Recently flew from Invercargill to Mason Bay, with Stewart Island Flights. Excellent flight, friendly staff and pilot. Small plane (max 8 passengers) but it's only a 25-30 minutes flight to the island. Basically a scenic trip.

Our return trip was from Oban township and this was great too. Definitely well worth the money

I was very exited of exploring Stewart Island, but getting there was equally amazing.The flight is only 20 min and only a little more expensive than the ferry which takes 1 hr.If going from Sydney, one needs to have an overnight either in Christchurch or Invercagill due to the connecting flight or ferry times.The Island itself was very different to any places I have been, The beauty of it, tranqulity, cleanliness, the flora and fauna, even history captured my interest, and I cant wait to return to explore it and the surrounding islands.

Flew to Stewart Island for a day trip. The flight over was fine. The weather turned a bit wild in the afternoon, with strong winds. The pilot did a fantastic job, only one passenger tossed their cookies. Would definitely fly with this pilot again.

If you're visiting Stewart Island, Stewart Island Flights are an easy way to squeeze in an extra activity. The views from the plane are stunning, from the waves breaking off the mainland to the primaeval bush covering the island.

If you haven't flown in a small plane before, it's an even bigger treat. You might get the seat next to the pilot! Don't be too apprehensive though - the pilots are very professional and really make the trip worthwhile.

Loved the flight time to stewart island. Not fond of very small planes but ya gotta get there somehow and it's the safe way.
The pilots were great and very nice . Made sure we were all tucked in for travel before takeoff and landing.
