We love Punting On The Avon it was a high light for us visiting Christchurch. The young guys that we running the Punting were very professional and knowledgeable also well dressed for the job. We all got pure wool blankets to keep toasty while making our way up the river. Thanks to all the team. :)

We went punting as part of our City Pass. We had a boat all to ourselves so we were able to chat with the punter which was very nice. He gave us some incite into living and teaching in Christchurch. It was a cloudy day and a little cool but we were offered a blanket which kept us warm. It was a fun way to see some of the city from a different perspective, and very relaxing. The ride was only about 30 minutes long - which it had been longer!

I thought this was going to be nothing special when I booked it but I was wrong. First we called the morning of to book a spot later in the day. When we arrived we greeted and checked in. We had a full punt and the weather was lovely. What made the experience so great was the guide that lead us down the river, he not only tells you the history of some of the city and the river but also some of the wild life and plants as you past by.

It was a beautiful time out here on the punting... But an advice to book in advance sometimes u may b disappointed by no spaces available as they get full easily




雅芳河泛舟使用的船是一种没有龙骨的平底船。通常情况下,平底船长 6 到 8 米,宽约一米。船夫使用一根长约 5 米的篙,伸向河床,以此推动平底船前进,并掌控方向。这种推进船体的方法被称为“撑篙泛舟” (punting)。撑篙泛舟不仅仅只是使用船桨向前移动!






到 了19世纪八十年代,撑篙泛舟演变成一种消遣娱乐。乘客会悠闲地躺卧于豪华的阳伞之下,牛津式的撑篙泛舟逐渐发展起来。船夫站在船尾的平台上,娴熟地向后 撑篙。今天,撑篙泛舟的旅游活动在英国的剑桥和牛津蓬勃发展。在新西兰,可以在基督城的雅芳河或者尼尔森体验到撑篙泛舟的乐趣。
