Very calm on the way over mad for a very smooth trip. The wind had picked up a little in the afternoon but still pretty good. Professional and hospitable crew members.

The tour was by van as there were only four of us. Tour took just on 90 minutes and was a great way to see parts of the island we would not have seen otherwise, and also to get an insight into island life and the history of the area. Our tour host Ollie was a good guide and knowledgeable about the history. The stop at Lee Bay was interesting to see and have a quick walk about. The only down side was there was no stop at the salmon place, given it's not really in walking distance, and to stop there for five minutes would have added great value to the tour.

I am from Invercargill and ashamed to admit this is the first visit to Stewart Island in 20 plus years..I wanted to learn as much as possible so asked at The Red shed what they would advise..I was given the Kiwi Night tour and the next day Ulva Island.. both at great prices and tied in with making sure I got back in time for ferry home.. wow wow wow .Oli and Robyn were amazing guides.Its obvious Oli is very passionate about the wildlife as well as being professional and courteous. These two made a great trip amazing ..Drew was our nature guide to Ulva .we were given a look at the Salmon and mussel farms as well as given some history on the island's. Once again amazing views but was made the trip special was the commentary from our guide and the customer service of all the staff including Ryan while driving...Real Journeys you have some amazing staff..
