Slice of Paradise

Catch a morning water taxi into the Park along the length of the incredible Abel Tasman coastline right up to Totaranui and then back to either Onetahuti or Bark Bay. Find your slice of paradise when you walk the most scenic section of the Coastal Track enjoying the Abel Tasman’s incredible beaches soaking up the elevated views of picture-perfect bays before returning on an afternoon water taxi.

There are two walking options for this trip depending on how much of the Coastal Track you would like to walk, and which section of the Track you wish to explore.

Trip Options:

  • Option 1 – the shorter walk option. We drop you at Onetahuti and you walk through to Bark Bay (2 hours) to meet your return water taxi.
  • Option 2 – the longer walk option. We drop you at Bark Bay and you walk through to Anchorage (3-4 hours) to meet your return water taxi.

We run a daily shuttle bus to Marahau from Nelson and Motueka. If you don’t have your own transport please give us a call on 0800 278 282 to add bus transfers to your booking.
