    We stayed one night in a private cabin, as part of a four day walk organised by Abel Tasman Guides. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed, the food excellent and plentiful. Nice to mix with other people we hadn't met before.

    The boat is such a cool place to stay, it’s great being able to swim off it. A really unique experience. There highlight is the food though. The dinner was amazing, then the breakfast the next day topped it off. Would highly recommend.
