Few places in the world can boast of such natural and unique wonders like Kaikōura, both on the land and in the ocean.

Kaikōura is a coastal town on the South Island of Aotearoa New Zealand. It’s known for its abundant wildlife and its population of sperm whales and dusky dolphins. The Kaikōura Peninsula Walkway winds from the town centre to lookout points at Point Kean.

Close by, the rock platforms are home to a colony of New Zealand fur seals. The 1800s Fyffe House is a cottage built on a foundation of whalebones, with displays on the town’s whaling past. Fortunately only whale watching exists now. 

Enjoy the multitude of marine animals including our resident sperm whales, dusky dolphins, and NZ fur seals and other whale species migrating through. In season a magical winter snow landing on the top of Mount Fyffe for incredible views of beautiful Seaward Kaikōura Ranges, towering 2500 metres straight out of the Pacific Ocean.  

Let us plan your perfect 'Uniquely Kaikōura' experience  with South Pacific Helicopters NZ. We offer year round epic experiences.
