Golden sand beaches, crystal clear water and marine wildlife

Anchorage Bay in early morning light, Abel Tasman National Park


Spend the day photographing the world famous Abel Tasman National Park on your own privately chartered boat. The coastline of the Abel Tasman is made up of small bays with stunning beaches and rock formations that provide wonderful photography subjects. As well as exploring the beautiful coastline we will also call into some of the most photogenic points in the Abel Tasman and follow short walking tracks to stunning viewpoints. There will be plenty of opportunities to see wildlife with options to visit a bird sanctuary island and a marine reserve. An added bonus with this trip is that our experienced skipper is also a marine biologist and has a wealth of knowledge about the Abel Tasman that enhances the experience of this trip. 

      We will be getting on and off the boat to access some locations so there is a good chance you will get wet feet. Please wear shorts or long                 pants that you can roll up, we do not recommend jeans because they tend to stay wet and may impact your comfort. Outdoor clothing                   and sturdy shoes are essential for this trip. Bring an extra layer of warm clothes and be prepared for the sun as well. We have limited                     spare clothes and walking poles available.

New Zealand's inaccessible hinterland

The landscape photographer will find endless subjects here - and patience will be rewarded with great shots that will remind you forever of this very special trip.
