Shark Experience & Stewart Island

Description:

The Titi or Mutton Bird Island are a popular destination for some infamous locals - Great White Sharks!

As a diver this should put the Titi Islands high on your travel hit list as well. We wlll spend a day (cage) diving with the team from Shark Experience in Bluff. The large females should have arrived by now too.

We will then be dropped off in Oban, Stewart Island for 3 nights with plenty of time to explore this amazing place. We have booked a full day snorkeling trip and a chance to visit Ulva Island - famous for its bird life, & of course a late night walk could find us a true local hero - the kiwi!

This trip is also suitable for our non-diving friends & family.
