New Zealand Tour, 24th September 2011. Able Tasman Park with Able Tasaman Sea Shuttle.

One of the reasons we had previously tackled Takaka Hill twice in one day was that we wanted to spend a full day walking in the Able Tasman National Park. By staying overnight in Kaiteriteri we were able to book the Sea Shuttle at the booth located on the beach and get the 09.15 boat into the park. The small boat was packed, the crew were great, very attentive to the passengers and friendly and informative about the park. We were then dropped off at the top of the park at Totaranui and walked back to Bark Bay. The walking was easy, on well marked tracks. This was a perfect day out, very relaxing and I can see the attraction of doing the 3 day walk of the whole park.

We Choose Able Tasman SeaShuttle, and had a GREAT Day out!
Able Tasman Beaches.
We made our way back to Nelson and booked in at a Motel , Beaches. As it was the England v Roumania Match as well as the New Zealand v France showdown we needed to be in a Bar to watch the matches! We found a great one, Smugglers Bar in Nelson. The food was great, with portion sizes to feed an army never mind one, big TVs to watch the games and very stressed out All Blacks ready to take on France in the Pool games.
