We were initially very nervous about such a small plane. It was the smallest plane we had ever been on. However the staffs were very professional and even though it was very windy, our plane still landed safely and the pilot even took a picture with us because it was definitely a ride to remember. That day was so windy... More

was so glad the plane flew at a reasonable altitude so we had a wonderful view of areas we could never manage to hike to. they provide shuttle service to town and then back out to the airport.

Much the best way to visit Stewart Island. Only 20 minutes flying time and not any more expensive. No worries about high seas.

Small planes check, windy environment check, friendly staff check, On a good day you can't beat the flight to Stewart Island and back. On a windy day you'll never forget it! If you get the front seat then you can see how they fly the small thing.

The whole process with SIF was well managed and professional. I have been assured that the pilots are skilled and the planes are very safe...........I hate little planes !!! My husband on the other hand loved every minute of the flight there and back.

Rantin Rover has put all the details very well so I won't go over those again. I am terrified of small planes but the pilot/owner, Raymond, calmed me down considerably. The rest of the family loved the flight. We paid extra to land at Mason Bay on the way over - perfect weather for it that day. And we spent... More

It’s a bit ironic that the current top attraction on TA for Invercargill is the plane trip out of town (others may argue of course that’s because it marks your arrival!). We had read about how rough the boat crossing from Bluff to Stewart Island could be and my wife who is not a keen sailor was immediately put off... More

The day was stormy and very windy. The flight was short and very bumpy. I was glad when we landed. I was even more glad that it was a controlled landing. I was even more glad that we were coming back on the ferry.

the flight to the island is only a 15 minutes in a small twin engine plane and one the way back it was a single engine plane. In windy conditions it could be a rough. but the pilots do a great job.very satisfied. Lots of bird watching on the Island and good hiking.

Stewart Island Flights provided excellent value for money for their day trip to Stewart Island. The check in staff and pilot were helpful and efficient, the tour guide was very friendly and overall the tour was excellent. I would highly recommend Stewart Island Flights
