Kaikoura Whale Watching
The charming sea-side town of Kaikoura is one of the leading eco-tourism destinations in New Zealand. Surrounded by towering mountain peaks the picturesque town remains like a page out of a history book with many of the towns old buildings restored and now housing a number of cafes and restaurants.
While the marine life at Kaikoura is vast, the giant sperm whale is the most famous inhabitant of the area, measuring up to 20 metres. The whale watching tours offered allow you to see these magnificent mammals in their natural habitat all year round, along with dusky and hectors dolphins, fur seals and an array of birdlife – making it an unforgettable experience.
