Our annual Easter Egg Hunt hosted on beautiful Quail Island is back once again!
Take the family or gather up some friends this Easter for a fun-filled day on Quail Island. Search the island for coloured tokens and exchange for scrumptious Easter eggs*. On your journey discover along the way old shipwrecks, cheeky native birds, volcanic cliffs and hidden caves!
The Easter Bunny is getting prepared to leave thousands (yes thousands!) of delicious chocolate eggs with us.
Tickets are limited! Making this the hottest and tastiest Easter activity in town!

How can I book?
Firstly, you must book your tickets with us. This can be done by calling 0800 436 574 or jumping online at www.blackcat.co.nz. We highly recommend booking in advance because we sell out on every day, every year
How does it work?
Come down to B Jetty in Lyttelton at least 15 minutes before your departure time. Our skipper will be there to welcome you on board the Canterbury Cat as you then cruise across Lyttelton Harbour to disembark at the wharf on Quail Island. Our Black Cat Cruises crew (along with the Easter Bunny of course) will have hidden coloured tokens around the island. Every guest on our Easter Egg Hunt is encouraged to collect a maximum of three coloured tokens which we then swap for your chocolate eggs on your ferry ride back.
Find the golden egg to win a GIANT CHOCOLATE BUNNY. There will be one golden egg hidden every day over the long weekend.
The Quail Island Ferry now operates all year round.
