We got married on Stewart Island 9 years ago and decided to go back and complete the 9 day tramp that we had pulled out of because of an injury on our Honeymoon. This was our Honeymoon redo! Stewart Island Flights looked after us very well. The flight over to the Island was awesome - views are incredible and as we flew over Oban we could see the church we got married in!

After 9 days of tramping the North West Circuit we were picked up at Masons Bay beach by Stewart Island Flights. We walked out to the beach to wait for the plane and right on time it suddenly appeared, did a flyby and then reappeared for a landing. The flight out was great to look over some of the track we just walked. The pilot was helpful and professional going over the safety tips. Then we were quickly back in Invercargill to accomodation and real food again!!

For the price difference between taking flight from Invercargill or ferry from Bluff, we have taken the better option as the seas were choppy when viewed from the air. The scenery from upon takeoff to landing was worth more than the fare of the air tickets.
Dislike: None.

Much better than the ferry. Fun flight and very efficient staff. Get to see the coastlines of South Island and Stewart Island on this short flight.

We did a day trip to Stewart island, it's just such a unique experience using a small airline , everyone has to do it at least once in their life.

Awesome views...a quick 20min flight, not flying too high. Regular flights throughout the day.
