will then take our time and explore this famous section of the Abel Tasman Park, exploring side trails, enjoying views and learning about flora and fauna and the history of the park. 

We will be picked up at 11.30pm by our cruise boat and will be back in Kaiteriteri at 12pm, where we start our afternoon bus drive. The drive to Mapua along the coastline is very picturesque. We will arrive in Mapua after about 40 minutes. In Mapua there is plenty of time to enjoy it's own unique wharf and estuary setting and plenty of village shops, who offer art studios, local produce, gourmet cafes, a local boutique brewery and restaurants. At the wine bar you can taste and buy wines of most wineries in our area and we are booked in to do a tasting of local wine from Rimu Grove Winery. 

On our way back to Nelson we drive into the Moutere Hills with scenic views of rivers and mountains and rolling hillside. The fertile countryside around here is amongst the most productive in New Zealand. Dotted with vineyards, fruit orchards, berry fields, hop crops and olive groves. We will find interesting traces of the first setters on our way. 

 You will arrive back in Nelson at about 4.30pm and in Motueka at about 5.15pm.
