Overnight In The Abel Tasman

Why Not Spend A Night (Or Two) In The Abel Tasman?

Romantic evening walks, glow worms, spectacular stars...

Our overnight option lets you spend a night in the Abel Tasman.

Come and spend an evening on board, get a taste of all the Abel Tasman has to offer from the comfort of an Abel Tasman Charters' boat. You can just stay on board and relax or take one of the kayaks for a paddle. Go for a swim, snorkel over the marine reserve or be dropped off for an evening bush walk when tracks are quieter.

Abel Tasman Overnight

Join us for a scenic cruise and sleep over in the aptly named Anchorage Bay in the Abel Tasman National Park.

Torea is available for exclusive overnight charters to Anchorage Bay. This is a fun charter and combines a cruise with the possibility of sea kayaking or walking in the Abel Tasman before dining on the back deck.

Later, after dark, maybe a romantic walk along the beach to see the glow-worm cave. Or just soak up the friendly Anchorage atmosphere and swap stories over a bottle of the local vintage.

After a continental breakfast you may cruise back to Stephen's Bay (by 8.30am), or have a short walk along the forest track or beach before joining our day trip ($285pp extra).

Alternatively, talk to us about the many hiking, boating and flying options we offer.

Includes scenic cruise to Anchorage Bay, quality bedding, dinner & breakfast.

Please mention any dietary requirements at the time of booking.

Departs Stephens Bay after 5.30pm, returns 8.30am next day.

Cost: $1450.00 for 2 passengers. $80 per extra person up to 4 passengers max.

Sleeping quarters - 2 double-sized cabins with separate bathrooms and 1 king single.

Depart Stephens Bay for Abel Tasman Charters

Departure Location

Our day trips depart from Stephens Bay. If you get to Kaiteriteri Beach, you've gone too far.

From Nelson and Motueka: Head south out of Nelson on SH6 then take SH60 to Motueka. 6km north of Motueka turn right off SH60 towards Kaiteriteri.

Stephens Bay Road is the next right - 3.8km from the turnoff. Easy sign to miss - it is blue and just states 'Stephens Bay Road No Exit'.

Come down to the beach and the skipper will come in and pick you up off the beach.

Any problems please call 0800 223522, and we will guide you in.

Multi Day Charters

There's so much to see & do around the Abel Tasman, why not charter the boat for more than one day?

We offer multiday charters year round aboard our comfortable catamaran Torea. Use the boat as your floating holiday home to really explore the quiet nooks & crannies of the Abel Tasman wilderness - or walk the entire Abel Tasman Coastal Track with the luxury of warm showers & soft beds at the end of your day.

The park is in many ways especially beautiful through April to September when the beaches and bays empty of travellers and the wildlife fills the bay. On any given day you may see blue penguins, schools of kahawai, seals, dolphins, spoonbills, terns, oystercatchers, cormorant and flocks of fluttering shearwaters.

The Nelson region has often stunningly beautiful winter days with mirror calm water and clear blue skies.

The boat is well designed for winter comfort with central heating, 6 comfortable berths (2 doubles, 1 single) with innerspring mattresses and quality linen provided.

A well designed, fully equipped galley with gas and electric cooking including full sized fridge and freezer.

The boat runs on a 230 volt system ensuring all digital devices can be recharged and has a Bluetooth capable stereo.

Torea has two bathrooms which include toilet and shower in each.

2 days/1 night  $5950 (1 - 4 people)
2 days/2nights $6950.00 (1 - 4 people)
3 days/2 nights $8950 (1 - 4 people)
Delicious meals and beverages included.

Thanks Again

"I could not recommend the trip highly enough. It was just a great way to see and walk lots of the park without having to walk/camp the entire way."
A truly amazing experience.

Best, Charlie Fry
