Black Cat ferry

Black Cat run a ferry service between Lyttelton and Diamond Harbour.

The service takes 8 minutes and departs at least once an hour during the day.

Used by both commuters and visitors to the harbour, the service connects with the Christchurch bus system.

Passengers can expect beautiful views of the harbour before arriving a short 5 minute walk away from centre of the small Diamond Harbour township. A number of walking tracks, hidden beaches, and enticing coastline vistas await those who wish to explore. For those looking to relax, the domain is popular on weekends and only a stone's throw away from the Cafe and a good cup of coffee.
