Stewart Island Ferry Services (Bluff - Stewart Island) operate an all-year scheduled ferry service and connecting bus service from Invercargill (and Te Anau and Queenstown - seasonal departures).
Experience Foveaux Strait onboard our express catamarans. During the one hour crossing keep a look-out for wildlife, especially sea birds. Watching mollymawks (albatross) soaring behind the ferry is a fantastic sight.
On arrival take a fascinating Paterson Inlet Cruise (and visit Ulva Island) or a Village and Bays Tour.
Alternatively, you can explore independently in a rental car, motor scooter or mountain bike or simply relax. Stewart Island is perfect for a day excursion.
