Whale Watching in Kaikoura

Kaikoura is renowned for whale watching and is one of the few places in the world that these magnificent creatures can be seen year round - with a 95% success rate! On day two of the South Island Explorer 'Kiwi' trip, you'll have the option to go aboard a catamaran to explore the krill-rich waters off the coast. Sperm whales and other species including humpback, blue, mink, southern right and beaked whales are common here. You'll likely see albatrosses, penguins, New Zealand fur seals and local dolphins.

Above all, we aim to be amazing hosts. We're proud of our kiwi roots, and our professional, warm and relaxed style of running trips around the world is unforgettable.

We're VERY picky about who we select to work in our team, and we have people from all over the world lining up to guide our trips. So we get to hire the absolute BEST in the business.

As soon as you get off the plane, we've got all the details of your vacation covered – top notch meals, comfortable transport & accommodation, amazing guides and INCREDIBLE service.

Whether you’re new to adventure travel, or you’ve never travelled in a group before, you’ll find yourself arriving home positively different from when you left.

With our small groups (no more than 14), you'll get to know our team, your fellow travellers, and have the flexibility and freedom to do as much (or as little!) as you like.

It's all about getting there under your own steam – on foot, in a sea kayak, or by bike. What better way is there to experience mind blowing scenery? If it's your first time, no worries – our expert guides have got you covered.
