I love NZ and the ATNP. Have travelled here 10X since 2002. People, natural wilderness, experiences have always been spectacular. Yesterday, I walked from Marahau to Te Pukatea / Anchorage with my host scheduling my return on an Aqua Taxi. Ride arrived on time, full boat. One seat under the protective canopy still left so I took that seat. Boat driver (elderly man) told me to move up front where a DOC member kindly offered her seat. When everyone was aboard, driver came up front and told me to return to the back so the DOC member could keep her original seat. Problem being my original seat was now taken by someone not scheduled on this trip. I had to sit in the very back most likely getting wet during the trip. Fortunately, the wind was calm and I got through without problem. After boat ride back to Marahau, driver asked if we got wet and I replied "Not at all." When I disembarked from the boat I thanked him and he did not even have the decency to say anything kind. He spoke nicely to all the other passengers aboard when they departed. The rudeness and lack of professional behavior by this driver will definitely come back on him. I will just avoid using Aqua Taxi on any of my visits to ATNP.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 79 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
Pickup at the campground, very friendly staff, especially our skipper even had a life jacket for baby. Skipper showed us Split Apple Rock and seals and gave us much information and insight pointers.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Good trip to Abel Tasman, but so expensive, it is only a transfer to the beach.
Efficient and on time.
Great way to get back to Marahau after hiking/kayaking the Abel Tasman coast. Friendly, good service. Also get a nice view of the coast on the way.
They are really cool but could have stopped one or two times more.
Well organised pickup service from the campsite, great sightseeing, seals, nice walk from Anchorage to Marahau, clean area. BUT I think very expensive at $25 for 35 minutes on a boat.
Well organised, friendly staff.
