Black Cat Cruises

Port - Akaroa & Lyttelton , Christchurch

Creating an Unforgettable Event

Black Cat's Charter Cruises make it possible for function and event organisers to create a dramatically different event - whether it's for a
social club group, function, conference delegate entertainment or something very special, like a wedding, hens or stag night.

You have the opportunity to enjoy the highlights of our Lyttelton or Akaroa cruises in the comfort of our spacious catamarans Black Cat in Akaroa or Canterbury Cat in Lyttelton harbour.

We add the option of a fully catered buffet meal, courtesy of and you have a complete experience on the water.

Summer evening cruises give you the chance to enjoy the backdrop of a stunning sunset over the water, as you and your guests relax to your choice of music with a full bar and catering on hand.

But don't take our word for it, here is a testimonial from one of our recent clients:
"I would like to take this opportunity of extending our sincere thanks to you and your crew for having us on board the Black Cat yesterday. The weather was perfect, the surroundings were breath taking, your crew were absolutely flawless and our clients (and staff) were in high spirits for the whole afternoon. All in all I would say that yesterday was the most successful, and also one of the most uncomplicated client functions I have ever organised. It's always enjoyable to deal with a team as professional and courteous as yours."
