With extensive predator control being carried out in the three national parks in the Abel Tasman and Nelson regions bird life is returning. Listen to bell birds and tui or if you're lucky see some kaka. Or along the shores of the Abel Tasman National Park see the shags (cormorants), seabirds and maybe some little blue penguins. Or book a multi day trip and go further afield to see migratory sea birds.
Enjoy our best Abel Tasman day trip. A day cruise along the Abel Tasman National Park's scenic coastline, optional swim, trail walking and sea kayaking. Lunch included. Toilet aboard.
