If you feel unwell the day of travel, or have been in contact with anyone who has Covid the week prior to departure we ask that you call to re-schedule your trip. 



We want all of our customers to be re-assured that we will fully refund or offer to reschedule all bookings if cancelled outside of 24 hours of your reservation time.

My Vaccine passes and face masks are no longer required to join any of our trips.


With the removal of the New Zealand traffic light system guests are no longer required to wear masks upon any of our vessels. We do ask that if you feel unwell that you refrain from travelling. 



Our priority is the health and wellbeing of our customers, staff and their families. We have put these measures in place as directed by the New Zealand government to keep both guests and staff as safe as possible. We are recognised as Covid clean by Qualmark and Covid Ready by the Tourism Export Council. During all levels Black Cat staff will continue to clean all surfaces at the start and end of each trip and offer hand sanitiser to passengers. 

If you have any query regarding any existing booking or our current schedule –
please contact our reservations team on
0800 436 574 (or 64 3 304 7641) or email [email protected].
