There is not many choice to come here (Stewart island) 77 nzd for one way and 135 nzd for round trip , you can amend your booking date as well.there is toilet and a small shop on ferry. Boat ride a bit dizzy ...luckily only 1 hour drive . bring plastic bags (just in case)

We had a very calm crossing from Bluff Harbour to Oban on Stewrat Island and to Ulva Island oth ways. The ferry is very comfortable & has food & drinks available, The trip was quite quick.

Our captain narrated the interesting bits of the crossing and we even detoured a bit to watch an oyster ship being up its trawler full of oysters. Somewhat choppy water but the ferry was right on time.

It was very rough, the captain was an excellent seaman and stemmed the swell with aplomb. Do suggest taking anti seasick pill before hand!

This trip is short but very informative of the wildlife on Stewart Island and especially Ulva Island with a nature walk. The whole experience was well done and well led.

Thank Tom D
