Dry feet, happy feet!

A locally owned water taxi company with purpose built, catamarans that have walk on/off ramp access to keep those hiking feet dry, where possible.

Departs up to 4 times daily from Kaiteriteri Beach and Nelson City once daily at 8.00am from 01 December to 31 March.

The experienced skippers, informative and fun commentary, along with our comfortable vessels and many walk/cruise options, will be the highlight of your visit to the Abel Tasman National Park. All our vessels have ramps for easy entry and exit to the cabin area and toilets onboard for your comfort.

Took the shuttle in partnership with Kaiteriteri Kayaks to spend a day on the water. The water taxi was kind enough to detour on the way back in order for us to see Split Apple Rock.

Laid back style, but efficient. Friendly and knowledgeable staff/crew. Loved the informality of only needing my first name!! Smashing guided tour from Kaiteriteri to Awaroa for the ambient experience. Well worth the money.

Great service, easy to contact and find, very informative upon arrival. Was dropped off at Bark Bay by friendly boat driver, even brought us out of the way to show us Split Apple Rock, really sweet!

Great sightseeing on the boat in the National Park; then a really nice walk of about three hours, then picked up 15 further, all very well organised, with pickup in the morning from the i-Site.

Ein toller Ausflug trotzdem es zeitweise geregnet hat - wir haben viele Robben und auch Delphine gesehen. Die Crew hat sich wunderbar gekümmert.

Beautiful trip along the National Park. Good commentary from the captain. Although we were late he went slow so that the dolphins could join us and swim near the boat.

Provided more than just transfers with showing us seals and Split Apple Rock. Seemed expensive at $65 to $70, but great staff, with great knowledge.

Good punctual service. Stops at all major bays. Gives some nice explanation along the way and some great jokes. Would definitely recommend this water shuttle.
