Abel Tasman Scenic Cruise on a week day in September?

Does the Abel Tasman scenic cruise operate during week, eg. Wednesday Sep 10th or Thursday Sep 11th, 2014?

I plan to spend 3 nights based in Nelson and also 3 nights in Queenstown.

Is it better to be in Nelson or Queenstown during weekend?

I would like take Milford Sound day trip from Queenstown provided by Nakedbus.

Is there more frequent bus between Te Anau and Quenstown, as i would like to visit Glowworm Caves on second day....

There are numerous day cruises and they operate all year round, but less frequent trips during the day in off season.

Cruises that depart from Kaiteriteri include

Wilsons http://www.abeltasman.co.nz/

Abel Tasman sea shuttle http://abeltasmanseashuttles.co.nz/

And cruises that depart from Marahau (the southern start and finish of track) include Abel tasman aquataxi

You can find all sorts of options including kayak, walk, cruise.

Nelson is great in the weekend, The Saturday market is well reknown and is definitely worth going to. Lots of local arts, crafts, food, entertainment and atmosphere.

Both Nelson and Queenstown are great during the week and also on weekends.

Yes, you can bus Queenstown to Te Anau - you pass through Te Anau enroute to Milford so I suggest -

1 bus to Te Anau - glowworm caves

2 bus tour to Milford Sound - only 8 hours from Te Anau, 13 hours from Queenstown

3 bus to Queenstown
