The Barn Cabins & Camp

Aqua Taxi

The best boat transport around the Abel Tasman, departing from the very start of the Abel Tasman, Marahau.



Experience the Beauty of the Abel Tasman from the comfort of the purpose-built, quiet and eco-friendly Aqua Taxis. They provide the best transport around the Abel Tasman. We always recommend getting the first boat out of Marahau to where ever you are going, and walking back out. That way you don’t have to worry about missing the boat at the end of the afternoon!

The trips will make a quick detour to Split Apple Rock before heading off into The Park. On the way up, you will stop by Adele Island in the Astrolabe to find a few seals. They are usually sun bathing on the North side after a bit of fishing! From here you are just 10min away from Anchorage.

All Aqua Taxi trips out of Marahau will be booked with free transport from The Barn main car park.
