Water Taxi – One Way Fare

From $43

Water taxis provide quick and convenient access to the six major bays along the spectacular Abel Tasman coastline. A trip in one of the smaller water taxis, past the succession of wide sweeping bays, is a quintessentially Kiwi experience. Built specifically for the Abel Tasman coastline and unique tidal conditions, water taxis get you access to the Park’s secret spots, spectacular marine life and even into bush-fringed tidal inlets. Book a one way fare and plan your own day out in the Park!


For group bookings requiring transport between Nelson, Motueka and Marahau please give us a call on 0800 80 80 18 to add bus transfers to your booking.
