Stewart Island Experience offers regular ferry services across Foveaux Strait to Stewart Island on board our express catamarans. During the one-hour crossing between Bluff and Oban keep a lookout for wildlife, especially seabirds, as you enjoy our complimentary tea and coffee. Watching mollymawks (albatross) soaring behind the ferry is a fantastic sight.

Comprehensive commentaries from our friendly staff 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.

Please note:

  • Our catamarans are wheelchair accessible.
  • Our luggage limit is two carry-on bags per person. If you require additional baggage, please contact us and make arrangements prior to your journey.
