Cruises from Christchurch
To the east, Christchurch's city landscape gives way to sweeping sandy beaches, seaside promenades and piers, sparkling waters, secret coves and picturesque bays. Cruises leaving from Lyttleton take visitors to Diamond Harbour and Quail Island for sightseeing, wildlife experiences and historic tours.
"A day out on the water watching the waves and wildlife is hard to beat. Pack a picnic and enjoy a bit of Christchurch 'island' time."
