Why people love Kaikoura

Richard

Went out on the boat to experience whales in their natural environment. The boat was very comfortable and the staff were friendly and made you feel safe. It was a very windy day and the sea was very rough so taking sea sickness pills before the trip was a good idea. We saw a whale which was amazing and also saw some Albatross, Hectors Dolphins and Dusky Dolphins. Highly recommend
