Product details

Whale Watch Kaikoura is New Zealand’s ultimate all year round nature experience offering visitors exciting close encounters with Giant Sperm Whales.

Whale Watch is located in the town of Kaikoura, a scenic 2.5 hours’ drive north of Christchurch in New Zealand’s South Island. Towering snow-covered peaks fall to the ocean, while just offshore a deep undersea canyon attracts an extraordinary abundance of marine life, the most famous being the Sperm Whale. Kaikoura’s semi resident Sperm Whales are the largest living carnivore, they share their unique world with a host of the other whale and dolphin species, seals and albatross – all regular sightings aboard Whale Watch tours.

Whale Watch operate a fleet of modern catamarans designed specially for whale watching with a fully enclosed passenger cabin and outside decks offering great viewing and photo opportunities. Spacious air-conditioned interiors are fitted with comfortable seating while large plasma screens display award-winning marine wildlife animations.
