One of our best trips whilst we’ve been over here was to Kaikoura to go whale watching. We had THE BEST DAY. We got to see a Sperm Whale resting on the surface of the water before diving (so cool). Then a pod of dusky dolphins came to play by the boat.
The other highlight of the day was seeing a mummy orca with her baby super close to the boat. The crew were excited too as they were the first orcas seen in the area since the big earthquake.
