Can someone help me out with a 'plan' for a day trip to Stewart Island- we were going to knock a visit to the Island out of the trip to NZ , but we are sold on going now having read about it.
Can you give me a suggested company to use for 'guided tour half day ' for Ulva ( think we want / need to know what we are looking at and for!) and a company for a tour round the island as well.
Will get the early ferry over ( arrive 9am I think ) and the late one (5pm) back. I can't quite 'gel' this idea into a day plan as I keep getting' conflict is bookings' flashing up when I try to book it all on one web site. Or am I trying to do too much in one day?
You could also try "Beaks and feathers". For the the Ulva Island trip, she was a lovely guide and we saw really interesting birds and learned a lot about the flora on the island also. It was a small group size (4 of us) as well which was nice.
We have used Rakiura Charters and Water taxi twice and they are very accommodating. You can get a booklet from them of the trails and birds on the island. We saw kiwis during the day there. Great place!
