Perfect weather, we were on the top deck for great views . Skipper and assistant were friendly and appeared knowledgeable about the Abel Tasman, bring snacks if you require. We were told if we felt sea sick we could jump off at a bay and be picked up on the way back. Luckily for us the seas were calm and good to know there were options. Abel Tasman is stunning

Crew on board was very nice and friendly. The staff at the ticket area needs training on customer service. The lady there was not fit for job. The boat has snacks on sale and a toilet which is good. The service is more of a taxi type bringing people to different beaches. It gave us good exposure to the region from a boat, but it did get repetitive to dock at each beach (twice almost).
