Introduction

The Clutha River was first crossed by rowing boats until community agitation for the establishment of a punt at Tuapeka Mouth was successful in 1895.

The Tuapeka Mouth Ferry, also commonly referred to as the Tuapeka Mouth Punt, was officially opened on 22 February 1896.

The punt is still operational today and operates on an established schedule when conditions are suitable (see below).
