Coast to Coast

The Stewart Island Coast to Coast is one of Stewart Island Flights’ most popular and unique innovations. Appealing to any traveller up for a taste of New Zealand in its natural untouched state, the Coast to Coast is a gentle sample of the island’s more rigorous North-West Circuit.

  • Walkers can take in spectacular aerial views of Paterson Inlet and Mason Bay before an exciting beach landing – definitely a one-of-a-kind experience!
  • Walk between Mason Bay and Freshwater Hut, an invigorating four hours on mostly flat tracks, including a stretch of boardwalk over the island’s Chocolate Swamp
  • From Freshwater Hut, walkers enjoy a scenic boat trip with Seaview Water Taxis along the meandering Freshwater River, crossing Paterson Inlet to Golden Bay
  • Alternatively the trip can be made in reverse, from Golden Bay through to Mason Bay, flying from the beach back to Oban to gain an aerial perspective of the track while the memories are still fresh

* Minimum 3 Adults, or 2 Adults pay the fare for 3 Adults.

A number of options are available, including overnight stays at either the Mason Bay or Freshwater Department of Conservation huts. This allows for the increased opportunity of spotting New Zealand’s national bird, the kiwi, in its natural environment.

The Coast to Coast is a trip to remember, whether as a day trip or a 3-day holiday.
