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. These are larger whales that we have been seeing for many years now off the coastline, for instance we have been seeing Tiaki for around 20 years now.
