Introduction

View the Abel Tasman Coast Track tide timetables. Tide timetables are for your safety.

Note: There are some low tide crossings along the Abel Tasman Coast Track.

Do not cross when it's not low tide as it's dangerous.

Where you need to do tide crossings

Torrent Bay Estuary

  • This can be crossed 2 hours on either side of low tide, under normal conditions.
  • There is an all tide track around the estuary. This gives access to Cleopatra’s Pool.

Awaroa Inlet

  • You can cross Awaroa Inlet within 1 hour 30 minutes before and 2 hours after low tide. Although this can be affected by natural influences such as tide heights, storm surges, and heavy rainfall.
  • Only cross the inlet in daylight when it's safe.
  • Allow 25 minutes to cross.
  • No alternative track around the estuary.

Goat Bay

  • There is a section of the access to the beach that is cut at large tides.
  • Wait until the tide recedes before continuing.
