Great day out at sea
Tuesday 11th February 2014
It has been a wonderful day out at sea with 4 sperm whales feeding just over the continental shelf which is only around 3-4 miles offshore. There were also dusky dolphins, hectors dolphins, NZ fur seals and marine birds being sighted throughout the day when time allowed. Forecast is looking good for tomorrow, here is hoping :)
Great day for whale watching in Kaikoura
Tuesday 4th February 2014
It has been such a beautiful day in Kaikoura with nice sea conditions, loads of happy passengers and some fantastic sightings taking place. We had around 4-5 sperm whales offshore today along with dusky dolphins, NZ fur seals and marine birds being sighted when time allowed.
Today's pic was sent in by one of our previous guests - Stephen Fox, and I think you will agree it is breathtaking!
Sperm whales, dolphins, seals and marine birds
Monday 3rd February 2014
We managed to locate around 3 sperm whales today who ended up feeding in close by the days end. We did have some strong wind around midday which made for a round of our tours being cancelled but we ended up being able to go out on our last round of tours which was great. When time allowed today we also took time to view dusky dolphins, NZ fur seals and various marine birds.
Sperm whales, orca and dolphins
Friday 31st October 2014
We have had a great day out at sea with around 3-4 sperm whales feeding close inshore. Earlier in the day we were also fortunate to see a pod of orca as they were passing through and even saw a pod of common dolphins that were present in the area today. It is usually the dusky dolphins that we view so seeing the commons was an added bonus. Have a great weekend all :)
