Seal & Beach Walk

The small town of Kaiteriteri is the main gateway to the beautiful Abel Tasman National Park and the departure point for the excursion into the park. The first part of the excursion starts with a cruise up the coastline, passing golden beaches and secluded bays, to Onetahuti (Tonga Bay), where you visit Tonga Island, which is home to the largest seal colony in the park and has many species of seabird and sometimes penguins.

You then disembark onto the beach and walk to Bark Bay through native bush, which will take one hour and 30 minutes. You meet up with the boat at Bark bay, which will cruise back down the coast to Kaiteriteri.
