Stewart Island Experience - Ferry Services

Stewart Island is perfect for a day excursion, or an extended stay. Cross Foveaux Strait on board our express passenger catamarans.  During the one-hour crossing between Bluff and Oban keep a lookout for wildlife, especially seabirds.  Watching mollymawks (albatross) soaring behind the ferry is a fantastic sight. 

Comprehensive commentaries provide information on the interesting landmarks commonly seen, including Dog Island Lighthouse, Ruapuke Island, the Titi Islands and Mt Anglem - Stewart Island’s highest point.
