Discover New Zealand's third island, Stewart Island, from the water on a leisurely cruise of beautiful Paterson Inlet and a guided walk in Ulva Island Wildlife Sanctuary.
This Stewart Island cruise will showcase some of Paterson Inlet's stunning scenery with its hidden coves and unspoilt beaches. You'll hear fascinating stories of early Maori history and European settlement from your local guide as you pass various landmarks. Your guide is passionate about this area, provides informative commentary and is more than happy to answer questions. While on board, keep a look out for fur seals and penguins who frequent the area often.
Paterson Inlet is home to renowned wildlife sanctuary Ulva Island and you'll stop there for a 45 minute guided walk. The island is home to weka (native woodhen), bush robins, rare saddlebacks and yellowheads amongst other species. It is also a protected habitat for some of New Zealand's rarest plant species. a regular highlight is to encounter an inquisitive weka on the beach.
For the remainder of the cruise around Paterson Inlet, relax on board the modern catamaran and enjoy the coastal scenery before heading back to base.

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
