Bring a friend or your whanau and discover this local gem in the heart of Stewart Island/Rakiura! Enjoy our flexible on demand ferry, with commentary on the scenic journey across Paterson Inlet to Ulva Island for as little as $25 per adult and $10 per child, return. Alternately, join a guided group for just $145pa to completely immerse yourself in the island's history, bird song and beauty. Ulva Island/Te Wharawhara combines native bush, picturesque sandy beaches, rocky outcrops and around 4.5 kilometres of easy walking track. Declared pest-free in 1997, Ulva Island provides a habitat where rare plants and endangered birds are allowed to thrive: it is a unique opportunity to spot Stewart Island robin, kakariki and saddlebacks among others.
