Latest Questions about Whale Watch (Kaikoura)

i would just like to ask what is whale watch kaikoura, when is the best time of year to see the whales?


Hi Ellis. Kaikoura is one of the few places in the world where Sperm Whales can be seen year-round and close to shore. They congregate here because the 3km deep Kaikoura Canyon runs right up against the coast creating a rare system of sea currents that sustain an incredibly rich marine food chain. Sperm Whales are at the top of this food chain and the abundance of fish ensures they make the waters of Kaikoura their home.
