Combine our best one day adventure with staying in the Abel Tasman park for a night!
Day one join us for the Remote Coast Tour. This is a stunning day trip that covers the entire marine reserve from start to finish. Starting at Awaroa courtesy of our water taxi transfer, allows us to visit Shag Harbour*, a hidden inlet like nowhere else in the Abel Tasman. We then paddle south, focusing on the Tonga Island Marine Reserve and its playful inhabitants - the NZ fur seal, Kekeno. After a great picnic lunch on one of the beautiful beaches, we'll visit the Tonga Arches, exploring south along the carved granite coastline through to the tranquil lagoons and golden sand of the 'heart of the park' and our final destination, Bark Bay.
Spend the night in the park at Bark Bay and walk the coastal track back to Anchorage on day two. We have allowed plenty of time for exploring, and there is so much to explore between Bark Bay and Anchorage. From Bark Bay walk up through the lush coastal forest before crossing the 47 m suspension bridge across Falls River. Sidle around two valleys before walking down to Torrent Bay. From here you have two options to take the high tide route and explore Cleopatra's Pool or spend the afternoon taking in the surrounds of Anchorage. The estuary can be crossed within two hours either side of low tide, or an all-tide track leads around to Anchorage. Catch the water taxi back late afternoon from Anchorage to Marahau.
