Orca pay us a visit today
Thursday 13th November 2014
We awoke to a new blanket of snow on the Kaikoura ranges this morning which was beautiful. Our day out at sea has been eventful with sperm whales being sighted along with a pod of orca for a part of the day. It is always such a treat when they pass through Kaikoura. There is a bit of wind on the forecast overnight but hopefully it doesn't come to much.
Beautiful spring days!

We have had some amazing trips over the last few days with some fabulous weather to go with it. There are two sperm whales feeding close inshore - Tiaki and Tutu along with loads of dusky dolphins, seals and marine birds being sighted when time allows.
Windy few days

It has been a windy few days in Kaikoura, we have managed to get a few trips out today though before the wind picked up again offshore making conditions unsuitable for whale watching. Here is hoping that things improve over the weekend.

Great news today with two of our semi-resident Sperm Whales Tiaki and Tutu making a long awaited return to our inshore operating area, its been sometime since we last sighted these two whales so its great to see them back home!!

Weds 29th October 2014
Its been an interesting week since our last update with some windy periods mixed in with some stunning days. We have managed to locate our normal residents in Sperm Whales and Dusky Dolphins but have also encountered migrating Humpback Whales and Blue Whales this week which was a fantastic treat for passengers and crew alike. Bit of a windy day today but our morning round of tours managed to sail and locate a Sperm Whale offshore and a humpback whale inshore, hoping for nice conditions tomorrow!
