School holiday fun is right here over on Quail Island!

If you are looking for an awesome, outdoors, educational school holiday activity in Christchurch then look no further…

Best of all adults cruise at kids prices throughout the April school holidays. Under 5's cruise free all year regardless!

So what’s it all about?
Well, six native New Zealand birds are hiding around Quail Island. These Big Beautiful Birds have been painted in watercolour by a local Lyttelton artist.

Each piece of art has been blown up and printed on very large boards, so they look amazing and will be hard to miss.

You will also be given a map to help you locate all of the birds. Each bird is accompanied by some facts to help teach our younger generation about our native wildlife.

So Black Cat Cruises invite you to come and explore Quail island and find them all, whilst learning a little bit about each bird.

Complete their fun fact sheet and we’ll reward you with surprise treats on your boat ride back to Lyttelton.

A boat ride, fresh air, education, exercise, nature and fun all rolled into one!

The April school holiday starts on Saturday, April 17th and goes through to Sunday, May 2nd, 2021.

The boat departs twice daily from B Jetty in Lyttleton harbour.

10.15 am and 12.15 pm

12.30 pm and 3.30 pm
Online booking is recommended which you can do on their website.
