With the shape of the peninsula reminiscent of the fluke of a whale, and the Kaikoura ranges rising up behind with their snow-capped peaks, it is here that your whale watching adventure begins

Kaikōura is home to sperm whales year round, as well as a popular migratory and feeding route for many other species of whales and dolphins. From the air passengers can experience the true magnitude of the world’s largest mammal, the whale.
