Marine Bird Spotlight - Albatross
Along with the amazing marine mammals we encounter in the Kaikōura area, we are privileged to see many other taonga (treasured) species. New Zealand is the seabird capital of the world.
A Look Back Over October 2017
Throughout October we saw semi-resident Sperm Whale Holy Moly along with plenty of transient male Sperm Whales soaking up the abundance of food on offer in the Kaikōura Canyon. Some of these transient whales were absolutely huge! Well on the larger side of the size spectrum.
When is the best time to come whale watching?
A question I get asked often is “When is the best time to come whale watching?” My first answer would be “Every day is a good day to come whale watching” after all we have sperm whale feeding off our coastline all year round.
