This tour takes you on a sightseeing tour north of Christchurch, to Kaikoura, a traditional fishing village nestled between the Southern Alps and the Pacific Ocean, to enjoy the ultimate marine experience - a close encounter with a giant Sperm Whale.

On our scenic tour, Dusky Dolphins feature strongly and you may also see Orcas, Seals and the rare Hectors Dolphins.  Kaikoura also attracts a great concentration of seabirds, including Albatross, Petrel, and Sherwater. 

Your Whale Watch Tour by boat is a unique experience, and sightings vary.  On a typical Whale Watch Tour, with up to 2.5 hours on the water, you should sight the giant Sperm Whales.  You may also encounter New Zealand Fur Seals, Dusky Dolphins, and the endangered wandering Albatross.

Kaikoura is renowned for its crayfish (lobster).  Your driver will show you where the many eateries are located to purchase lunch, including fresh crayfish.

Observe the seals while they bask on the coastal rocks.
