Although we were getting off at Anchorage Bay we were taken round to see Split Apple Rock before going to Adele Island to see the fur seals lying in the sun. A nice little bonus to the already beautiful boat ride round the golden coast!

We were lucky to use this company to be dropped off down to Anchorage from Marahau. The reason for this is that they were friendly, timely and professional, another company had forgotten us in the morning. Not only that but on the way they went...More

These guys provide a great service with excellent insights and information while we were on the taxis. Needless to say the sites are absolutely amazing! Best way to get to all the tracks throughout the Park too.

This daytour brings you up to several amazing bays and drops you off at Bark Bay (option 2) where you can start the walk to Anchorage Hutt. Definitely worth the money to have differents views on Abel Tasman National Park. During wintertime it's not crowded...More

We booked at 5pm the night before in their extreme high season and couldn't get on a 9am boat but could get on the 10.30am. So if you are flexible with your times you could leave it so you have a better idea of the weather.
