You’ll zip across Foveaux Strait between Bluff and Stewart Island in just one hour aboard comfortable catamarans.
It’s an interesting stretch of water, home to several islands including Dog Island (spot the lighthouse), Ruapuke Island and the Titi Islands, and a considerable fishing industry.
During your trip, keep an eye out along the way for wildlife – particularly seabirds such as the Mollymawk and Titi. Friendly staff provide informative commentary and point out highlights.
An all-year daily scheduled ferry service is available with complimentary tea and coffee served aboard.
