What You Can Expect

Make your way to the centrally-located ferry terminal in Bluff 30 minutes before your scheduled departure time, and present this voucher for the ferry crossing.

Find a comfortable seat onboard the fully-enclosed catamaran, and watch for wildlife during the crossing: it’s common to see albatross and titi birds following in the wake of the boat. If you’d like to learn more about the natural environment you’re passing though, you’ll find interpretive handouts on the ferry, and staff are available to point out any highlights of the journey. You'll cover a distance of roughly 25 miles (40km) while crossing the Foveaux Strait, which was first sighted by Europeans when Captain Cook circumnavigated New Zealand in 1770. 

This 1-hour trip concludes at the Stewart Island Visitor Terminal.
