Overview

Enjoy a unique opportunity to view the Royal Albatross and a population of other marine birds in this day tour to Kaikoura. Join the Kaikoura Albatross Encounter for a chance to spot other marine mammals like dusky dolphins and New Zealand fur seals on this boat trip just off the Kaikoura coast.

Enjoy an afternoon out reconnecting with nature.

Kaikoura is deservedly famous for its abundance and easy viewing of marine mammals and marine birds, including the mighty sperm whales, the playful dusky dolphins, and the giant albatross.

See up close a host of seabirds such as petrels, albatross, shags, shearwaters, gulls and terns, all of which inhabit the surrounding Kaikoura peninsula. Nowhere else in New Zealand can you see such a collection of seabirds species teeming in a small area like in Kaikoura, which has justifiably earned a reputation as one of the world’s leading arenas for seabird watching.

In Kaikoura, you don’t have to go far from the coast before spot a diverse population of seabirds. Just 15 minutes on a boat tour off the coast and you hear the flapping of wings, which our experienced guides will be able to help you identify and provide insightful commentary.
