Day tours or overnight tour to Kaikoura to see the Giant Sperm Whale.

Spectacular coastal scenery, fresh picnic lunch with a knowledgeable Kiwi guide.

View NZ Fur Seals and usually dolphins as well from the boat. Homemade picnic 2 course lunch to be enjoyed in a stunning location on the coast. 11 hour return trip from Christchurch.

If the weather is at all doubtful we will happily change the schedule to another location if whale watching boat is not operating. Tranz Alpine , Akaroa, Mt Cook or Hanmer Springs to suit clients wishes and adjust the price accordingly.
