Ferry trip from Bluff to Rakiura was a great way to see the island for the first time, and the coach transfer from Invercargill airport to Bluff was very smooth. Rhys from RealNZ also gave us a lift from Lee Bay back to Oban when we bumped into him after finishing the Rakiura Track which was very much appreciated! Great people and great business.

We rented Electric Bikes on Stewart Island and it was fantastic! There are two vendors, one ran out of bikes, and was kind enough to walk us over to another vendor in the Red Barn were we were able to rent the bikes and tour the island. Everyone was very kind and helpful.

Can highly recommend this bus tour around Stewart Island.
Our driver Rhys was so knowledgeable of the island, and linked culture and history seamlessly into his narrative.
Excellent information and interaction with “ the tourists”.

What a sensational evening with THE best crew from Stewart Island RealNZ.

A Kiwi spotting evening where we saw, Fish feeding, Albatross, Mollymork, Titi, Penguins, Seals and their pups, Jellyfish, and KIWI.. and two trying to mate! (She was having none of it though), they came around our feet as they foraged as well. What a night.
Big shout out to skipper Nick, and our amazing guides Britt & Jens.. We were blown away by you next level guiding, knowledge, excitement and care. Thank you.

Not just a Kiwi Encounter, much more. Went to look for fur seals, albatross, blue and yellow eyed penguins as well as the Kiwi trail. Very helpful crew, Nick the boat skipper along with Brit and Yens.
