Mason Bay is a phenomenal beach which must be seen to be believed. Stretching 19 kilometres from end to end, Mason Bay never fails to amaze. The chance to experience its unrivalled beauty is only an exhilarating beach flight away. Flights operate at low tide landing on the beautiful sandy beach.
All aircrafts (Britten Norman Islanders, Piper Cherokee Six and Cessna 185) are maintained to the highest standard and fulfil all safety requirements. The flight between Invercargill airport and and Stewart Island takes 30 minutes.
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.
Trampers can take in spectacular aerial views of Paterson Inlet and Mason Bay before an exciting beach landing - definitely a one-of-a-kind experience! The walk between Mason Bay and the Freshwater Hut is an invigorating four hours on mostly flat tracks, including a stretch of boardwalk over the island's Chocolate Swamp.
