Abel Tasman National Park is New Zealand’s most popular, and a cruise with Abel Tasman Sea Shuttle is the best way to see it if you don’t have enough time to walk or kayak the entire park.

Departing from the stunning beach at Totaranui on the north end of the park, just a 45 minute scenic drive from Ratanui Lodge, your skipper will take you south through the Park, stopping for seal viewing and points of interest.

You have two options for your day out in the Park:
