Private Punting on the Avon

Relax and Enjoy the Garden City

Sit back, relax and enjoy a romantic private Punt ride along the Avon River.

Travel leisurely from the historic Antigua Boat sheds, through the Botanic Gardens, and enjoy the spectacular flora that the ‘Garden City’ is famous for. Summer or winter, glide along the tranquil Avon River in Christchurch, as a skilled punter in traditional Edwardian attire propels you slowly along the water aboard these handcrafted flat-bottomed boats.

Chartering a Punt allows you to have the boat to yourselves, and the 45-minute ride duration offers an extra special experience. A Canopy and wedding decorations are also available as an add-on if you are looking to celebrate your big day in style. 

For an extra special experience, why not combine the punting with a Picnic For Two!

Punting on the Avon was absolutely fantastic! We had such an amazing time, everyone was so lovely and cheerful, it was better than I could have imagined. Our punter John was excellent! He gave us a very detailed tour of the gardens and was so sweet. They all congratulated us on our proposal, we were so happy with how it all went!
