Diamond Harbour Ferry Service.

Legend has it that Diamond Harbour was so named because one of the early settlers observed the sun reflecting on the water and thought it looked like a thousand shining diamonds.

Whatever the reason, Diamond Harbour remains one of the sunniest and unspoilt destinations on Banks Peninsula and is great for a day trip. How about an energetic walk to Mt Herbert or a more relaxing stroll around the cliff tops and beaches, or simply a visit to one of the cafe's for delicious food or a coffee?

To get there we recommend you take the Diamond Harbour Ferry. The ferry has been operating on Lyttelton Harbour since 1888, connecting Diamond Harbour with Lyttelton. It's just a short 5 minute walk from the ferry jetty to the small township and ferries depart at least every hour throughout the day.

Black Cat’s ferry the Black Diamond was launched in May 2001 and was purpose built to operate as the new Diamond Harbour Ferry, replacing the historic Onawe. The introduction of the new vessel has meant the journey time is reduced to around 8 minutes with greater frequency throughout the day. In combination with buses from Lyttelton to downtown Christchurch, this allows residents of Diamond Bay to commute to the city.

"The perfect escape from the city. A must do day trip if you are living in or visiting Christchurch "- Natasha
