  • I thoroughly enjoyed my Ulva Island tour with Kat. We had such a lovely time and saw SO many birds, the 3 or so hours flew by. I also recommend the morning tour since thatโ€™s when the birds are most...

  • We had a great time out kiwi spotting and saw several of them going about their cute business. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Definitely a highlight of our New Zealand holiday!

  • Wow, I went kiwi spotting last night. The kiwi have been a bit shy lately. They donโ€™t always come out to play or make an appearance to greet tourists ๐Ÿ˜ฑ. But last night they did. I was privileged to see kiwi, foraging food, strutting its stuff in the bush and crossing the airfield. Where else in the world ๐ŸŒ would we see this. A great tour, informative and goes the extra mile. Very impressive ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿพ.
  • Ann and I did the kiwi spotting tonight only 2 of us and she still took us was most enjoyable and the host Angela was very knowledgeable and has a great respect for the kiwis on Stewart Island. They came close to us due to Angelas respect for them and us keeping quite. Definitely recommend !!
  • We did the Kiwi spotting tour and the Ulva Island tour with Ange, and were blown away by both experiences. We saw 4 kiwis on the spotlighting tour, and so much more on the Ulva Island tour. Seeing the kiwis in the wild was a huge deal for us, and something that we'd wanted to do for a very long time, as was seeing the range of other threatened birds on Ulva Island (which we did see). Ange is a passionate, friendly, professional and highly knowledgeable host and guide, and as people who are botanically inclined, found her knowledge on the flora and fauna, pest animals, and general history of the Stewart Island region first class. There are other guide companies on Stewart Island, but from everything we experienced and heard from people we spoke to who had done tours with others, it would be a mistake if you didn't choose Beaks and Feathers. Thanks Ange.
  • Highly recommended! Excellent operator, very dedicated to kiwi survival with a very knowledgeable young guide. We saw 2 kiwis in one evening walk
  • Well organised. We booked to go Kiwi spotting along the airport runway. It was disappointing as we didn't spot one Kiwi, which was very rare. We were offered a free night the next day to compensate.
