A Look Back Over October 2017

Throughout October we saw semi-resident Sperm Whale Holy Moly along with plenty of transient male Sperm Whales soaking up the abundance of food on offer in the Kaikōura Canyon. Some of these transient whales were absolutely huge! Well on the larger side of the size spectrum.

When is the best time to come whale watching?

A question I get asked often is “When is the best time to come whale watching?” My first answer would be “Every day is a good day to come whale watching” after all we have sperm whale feeding off our coastline all year round. 

We Love Whale Watching

It really is so special to be able to take our guests out and show them a 'whale of a time'.

Kaikoura - Marine Life Mecca

Every now and then I am fortunate enough to be able to get out from behind my desk and head out to see whale watching. Yesterday was one such occasion.
