  • Fabulous way to see the Botanic Gardens from the river in punting on the River Avon. Cool concept and really makes you realize how "English" Christchurch feels. 
  • A lot of activities can be done here from punting or canoeing. While enjoying the whole strecth of river with alot of ducks you can also enjoy the whole view of the city and nature at same time. With free blankets and comfy seats this will make your nostalgic ride a memorable one.
  • Came here with my friend from Wellington. We created the virtual tour of the place but i had never been. It was amazing, the food was fantastic and it kept the little one and the big one well entertained and the location is beautiful especially on a hot day. I have reccomended this to many now. 5*
  • This place is a must-visit when you are near the Botanic Gardens. It is a bit like Venice, with the fancily dressed canoe pushers, romantic atmosphere, and ducks floating past occasionally. If you feel up to it, you can choose to row a kayak yourself or with a partner! In that case it would look more like one of those rowing competitions, so you might want to wear something more casual for that. There is a cafe just around the corner, they have $2 ice creams.
  • Great place with a good view - On the expensive side of things however
  • Was great ride ..great thing for a date
