Tide timetables are for your safety.

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

Torrent Bay Estuary

  • This can be crossed 2 hours either side of low tide, under normal conditions.
  • Allow 25 minutes to cross.
  • There is a high tide track around the estuary (note this gives access to Cleopatra’s Pool)

Awaroa Inlet

  • Walkers can cross Awaroa Inlet within 1 hour 30 minutes before and 2 hours after low tide, under normal conditions although this can be affected by natural influences such as tide heights, storm surges and heavy rainfall.
  • It is only safe to cross the inlet in daylight.
  • Allow 25 minutes to cross.
  • There is no alternative track around the estuary.

Goat Bay

  • There is a section of the access to the beach that is cut at large tides.
