Kiwirail Scenic Journeys on the Coastal Pacific Train

kiwirail scenic journeys

2019/20 season begins on 27 September 2019.

Whale watching is a must-do Kiwi tourism experience. And the home of whale watching is the coastal village of Kaikōura; it's the ideal spot to experience this wild coast teaming with marine mammals and a stop on the Coastal Pacific train. The Whale Watch crew have daily trips in search of whales and other marine wildlife. Accommodation is at the Kaikōura Boutique Hotel – a small hotel where you will feel most welcome. Breakfast is included, as are return transfers between the hotel and the railway station. Another option is a day trip from Christchurch to Kaikōura and back, with enough time for whale watching and a quick bite to eat.
