Abel Tasman Coastal Tours

Beauty Beyond Compare

Explore the wonders of the Abel Tasman on board the Galileo. The Abel Tasman National Park is New Zealand's smallest national park, but by far the most beautiful, renowned for its golden beaches, sculptured granite cliffs, and its world-famous coast track. The coastline has been shaped over millions of years revealing stunning scenery that you can experience with Galileo Charters and can get up close to discover New Zealand's scenic beauty. With Galileo Charters you can kayak, paddleboard, swim, wander the beaches, or explore scenic bush walks with stunning views around the Abel Tasman National Park.

An Unforgettable Sightseeing Experience

The park is accessable by both water and the coastal track winding its way through the hills and valleys. With so many highlights along the way, a charter throughout the Abel Tasman is an unforgettable sightseeing experience. So come and join us as we follow along the picturesque granite headlands to discover golden beaches and the magnificent lagoons that give the Abel Tasman its astounding reputation, as well as the Tonga Island Marine Reserve being one of the most incredible attractions in the Abel Tasman.

Incredible Diving Experiences

We also offer diving within the National Park's Marine Reserve, where you can explore a whole different world from beneath the surface that is just as beautiful as the coastline above. Our charter boat can also be used as a water taxi to the Abel Tasman directly from Port Nelson, to drop you off at a beautiful selection of golden beaches with luxury accommodation that is fully-catered for track walkers.
