Weekly Update - 25th October 2017
Labour Weekend provided some amazing sightings for our guests this year! Humpback Whales were sighted getting slap happy, with one guy slapping his tail an uncountable number of times. He must have been just as happy to see us as our passengers were to see him! He also had a pod of Dusky Dolphins in tow who were doing leaps and flips around him, what a sight to be out on the water to see!

Weekly Update - 28th August 2017
This week’s weather has been absolutely spectacular! We’ve had some amazing calm days out on the ocean and clear blue skies to match it. Our tours were able to sight semi-residential Sperm Whale Aoraki feeding in the Hikurangi Trench this week, as well as multiple other transient Sperm Whales passing through our region. On Thursday we had four Orca pay us a visit early!
