The Great Day Out

Full Day Cruise & Walk

Price from £38 per person

Please report for check-in at Wilsons Abel Tasman's ticket office, corner of Riwaka-Kaiteriteri Road and Inlet Road, Kaiteriteri (located in the main car park across the road from Kaiteriteri Beach). Join your crew and board your Wilsons Abel Tasman vessel, Abel Tasman Voyager, to commence The Great Day Out tour. The Abel Tasman Voyager is a two deck catamaran; one lower covered deck and one open viewing deck. From Kaiteriteri, cruise past the golden coves, sculpted granite headlands and forested islands of the Astrolabe Roadstead. After a short stop at Anchorage Beach and Torrent Bay, pause to view the antics of the seal colony in Tonga Island Marine Reserve. Continue along the remote northern beaches where Nikau Palms and native Rate feature in the rainforest fringing the long golden beaches. Turn around at Totaranui and return to historic Tonga Beach with its abandoned granite quarry site. Enjoy a 2 – 2.5 hour (5 kilometre / 3 mile) walk over a forested saddle and around spectacular Bark Bay estuary with its cascading waterfalls. Re-join the Vista Cruise at 3.00pm or 4.45pm at sheltered Medlands Beach and return to Kaiteriteri.
