Abel Tasman National Park Seals, Bridges & Walk
Take a boat to a beautiful beach, view seals, walk through the forest and enjoy the views from the Falls River Bridge on the way.
*Summer Season Only, 15th October to 30th April.
You will get wet on this trip! Due to the shallow and tidal nature of Torrent Bay it is not always possible for our boats to reach the beach so a short walk through the water is often necessary.
This tour departs from Kaiteriteri for Torrent Bay where you then walk through the forested tracks and across the famous falls river to Medlands Bay (2.5 hours).
You’ll enjoy the views from Falls River swing-bridge and you may even see kayakers and seals in the river far below you.
There’s also the option of a short but steep side track to visit Sandfly Bay before returning to the main track and onto Medlands Bay, both great spots with their turquoise waters and golden sands. If you have time, it is also worth continuing for a few minutes beyond Medlands to explore Bark Bay, but remember, you must return to Medlands for your pick up!
Pick up: Medlands Bay
– 3:15pm – 4:30*
For the more enthusiastic walker:
