New Zealand: Stewart Island – Cruising into Sunset

Strong 20m/s winds from the East required the ship to go around the western side of the Stewart Island to get some cover from the waves and wind. Stewart Island is otter referred as the third island of New Zealand as it is quite large and most of it is wilderness with thousands of kiwi roaming in relative rat-free safety. As we cruised into the sunset, various see birds, including massive albatrosses, accompanied the ship.
