Overview

Explore Stewart Island from the sea. See concealed inlets and untouched beaches whilst enjoying a relaxed cruise of stunning Paterson Inlet.  Along the way you will find out about early Maori history and European settlement including whaling.  Your skipper and nature guide will give full commentary during the cruise and are glad to answer any questions.

Then go ashore with a specialist nature guide for a 45-minute guided walk at Ulva Island, a well-known wildlife sanctuary. See rare plants and rich birdlife, including the curious weka, which are frequently observed on the beach.

For the rest of the cruise around Paterson Inlet, relax aboard our modern catamaran and enjoy the coastal scenery before returning back to the jetty. Cruises depart from the Stewart Island Visitor Terminal.
