This tour combines a brief city highlights tour of Central Christchurch with an exhilarating Jet boat ride, “The Braided Blast”, on the snow fed Waimakariri River in the shallow river flats.
From Akaroa, drive through the picturesque Banks Peninsula to Christchurch. Following a stop at the botanical gardens, your driver will take you on a brief sightseeing tour highlighting the city landmarks and the city centre which was badly damaged by earthquakes in February 2011. See for yourself both the destruction of the central city and the rebuild that is taking place.
Following your city highlights tour, head north to the Waimakariri River. On your 30-minute jet boat ride, your driver will speed and spin in waters that is sometimes only centimeter’s deep. Experience the thrills of jet boating through shallow, shifting, and ever-changing courses of shingle bottom streams.
This tour from Akaroa to Christchurch is specifically designed for cruise ship passengers.
Our coach departs Akaroa at 10.30am and returns to Akaroa by 4.30pm. This will ensure you arrive at the cruise ship before departure.
