Stewart Island Ferry Services

You’ll zip across Foveaux Strait between Bluff and Stewart Island in just one hour aboard our 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. Our friendly staff provide informative commentary and point out highlights.

We offer an all-year daily scheduled ferry service with complimentary tea and coffee served aboard.  Daily coach connections are available from Invercargill and in the summer, from Te Anau and Queenstown.
