The main focus of your tour is to locate and view the Giant Sperm whale. This trip has a 95% success rate & averages between 1 to 2 whale sightings per tour!! Depending on the amount of time available after viewing the Sperm whales, the captain of the vessel may decide to move in along the coastline and see what other types of marine life can be encountered. This could include Dusky and Hector Dolphins and the New Zealand Fur Seal. Kaikōura is also home to around 75% of the world’s pelagic sea bird species which include Wandering and Royal Albatross, Mollymawk Albatross, Petrels, Shearwaters, Prions, Fulmars, Gannets, Terns and Herons.

This experience includes VIP access & a seat in the Captains cabin. The Captain’s Cabin is situated in the wheelhouse alongside the captain and watch keeper.
