It has been a warm but windy day in Kaikoura, and unfortunately due to the strong wind we have not been able to sail all day! But we are hoping that the weather will calm down overnight so that we are back out there tomorrow viewing the beautiful marine life we have off the coastline at present.

We have been yet again blessed with a stunning winters day with calm sea conditions and plenty of Sunshine. Today we have located up to 6 Sperm Whales feeding only a few miles from home along with a pod of around 300 Dusky Dolphins, NZ Fur Seals and plenty of Seabirds. Tiaki (Semi-resident Sperm Whale) is one of the whales we have located today and he is feeding right on the egde of the continental shelf.
