Whale Watch Tour

Price from £74 per person

Experience a Whale Watch tour for an exciting up-close encounter with Kaikoura's resident Giant Sperm Whales, the largest living carnivore - equivalent in size to four elephants.  They share their unique world with a host of other whale and dolphin species, seals and albatross - all regular sightings aboard your tour.  Travel aboard modern catamarans designed specially for whale watching, with engines that minimise underwater noise and toilets that never pollute the sea. The main passenger cabin is enclosed and outside decks offer great viewing and photo opportunities. Spacious air-conditioned interiors are fitted with comfortable seating while large plasma screens display award-winning marine wildlife animations. If your Whale Watch Kaikoura tour does not see a whale you will receive a refund of 80% of the fare.
