Depart Halfmoon Bay in our catamaran for an evening cruise across Paterson Inlet to Little Glory Cove. You will cruise past Ulva Island (a predator-free sanctuary) and learn about the history of Stewart Island.

When you disembark the vessel your experienced Nature Guide will lead you to the well-formed track across the peninsula. As dusk sets in you will walk via torchlight through the native forest and across beaches. Here will have one of your best chances to see Southern Brown Kiwi (Rakiura Tokoeka) as it searches for food. 

  • Approximately 4 hours duration, including cruise and nature walk
  • Tour led by an experienced Nature Guide
  • Small group
  • Only suitable for ages 15 years and over

Note: Due to the late return time of this tour, please ensure that you have booked accommodation on Stewart Island!
