We were fortunate to have booked both the Stewart Island tour and the Ulva Island tour as a package deal in the Winter months. What an amazing adventure 🥰
To make it even more special we decided to grab some e-bikes before our Ulva Island experience, would you believe we rode and found the gorgeous wee sod cottage of Lewis Acker. Got to explore inside.. how wonderful an experience.
Who was to know we'd also get to see it on the ferry ride over to Ulva Island 🤗 How lucky were we 👍👍👍

It sounds like the perfect winter getaway and you managed to get out and really explore the island and what it has to offer. Thank you for taking the time to right a review.

Nicky, our guide, had an excellent local knowledge and gave an entertaining perspective of Stewart Island. We learned a lot and saw the beautiful beaches close to Oban. A great 1 hour tour. Bev & Bryan

Bevan was our guide and had a fantastic knowledge of Stewart Island and surrounds. He took us to Ulva Island and was able to identify all the bird calls. He was very knowledgeable about all the plants and trees too. Bryan and Bev (20.8.22)

The birdlife on Ulva Island is enchanting, isn't it?
Thank you for exploring this beautiful place with us Bryan and Bev. It was lovely to show you around our backyard.

Other than walking tracks there isn't a heck of a lot else to do on the Island, so a short tour seemed like it would be a good thing to do, It was good seeing some spots and hearing the commentary that would have been missing otherwise.

We're glad you enjoyed your trip! Our locals are so knowledgeable about the island. Maybe next time try our Ulva Island Explorer Tour, it's a great way to discover the local birdlife.

We took 3 tours of senior citizens down to Stewart Island and did the Village and Bays tour on each one. We had both Bevan and Nicky as our guides. They were both kind, funny and patient. Lots of things learnt and many laughs had. These staff are both an absolute credit to RealNZ. Thanks so much!
