Cable Bay

Cable Bay is a thirty minute drive from Peak View and our favourite place in the region. "It's a place full of awe inspiring nature, crystal clear water, exciting adventures and plenty of history!”

Enjoy the Cable Bay Walkway with amazing views over the Tasman Bay, go for a snorkel in the marine reserve, enjoy a small but fine rock beach, launch a kayak or do some rock climbing or diving.

Experience Cable Bay's exciting adventure park, explore the incredible rugged coastline by Kayak, hunt Dragons with a longbow or learn to shoot a gun. Thrill seekers, family adventures, team events - our passionate local tourism operators are here for you and look forward to meeting you soon.

Dragon Hunt Archery Experience

Archery Park is run by Markus, a long time archer with lots of experience and a few medals to show. Markus is a field archer and the Dragon Hunt Archery Experience is like no other archery adventure you may have seen:

The Dragon Hunt: A half day guided adventure tour where you learn to shoot bow and arrow, experience raw New Zealand with a trip to one of the last virgin native forests and stalk Dragons and other lifelike creatures with the longbow. This is one of Nelson’s top rated activities.
