Your trip includes an Environmental Access Fee which goes directly towards preserving the Abel Tasman National Park.
A portion of your ticket price goes directly towards preserving the unique environment you will enjoy on your trip in the Abel Tasman. This includes the compulsory concession fees paid to the Department of Conversation as well as voluntary contributions to local organisations and projects to improve the environment, ecology and access to the National Park.
Depending on your chosen trip the Environmental Access Fee (EAF) is between $10-$15 per person. The EAF is made up of the following components:
- Foreshore crossing levies:
a. Compulsory levy paid to the Department of Conservation (DOC) for each person crossing the foreshore within the Abel Tasman National Park
b. Compulsory levy paid to the Mārahau Environmental Trust for each person crossing the Mārahau foreshore.
- Guiding Fees: Compulsory levy paid to the Department of Conservation for every guided canyoning trip in the Abel Tasman National Park.
- Abel Tasman Birdsong Trust Contribution: Our voluntary contribution to the local environmental trust to help bring back the birdsong and many other initiatives
- Climate Positive Certified Credits: We offset 120% of our carbon footprint through the purchase of carbon credits to deliver climate resilience, waterway protection, erosion control, biodiversity, conservation and community economic development.
- Administration costs: Expenses incurred by our business in the management and administration of the EAF.
