Daily Departure Schedule

Our boats depart from seven beach depots throughout the Abel Tasman National Park. Most visitors depart from our Kaiteriteri Beach base or our Marahau base at the southern end of the park.

  1. Find the colour for your month

    The departure times are colour-coded according to their season - yellow for Summer and blue for Winter. Use the colour wheel to determine the colour that corresponds with the month of the year that you'll be visiting the Abel Tasman.

    Summer season is October to the end of April and Winter is May until the end of September (subject to change depending on demand). Bookings are essential in Winter.

    Tip: Use the Set Seasons menu a the top-left of this page to show only the departure times that are relevant to your journey's season.
