Thursday 24th July 2014
After a few days of being unable to get out to sea due to stormy weather we woke up to a beutiful winters day in Kaikoura with calm seas, blue skies and spectacular views of the Kaikoura ranges. We located 3-4 sperm whales close inshore along with sightings of NZ fur seals and marine birds along the way. Today's pic was taken on our 10am tour of Tiaki who is a semi-resident sperm whale.
Winter in Kaikoura
Tuesday 22nd July 2014
We have had some very winter like conditions over the last couple of days with lots of wind / rain and pretty stuff up on the mountains (today's pic was taken earlier this morning). We have not sailed the last two days with rough sea conditions but are hoping the weather starts to settle down along with the sea conditions... Keep warm!
