    Stewart island boat charter

    Hi guys

    Looking at some of the northern blocks in Stewart Island for a hunt sometime next year.

    Have been there on a fixed wing before but want to try a different block this time.

    Hoping someone on here will know someone in Bluff or Invercargill that does water transports over there. If you could give me a contact that would be awesome.

    Cheers
    David

    Water taxi did runs to the likes of Christmas village and Yankee River when I was there years back (depending on conditions), maybe cheaper option doing ferry to Oban then water taxi than paying for a boat from Bluff.

    There are few that do it but if your looking at Northern blocks ( Mt Anglem end) its probably just as cheap to chopper to it, try heliventures in Invercargill
    Shut up, get out & start pushing!

    That's who I went with last time. I think it was about $2000. They were the cheapest by a long shot. Good service too. But a bit restrictive on gear if you want to take dive gear etc due to weight.
    Overkill is still dead.

    Mana charters is the only one with a website I can find. Any idea about the name and contact for this new operator?
