Whale Watch Experiences

Come and fly with South Pacific Whale Watch for that unique perspective only we can provide. We offer unforgettable flights showcasing Kaikoura's amazing marine life, such as the largest of the toothed whales, the magnificent sperm whales. Kaikoura's resident sperm whale population can be seen year-round.

Kaikoura is renowned as a biodiversity hotspot due to the 3km deep offshore canyon which runs along the coast. Humpback whales, blue whales, southern right whales, long-finned pilot whales, orca, common dolphins, dusky dolphins, Hector's dolphins, bottlenose dolphins, and New Zealand fur seals may also be sighted. The wild is closer than you think!
