Abel Tasman Seals & Sand (Cruise & Walk)

Cruise the magnificent Abel Tasman coastline north to the golden expanse of Onetahuti.  View the fascinating Tonga Island Seal Colony on the way.  Land at picturewque Tonga Beach where an abandoned granite quarry site still holds evidence of this failed venture.  Enjoy a 2 hr 15 min (5 kms / 3 miles) walk over a forested saddle and around the golden sands of Bary Bay Estuary with its cascading waterfalls through lush native forest.  Continue to Medlands Beach, Bark Bay, for your return cruise to Kaiteriteri where your connecting coach awaits to transfer you to Motueka or Nelson.
