This tour starts with an in-depth talk at our base in Kaikōura about the diverse Marine biology that is found here in our amazing part of the world. Once this talk is complete we depart in our aircraft and head out to explore the Hikurangi Marine Reserve where the whales reside close to the Kaikōura coastline, during this time Dr Krista will be happy to share her broad knowledge of all things marine with our guests and answer any questions they may have during the tour. Once this part of the experience has been completed we will head north along the Kaikoura Coast to Karaka lobster owned & operated by 3rd generation local fishing family, the Readers for a light crayfish lunch to take to the mountains to eat with while enjoying the view.
