We thought we would be getting off at each of the stops to spend some time there. It turns out this is really just a shuttle service that goes from pt A to pt B, etc. The good news its you can get off at once stop, hike to a different stop, and then catch a ride back to your starting point.

Lovely boat and it was a lovely day! It is a little longer than stated, around 4 hours including check-in time but the bays were beautiful! If anything, I would recommend to go for the option to do a walk too as you get mighty jealous of the golden beaches!

Very nice way to see the beautiful coast line of the Abel Tasman NP. Commentary along the way too which was nice. We were able to see seals and took us close to split apple rock . My only complaint is that it was over crowded so much on the return journey that it was uncomfortable and couldn’t really see much .
