Kaikoura Whale Watching Tour

Full Day

Price from £156 per person

Depart Christchurch and travel north through the rural pastoral scenes of North Canterbury towards Kaikoura, one of NZ’s leading eco-tourism destinations that is world-renowned for its variety of marine mammals. Sperm and Humpback whales, dolphins and seals are all attracted here by the rich feeding grounds off the coast. On arrival, join a whale watch tour by boat or light aircraft - the choice is yours. There is also time to explore fur seal colonies located on the rocky shores surrounding Kaikoura. On the return journey to Christchurch a stop is made at a North Canterbury vineyard where wine tasting has been arranged.

A Canterbury Leisure Tours vehicle will pick you up from your hotel for your transfer to the departure point of your tour. Between 7.30am – 8.00am join your coach to commence a full day Kaikoura Whale Watch Tour.

Please note: As the wineries close 5pm a stop may not be possible should the tour be late in departing Kaikoura.
