Location:Christchurch & Canterbury
Glide along the peaceful Avon River in Christchurch, wrapped in luxury, as a skilled boatperson propels you through a romantic wonderland.
“Welcome aboard,” says your punter, dressed in striped blazer, braces, and wearing the straw hat known as a boater. The punter stands on a platform at the end. The passengers sit low down, although high seats can be installed for your comfort and convenience. We supply blankets, umbrellas and even hot water bottles, so you feel snug if it gets chilly.
Admire trailing willows and the Christchurch Botanic Gardens, return the waves from children and picnickers, choose to bring your own picnic, if you wish – this is “messing about in boats” the way it ought to be. Relax on velvet cushions and let your troubles melt away.
