Kaikoura Day Tours and Wildlife Trips

Kaikoura is a small New Zealand coastal community and is the northernmost district in the Canterbury region. It can be reached via Picton, Blenheim*, and Christchurch. This small town is known for its crayfish and spectacular marine and wild life and is famous especially amongst visitors travelling with families. Our Kaikoura day tours and wildlife trips can be taken from Christchurch or you can drive there if you have a rental car.

Get a chance to encounter giant sperm whales and Royal Albatross through our cruise tours. You can also fly above Kaikoura’s breath-taking landscape and appreciate the sheer size of the sperm whales and spot other marine life from the sky. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can also swim with dolphins in their natural habitat.

*Due to the earthquake that happened in 2016, the road between Blenheim and Kaikoura is still under construction and will not be expected to reopen until late 2018.
