We booked the water taxi from Awaroa to Totaranui, once underway we were told we were ahead of schedule so we could go back, away from Totaranui, to see a pod of dolphins. Got close enough to see them playing and surfing in the boats wake. Excellent service

Aqua Taxi are based in Marahau, making them a convenient outfit for transporting people and bags to and from the Abel Tasman National Park. We used them to shuttle our bags between overnight stops on the trail, which they're happy to do provided there is at some point a human transfer too. They explained what was happening with the bags... More

Picked up in Nelson from our Motel, and delivered back there on the evening of day 4. Comprehensive route instructions for self guided walking, with packed lunches provided, and overnight bags delivered for us.. we just carried what we needed for each day's walk.

I did a kayak and walk trip with Abel Tasman Kayaks and they use the Aqua Taxi to transport people back to Marahau once they are done and also to pick up the boats. The drivers were all really friendly and helpful, can't believe how easy they seemed to find it to toss around those heavy kayaks! Driving right up... More

We took the Aqua Taxi to prevent us from having to do an out and back hike in Abel Tasman. The boat ride was great and they even swung by Split Rock and some seal colonies. They gave a little information about the area as well during the trip. You will get a bit wet when you hop off, but... More

We took the boat up the coast to Medlands Beach and walked to Anchorage Bay, and then took the boat back down to Kaiteriteri. The boat ride was one hour up the coast with it making two stops on the way. The ride back was only about 30 minutes with no stops. The walk was 4 hours 15 minutes, making... More

For three days we used this ferry to go to various points along the Abel Tasman Coast Track. They were the only ferry that was able to land at the shallow Awaroa beach. The drivers were also excellent tour guides, stopping so we could take photos of seals and other scenic features of the coast, such as Split Apple Rock.... More
