Head out into Cook Strait to look for whales and experience what it is like to see migrating whales. This exclusive tour is only available during winter, during the annual whale migration. Experience a restored whale station and see the movie "Once Were Whalers" in the restored recreation hall.

See conservation in action as original Whalers tell their story about being involved with annual Whale Survey. A fantastic opportunity for a limited number of people to fully immerse themselves in a whale experience, soak up the history and go out to sea in a boat looking for these awe-inspiring creatures.
