NEW Nelson to Kaiteriteri ferry Service will begin before Christmas !
After just 25 weeks of construction, Abel Tasman Sea Shuttle's new innovative $1.2 million vessel "The Crusader", is nearing completion. The 150-seater catamaran will ferry people from Nelson at the Top of the South Island to Kaiteriteri at the beginning of the Abel Tasman National Park and back once a day and for the rest of the day will be the flagship of the Kaiteriteri to Totaranui and return run during the rest of the day!
Only in operation during the height of the tourist season.

Building the boat has been a seven day affair since it started. During the time of being built only one weekend has been taken off.
