On the east coast of the South Island sits the beautiful seaside town of Kaikoura. Its wildlife, including a colony of adult New Zealand Fur Seals near the town center are a large reason why so many people travel to this part of the world.
- Whale Watch Kaikoura is the perfect way to get out onto the ocean to see the rich biodiversity including whales, dolphins and seals. http://www.whalewatch.co.nz
- The canyon only 800 metres from the coast line drops 1600 metres under water which makes it the perfect spot to see Whales- in fact you can see whales pretty much every day!
- Kaikoura’s waters see the largest whale in the world, the blue whale, which grows up to 33 metres in length.
- Kaikoura is only one of three places in the world where sperm whales can be seen so closely.
