We chose the flights over the ferry as there wasn't a lot of difference price-wise, and we could leave excess baggage at Invercargill airport. It fitted in with us dropping off a hire car at the airport and collecting one on our return. Went over on a 10-seater and 15-yr-old son got to sit next to the pilot. You fly so low you can leave your cellphone on. We were met at the airfield by Stewart in a van, and transferred to Oban. We reversed the journey 4 days later, but this time on a 6-seater. Had the same friendly pilot both times. A little bit bumpy, but the views are fabulous.
