“Great Experience”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

I have had the privileged to take this flight on many occasions going to the island for work. Although it is a very small plane it is an amazing way to get an aerial view of Stewart Island,the straight and Otatara.

“A wonderful flight with Pilot Ray!”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

My husband and I did the return flight to Stewart Island early January and it was a great experience. It was totally unexpected to be checked in by the pilot himself - he has a great sense of humour. I got to sit up front with him as I wanted to take photo's out of the window. Ray gave me headphones to wear and we got a commentary all the way. A memorable holiday, thanks Ray.

“A great flight and swampy crossing”
Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

We took the flight to land on the beach at Masons Bay to do the coast to coast walk. The main aim was to see a kiwi in the wild and we were lucky enough to be among the one in 3 that did. The walk itself is relatively easy as it is flat but with good views but far less spectacular than the great walks in Fjordland. Be aware that after rain there are a number of patches of quite deep mud to get through.

“Fantastic experience not to be missed”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Raymond of Stewart Island Flights took my impromptu phone call late on a Sunday night and by early Monday afternoon we were flying with him over to Stewart Island where he had arranged a package at the hotel (with breakfast included) and a water taxi to wonderful Ulva Island. Ulva Island is not to be missed. There we were the only two people on the whole island in the late afternoon listening to and watching birds and walking the wonderful annotated trails.

This is a most wonderful overnight (or 2-3 day) holiday while in the Southland of New Zealand.

Thanks Raymond!!

“Flight to Stewart Island”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Small plane but delightful area views and staff were friendly and helpful. Liked the fact that you could leave your luggage in Invercargill and only take what you need
