“Super fast, super fun”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

Booked a one way flight from Stewart Island to Invercargill, having taken the ferry from Bluff and wanting to see the arial view, as well as save time. It was easy to book online, and the office is easy to reach from the center of town in Stewart Island. The flight itself was gorgeous! Beautiful landscape. The pilot was funny and full of facts, and the arrival at the airport was smooth and seamless. If you're thinking about it, just do it! At least one way :)

“Super little airline”
Reviewed March 30, 2012

Booked a full day tour through them, which included a trip over to Ulva Island and a sightseeing trip around Steware Island. The flight over was good fun and very much a small operation (the guy who checked me in for the flight turned out to also be the pilot!)

Once we'd got over to Stewart Island, first order of the day was the nature reserve of Ulva Island. A short boat trip and I was left to explore the island for 3 hours - I thought that might be too long, but it's exactly how long you need if you're going to walk all the trails on the island. Quite a special place and I was fortunate enough to catch sight of a Stewart Island kiwi (apparently there's only about 30 of them on the island).

Back to Stewart Island for lunch (somewhat limited options here), before a very entertaining and informative 90 minute minibus tour of Stewart Island. The return flight was a bit bumpy due to the weather, but did have the bonus of a grass landing back at Invercargill.

All in all, a very special day!

“The way to see Stewart Island”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

The short 20 minute flight is great for gaining a perspective of Stewart Island from the air. You land over the township and have great views down to the south and west which bring home the size of the island. It is expensive but they do great standbys and other deals so well worth checking out
