The team at Whale Watch Kaikoura are continually humbled by the ongoing support we are receiving from our friends near and far. We can’t thank you all enough for your continued patience as we work towards being able to operate our whale watching tours again.
It is now one month on, it may seem slow but we can assure you that progress is being made daily, however we are still unable to provide you with a definite date but we are working hard on this.
New legislation has been past through government to help speed up the repair work on the Kaikōura Marina and plant is currently being mobilised from Christchurch, we are hopeful that work will begin soon.
Huge progress is being made in regards to road access to Kaikōura with the Inland Road route under supervised convoy Mon – Fri and State Highway 1 set to open also under supervised convoy mid-December. (All subject to weather conditions and seismic activity).
