The reef is home to spectacular corals, a multitude of brightly colourful tropical fish, giant turtles, manatees, manta rays, whales, dolphins and sharks - no place on earth has a greater variety of life.

The city tour will show you the fast paced style and vibrance of this spectacular city. Tour through the historic Rocks area and take in views of the Opera House, Hyde Park, St Mary’s Cathedral, Parliament House and the Art Gallery before heading under the Harbour Bridge to Mrs MacQuarie’s Chair. Carved from a rock ledge for Governor Lachlan Macquarie's wife, the site affords great views of the harbour and Harbour Bridge. Continue to The Gap where you will be treated to stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and then head to Bondi, Australia’s most famous surf beach. Your tour ends with a drive through the cosmopolitan suburb of Kings Cross, Paddington and the exclusive Eastern Suburbs.
Discover Christchurch - Whether you are a first time visitor or have limited time to take in the sights, this is a great tour to get your bearings and discover the highlights of the South Island's largest and most beautiful city.
Enjoy a full commentary on the city’s major attractions and historic sights from your friendly local guide as your coach meanders through the city. After pick-up from your hotel, the tour travels through the University of Canterbury, down to Riccarton House and Bush and then through Monavale Gardens where you will have a chance to have a short stroll with 5.5 hectares of richly landscaped gardens, ponds and fountains.
The tour then continues into the central city, through Hagley park, the boat sheds, Botanical Gardens Arts Centre in the historic Buildings that were once Canterbury University, past the Museum, Art Galley and Victoria Clock Tower before moving on to the Catholic Basillica, then onto the seaside suburb of Sumner, then to Lyttleton Harbour, a volcanic crater which is now the port of Christchurch.

Abel Tasman Seals & Beach - Spend a leisurely day exploring New Zealand's finest coastal National Park as you cruise aboard the state-of-the-art Abel Tasman Voyager and also wander around spectacular Bark Bay estuary.
Covering just 22,520 hectares, the Abel Tasman National Park is New Zealand’s smallest National Park but perhaps the best known due to its 91km of beautiful coastline. Just north of Motueka, the park is popular with nature lovers visiting the seal colony, trampers who want to explore the lush subtropical forest, kayakers taking to the crystal clear waters in search of dolphins and day trippers who simply want to relax on one of the golden sand beaches.
Head to Kaiteriteri, where you board Abel Tasman Voyager, a state-of-the-art, 140-passenger catamaran with two decks; one lower covered deck and one open viewing deck. Cruise into Tonga Island Marine Reserve, pausing to watch the antics of its resident Fur Seal Colony. Land at historic Tonga Quarry beach to walk 2-2½ hours (4.1 kms, 2.5 miles) over a forested saddle and around spectacular Bark Bay estuary with its cascading waterfalls. Reboard your vessel at the sheltered golden cove, Medlands Beach, for a return cruise to Kaiteriteri.
