Owner description: Explore Oban village and its surrounding bays on a minibus tour with a local guide. This tour provides an intriguing insight into how Stewart Island’s tiny community survives – and thrives – while living in the heart of the ‘Roaring Forties.” From the entrance of the Rakiura National Park at beautiful Lee Bay, up to Observation Rock for panoramic views of Paterson Inlet and off-shore islands. Ideal for first time visitors to the island.

Took this tour in November 2009.
Had Graheme as our guide who was brilliant from start to finish.
His narration was second to none & really made the tour both interesting & informative. No part of the tour was rushed and he readily answered any & all questions the people on the tour threw at him.
The tour is suitable for all ages & encourages people to chat to each other making it a very friendly & relaxing tour.
Graheme tried to give us a long as possible in each area but if you enjoying yourself, it never seems long enough.
Would definately recommend this tour to anyone who wants a brief introduction to Stewart Island but is short on time.
