The kiwi encounter portion was the best part. We spent about 2 and 1/2 hours walking through the bush. The kiwi we came across allowed us to observe it for about 35 to 40 minutes.. It came right up to our feet!

As I explained above, the kiwi encounter was the best part. We were able to observe a kiwi for 35 to 40 minutes. It was awesome!

Latest Questions about Guided Walk - Wild Kiwi Encounter (Stewart Island)

Can you take ferry back on same night?

Comments

Unfortunately it's not possible to do the Wild Kiwi encounter and head back from Stewart Island to Bluff on the same night. The Wild Kiwi Encounter departs anywhere between 4pm and 8pm depending on the season and takes 4 hours and the last ferry leaves well before this tour finishes.

Hi
Do you accept 10 yr olds on this tour? He is very fit

Comments

Hi !

Thank you so much for your enquiry 


Unfortunately, the minimum age for this trip is 15 years old. They have decided on the minimum age requirement, as the trip involves a 2-hour hike, and complete silence throughout the journey as any noises would scare the kiwis. 


We are so sorry about this, but please let me know if you would be interested in any of the other activities we offer on Stewart Island such as the Ulva Island explorer & Village & bays tour

is it $50 each?

Comments

Hi Siobhan. Yes the cost for the Stewart Island Experience guided walk is $50 per person. Please note that if you are not already on the island you will also need to book and pay for the Stewart Island Ferry.
