While the Sperm Whale calls Kaikōura home and the main focus when we head out on our tours we at times come across other species of whales and dolphins as they are passing through these waters, in fact up to 14 other species can be sighted of the Kaikōura Coastline throughout the year!

When is the best time to come whale watching?

Even though Sperm whales can be found in Kaikōura all year round, when is the best time to go whale watching? Our answer? Every day is a good day to watch whales, but some times of the year offer better opportunities than others.

Happy New Year

We have been having some fantastic tours out at sea with 3-4 semi-resident sperm whales feeding in the canyon.

COVID-19 (NOVEL CORONAVIRUS)

As a result of the latest restrictions and alert levels announced by the New Zealand Government, we have made the decision to temporarily close Whale Watch Kaikōura effective close of business 23rd March 2020.

This is a decision that has not been taken lightly, but we need to play our part in ensuring the health & safety of our staff, visitors and the Kaikōura community. We also acknowledge that we all have a part to play in helping in the fight against Covid-19.
