We were thoroughly impressed with these guys! We booked to be dropped off and presumed it was going to be a straight forward ride but they crew were really knowledgeable which really added to the experience! They gave us a tour of split apple rock and shared loads about the local wildlife and area. They were efficient and really friendly - would recommend!

Starting from Marahau, the aqua taxi brings you to several points along the Abel Tasman Coast Track. Stopping at the divided apple rock and a seal colony, the ride itself is a fantastic activity. Price ($35 to Torrent Bay) is okay. Boats at cruising at 50kmh.

Fun and efficient. They double as tourist guides and allow you to walk any small or big portion of the Abel Tasman area. Taxis are on time. They make sure you know where you are going when they drop you off. Safe also.
