Very interesting unhurried walk for 3 hours on Ulva Island. Ange is so friendly and knowledgeable we saw many birds on our morning tour including Yellow Heads, Tuis, Wekas, Stewart Island Robins and a kiwi which was amazing. Great tour.

Fantastic guide, friendly and informative. Small groups which made the experience more enjoyable as you could get closer to the wildlife. Would definitely recommend Ulva island and Beaks and Feathers!!
