Beautiful day out at sea
Tuesday 27th May 2014
We have had a wonderful day out at sea with sightings of not only sperm whales (of which there were 3-4 of them in the area today) but we also had a pod of orca pass through earlier in the day. The view of the snow capped mountains from out at sea is so spectacular today. Hoping for much the same tomorrow :)
Another visit from Orca today
Tuesday 13th May 2014
We had a cooler day in Kaikoura with good sea conditions and a bit of drizzle in the afternoon. We managed to locate orca in the area today which is always a surprise as it is not usual to see them around this time of the year. There is a bit of wind forecast for tomorrow along with some rain so may pay to dress warm and call before visiting with us for an update - 0800 655 121
Great day to watch sperm whales and orca

We have had a wonderful day out at sea with semi-resident sperm whale, Tiaki feeding close inshore along with a pod if orca passing through this afternoon. There was around 6 indvidiuals in the pod which was indeed a special treat for our passengers and crew alike. Hoping for much the same tomorrow!
Three sperm whales in the canyon
Thursday 8th May 2014
We have had a fantastic day out at sea with 3 sperm whales feeding around 8 miles offshore. Sea conditions were nice out there which is always a bonus. When time allowed we were also able to view marine birds and NZ fur seals. Hoping for a another great day out there tomorrow :)
Very windy night but turned out a beautiful day
Tuesday 6th May 2014
After a very strong nor west wind overnight we awoke to a beautiful warm autumn day. We had a great day out at sea with not only sightings of sperm whales but also happened to come across a pod of orca also which is always a bonus. When time allowed we also saw NZ fur seals and marine birds on our tour today.
