Take a leisurely 40 minute cruise out to Stevensons Peninsula and then into Stevensons Arm, home to Mount Burke high country sheep station. Rolling green pastures precede Mount Gold and Mount Burke which rise majestically into the Eastern skyline.

Relax in comfort as you cruise up the arm to Stevensons Island where Dual Image will make a beach landing. Your guide will take you ashore via the front loading ramp for a short hike to the summit of the Island and some excellent photo opportunities.

As a Department of Conservation refuge, the 65 Ha Island is home to many species of birds that are hard to see elsewhere in NZ. Native Wood Pigeon, South Island Tomtit, Brown Creepers, Grey Warblers and Rifleman are just some of the species you may encounter.

The island is also an inspiration for photographers - shaped by eons of winds that funnel down the arm, rock and twisted trunks meld into a patina of nature’s finest backdrops.
