Seal Swim Kaikoura, Kaikoura Reviews
I cannot express how truly wonderful it was to take part in the seal swim at Kaikoura. The staff are so friendly and knowledgeable and that really makes the experience extra special. We had a stormy day where it was almost cancelled but we headed out and so did the sun. Then the seals decided to jump in with us too and it was perfect. At one point we had around 10 seals swimming and darting around us. Heaven! Highly recommend you give this a go you will not be disappointed. Thick wetsuits means you're very warm and float so it's all about watching the seals play around you and get inquisitive.
Wonderful tour. The tour before us didn't have a good encounter with the seals, so they got half of their money back. They asked our group who still wanted to go because the conditions were bad, it was to cold to have a big chance to swim with the seals. So if we didn't go, we would get all the money back, if we did go and didn't swim with seals, we would get half of the money back. We were lucky, those guys organizing this tour do so much effort to give you a good encounter with some seals. I loved it!! Thank you guys, you made my day!! I would definitely recommend this tour!
Sadly the seals had taken the day off. It was still a lovely day. Support kaikoura by calling thru and spending a buck or two. Some of the businesses are still suffering from the earthquake. They are a resilient lot down there.
Fantastic experience! Tour guides were informative and were keen to give us the best possible experience. Seals were shy at first but then were being quite playful. So we spent a while swimming with the seals. Even spotted a penguin! A must-do activity in NZ!
Such a unique experience! I've traveled all over New Zealand and this is one of my favorite memories. It was a blast getting to see the seals in their natural environment and they are so curious! It's like swimming with underwater puppies, one came face to face with me. One kept following me as I went up for air and back down into the water. I would do this again in an instant.
