Whale Watch Kaikoura

Whale Watch is New Zealand's only vessel based whale watching company offering an exciting up-close encounter with the worlds largest toothed predator the Giant Sperm Whale in their natural environment at all times of the year, a 95% success rate means you are guaranteed an 80% refund if your tour does not see a whale.

Whale Watch has created a unique, award-winning series of animation sequences designed to reveal Kaikoura's hidden wildlife wonders. Discover how a Sperm Whale survives in the dark and freezing depths of the Kaikoura Canyon or why the green-eyed Plunket Shark is easy prey for a Giant Squid. These animations are a world first for the whale watching industry.

On-board plasma screens display a virtual animated whale watching tour while the tour is actually taking place! You will experience your own tour through the eye of the albatross in real-time. As your vessel approaches the Kaikoura Canyon the ocean will be 'removed' to show the sheer scale of the abyss that plunges kilometres beneath you.

Tour scheduling is subject to customer demand. Actual time on the water is up to 2.5 hours

Including check-in time, safety briefing and bus transfers, you should allow 3.5 hours in total.
