About Nelson

Situated on New Zealand's South Island near the Tasman Bay, Nelson offers an array of sights and activities for cruisers to explore. Nelson benefits from its truly breathtaking beauty, which is on full display at Abel Tasman National Park where visitors can spend time relaxing on the beach, see an ancient Maori pa site, go on kayaking and sailing excursions or even experience a helicopter tour.

In town, visitors can get a taste for the rich local arts culture by visiting any number of galleries and museums or check out the local market or one of the many quality seafood restaurants. Wine lovers should consider taking an excursion to one of the local vineyards, many of which are small, family-owned businesses making craft wines.

Another lovely coastal city. We wish it hadn't been so windy as we would have loved to have rented bicycles and ridden to the beautiful beach we could see from the ship.... Read More
