The ferry is a great way to get from Bluff to Stewart Island. Ours was a smooth crossing..takes just an hour. No entertainment on the boat but plenty of tourist brochures to read. Young and pleasant staff sell basic refreshments. Don't forget to drive from the ferry terminal in Bluff up to the lookout which is a steep drive up the hill. A nice path to walk to the lookout and lined with interesting information about the Maori history and local fauna and flora. Don't forget the famous signpost "at the end of the world" - drive south along the coast from the terminal - about 10 minutes. There appears to be a cafe there though closed when we were there. Great photo opportunity at the signpost that indicates distances to major international cities.
