Of course.... Stewart Island were on the bucket list... so we finally made it like so many other kiwi travelers we met. And of course a Ulva Island Tour a must do. We had a great time at Ulva Island, the boat trip was excellent, the staff super friendly, helpful and with great humor and knowledge. On the way to Ulva we stopped at a few bays on the way and received very interesting information. Arrived at Ulva Island and had a fantastic walk with our guide, we were split into two groups, that was great, not so many people in ones. The bush on Ulva is just awesome, all sorts of different greens :-) and our guide very knowledgeable about it. We saw some pretty awesome birds and heart lot of birds singing. Even the day turned out a bit rainy.. it did not matter. It was a well planed time for the visit, walking made very easy and in good speed for everybody. Back on the boat we were welcomed again by our humorous captain. Coffee and tea for free. Clean toilets with good space on board......
This was a really interesting and informative tour and was lucky enough to see Stewart Island robins, Kaka,Weka,Kerry and Bellaire on Ulva Island. Grace was a grest guide and we would highly recommend this tour to potential visitors to Stewart Island
Southern Discoveries provided a well organised, friendly service. The commentary was very informative all the way through, we enjoyed the lunch provided and all in all it was an awesome experience.
Milford Sound cruise is an incomparable experience. The views, the experience and the crews of Southern Discoveries are awesome. Definitely will repeat the experience.
Good service and trip unfortunately couldn’t access. ulva Island as too rough fully refunded but really appreciated staff and approach by provider
