Windy few days
Tuesday 7th October 2014
We have had a few days of very windy conditions that have made it too rough for whale watching by boat and it seems we are in for one more day of windy conditions before things will hopefully improve. When working with nature you just never know what each day will bring us but we are looking forward to getting back out onto the ocean soon!!

Fresh snow on the ranges
Monday 29th September 2014
We awoke to fresh snow on the Kaikoura ranges this morning which cooled the temperature down a little bit. Our first round of tours managed to sail but the forecast wind picked up mid-morning with the rest of our day being cancelled. Hoping to be back out there tomorrow, busy day ahead with it being the school holidays...
