The ultimate Christchurch must-do combo!

Christchurch Triple pass: Tram, Punting & Gondola combo

Christchurch Triple pass: Tram, Punting & Gondola combo

The ultimate opportunity to tick off three of Christchurch’s most famous attractions, this combo includes an all day tram ticket, 30 minute Avon river punt ride & a return trip on the Port Hill Gondola.

The Christchurch Trams offer a unique experience combining history and sightseeing. An all-day hop-on hop-off ticket allows you to visit the central city sights at your leisure and the friendly and knowledgeable drivers will keep you updated about the latest city changes in their informative live commentaries.

An iconic Christchurch activity not to be missed. Admire the beautiful Christchurch Botanic Gardens as you are expertly guided gently along the Avon River. Punting tours are set aboard handcrafted flat-bottomed boats, poled along by your Punter from the platformed till at the rear end of the boat. An ideal group or family activity, Punting on the Avon is an eco-friendly way to relax and enjoy Christchurch from a different perspective.

An unmissable Christchurch experience, the Gondola offers stunning unique views of the city, Lyttelton Harbour and beyond from the summit station situated atop the Port Hills. A great family-friendly spot to explore for locals and visitors, a visit to the Gondola is a must-do activity.

Take in the spectacular 360-degree views and see Christchurch from a different perspective: gaze at the snow-capped Southern Alps, sprawling Canterbury Plains and the sparkling waters of Pegasus Bay and the Pacific Ocean.

Why is this Chuffed Worthy?

Mat & Natalie are the husband & wife team behind Boom Sailing. After sailing professionally all over the world, Mat decided the Coromandel Peninsula was the place for him, and sharing his passion for the sport & this place with visitors was a great way to fill his time. We love supporting Kiwi owned & operated passion projects, and Boom Sailing is a classic example of this type of business! It’s also one of the most popular Chuffed experiences.

*Please note that due to Covid, this experience is not operating over the 2021-2022 summer period. We expect it will resume operating next summer* 

Darryl and his family had a dream 21 years ago, to start their own business showing visitors their backyard – the Bay of Islands, ‘The Winterless North’. Offering travellers food and refreshments is a kiwi tradition, so why not pair it with a relaxing river cruise to see the Haruru Falls up the Waitangi River

Depart from Paihia Wharf and join Darryl and the crew on board the Ratanui, a custom-built river cruising boat, made for gliding through the water of the calm inland waterways. This 2.5 hour cruise will take you along the Waitangi River, where the bird life is abundant.

The friendly crew are a mine of information and love to share the history of the area. Relax in the comfy leather seating with a glass of your favourite drink, and mingle with the other travellers – you never know who you’ll meet.

There is a cash bar for your convenience.

All food is cooked fresh onboard and served straight off the BBQ. Start with Tiger prawns and Green-Lipped mussels accompanied with bread and dips. Then choose from beef sirloin, lamb or steamed fish for your main. There’s even a little kiwi marshmallow specialty to round off your meal.
