Avoid the crowds—visit stunning Abel Tasman National Park from Golden Bay.

Fly from Wellington to Takaka and catch our shuttle to Wainui Bay at the northern entrance to Abel Tasman.

Why not leave the park from the north as well—there are plenty of ways to avoid retracing your steps:

Booking is easy...

Our scheduled services between Wellington and Wainui Bay can be booked online to save phone booking fees.

For drop-offs to water taxis or kayaks or to book a flight from Takaka to Awaroa, please phone or email us.

Please note, passengers travelling alone are charged the equivalent of 2 fares if first to book on our Wainui shuttle services.

Park Information

The 51km Abel Tasman Coastal Track is New Zealand's easiest Great Walk. It extends from Wainui Bay, 24 km from Takaka to Marahau, 62 km from Nelson.

The coastal track crosses estuaries, two of which are only passable near low tide. Please consult tide timetables when planning your trip.

Hut spaces and campsites need to be booked prior to departure. Refer to the Department of Conservation for track and booking information.

Camping fuels are as hazardous substances and cannot be carried on our aircraft. We can provide fuel at cost-price when you arrive in Takaka by prior arrangement.
