Explore the best of Lyttelton and Diamond Harbour by ferry

City commuters and day trippers alike love the Diamond Harbour Ferry. Get away from it all in the space of the few minutes it takes to hop over Whakaraupō/Lyttelton Harbour between Lyttelton Port and Diamond Harbour. There’s space for all – wheelchairs, pushchairs, dogs, shopping, the lot. Make sure you’ve got your Metrocard for the best available fares. 

Hot Tip

If you're catching the bus to the ferry and using a Metrocard, make sure you ask the driver at the beginning of your journey to charge the fare for the ferry (Zone 3). This will give you free transfers between buses and the ferry within two hours, and mean you don’t pay extra.
