Swim with wild New Zealand Fur Seals in the shallow waters of the beautiful Kaikoura Peninsula.

You'll be a part of an intimate group of up to 10 like-minded adventurers suited up in warm wet suits and guided on your seal swimming experience.

We cater for all abilities from experienced snorkellers to first timers. No experience is needed as our guides are very good at making people feel confident in the water. Plus, the wet suits we will give you will provide the same buoyancy as life jackets. This is an experience that you do not want to miss out on.

Seal Swim Kaikoura has now been awarded the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for three years running!

Adults $120
