Semi-resident sperm whales are back
We have had three of our semi-resident sperm whales move back into the Kaikoura canyon - Tutu, MatiMati and Tiaki after a few months of feeding further offshore.
Wonderful day for whale watching
We are having such beautiful weather in Kaikoura with warm temperatures and calm seas to go with it. Today's tours we have been sighting sperm whales, dusky dolphins, Nz fur seals and marine birds. We have also been seeing Hector's dolphins playing out the front of our office.
Windy day in Kaikoura
We have had a very windy day in Kaikoura which unfortunately made for very rough sea conditions which meant we were unable to sail today. We are hoping that the wind calms down overnight and that we are back out there tomorrow. Have a good weekend. Picture featured was taking during sunset last night.
Orca pay Kaikoura a visit
Another spectacular day in Kaikoura with sperm whale activity close inshore, dusky dolphins along the coastline and even a pod of Orca paying us a visit. Such a wonderful time of the year to come whale watching.
Sperm whales in close today
We have had sperm whale activity close inshore over the last few days which is wonderful.
Windy afternoon in Kaikoura
We were able to get our first two rounds of tours out today before the forecast wind from the NE arrived.
Rain, wind and hail
It has been an all seasons type of day in Kaikoura with sunshine, rain, hail and wind all in one. Our first round of tours sailed but we ended up canceling the rest of the day due to rough seas offshore. Hoping things calm down overnight and we are back out there tomorrow.
Foggy start to the day
We had a very foggy start to the day in Kaikoura. Our tours were able to head out in search of whales this morning but unfortunately the whales were feeding...
We have had a great couple of days out at sea with sperm whales feeding between 8 - 12 miles offshore.
