It is almost Māori language week in Aotearoa (New Zealand). This year’s theme is ‘Kia Kaha te Reo Māori’‘Let’s make the Māori language strong'.

With this in mind we thought we would introduce you to some of the common Māori words you would hear around our booking office and out at sea when visiting Whale Watch Kaikōura.

Humpback Whale Migration

It is that time of the year where we start to see Humpback Whales migrating through on their way to the warmer waters for winter.

Tiaki, Jonah and Aoraki

We currently have three semi-resident sperm whales feeding close inshore - Tiaki, Jonah and Aoraki.

& Inland Road Route 70 between Christchurch (via Waiau) to Kaikōura is OPEN 24/7.
