Hunting & Fishing

Rakiura Stewart Island offers some unique fishing and hunting opportunities. On the island you can fish for cod, crayfish and paua. Being home to the only readily accessible herd of Virginian White-tail deer in the Southern Hemisphere makes Stewart Island a popular destination for deer hunters.
Permits are required for all hunting and these need to be applied for in advance and fisheries operate under a quota management system with catches strictly controlled.

Let us show you the best fishing charters, spots and tour operators on the island.
