Ended up with a windy afternoon
Wednesday 26th February 2014
We had a few sperm whales feeding close inshore today - Tiaki, Tutu and Aotearoa along with dusky dolphins, NZ fur seals and marine birds being sighted when time allowed. Unfortunately the wind picked up from the NE making for unsuitable conditions for whale watching on our afternoon tours, hoping things calm down overnight.
Great day out at sea in Kaikoura

We have had a bit of a cooler day this end but still a wonderful day out at sea. There were 3-4 sperm whales feeding close inshore along with dusky dolphins, NZ fur seals and marine birds being sighted when time allowed for it on our tours. Today's picture was taken by on of our sea crew (Haley Baxter) and is of one of the semi-resident sperm whales we have feeding in the canyon at present - Tutu.
