    What to Expect
    Board a modern catamaran at the Stewart Island Ferry Terminal for a leisurely cruise around Paterson Inlet. Your guide narrates the stunning scenery and shares fascinating tales about early European settlement and Maori history.
    Sail past landmarks to hidden coves and beaches, and visit the historical whaler’s base at Prices Inlet. Keep a lookout for penguins and New Zealand fur seals that inhabit the waters around Stewart Island.
    On arrival at the renowned Ulva Island Bird Sanctuary, embark on an easy walk with a local expert as your guide. Home to bush robins, rare saddlebacks, and yellowheads, among other bird species, this wildlife preserve offers a rare glimpse of endemic and endangered species. Encountering inquisitive weka (native woodhen) on the beach is a regular highlight!
    Discover protected habitat for some of New Zealand’s rarest plant species before re-boarding your vessel for the return trip around Paterson Inlet back to Stewart Island.
