Whale Watch Kaikoura - Review
Whale Watch Kaikoura gives you the opportunity to get up close and personal with the majestic creatures from the oceans that are a cause of great wonder in humans. The sheer size of these creatures makes one think of just how insignificant one is on the face of this earth.
Whale watching can be done in very few places on the earth and the experience in New Zealand is unparalleled. The Whales roam freely around as you admire their majesty in your boat.
Seeing the whales is certainly a once in a life time experience. The best part is that the Whale watch is a eco-friendly activity. You can be assured that you will not disturb the whales too much thanks to the sustainable nature of the whole operation. It is certainly an amazing experience worth having in Kaikoura.

Whale Watch Kaikoura, Kaikoura Reviews
Such an amazing experience. Our narrator was so informative, and had such a good personality. Really made the experience great. I loved seeing that the crew get just as excited as you when you find the Whales or the Orcas. I was hoping we'd see some Orcas and we were incredibly lucky (according to the crew) to find 4 of them hanging around. We got up close to them and got some amazing photos. I would definitely put this on one of the best experiences of my life. An amazing day.
Five whales. One massive pod of dolphins. Two happy children. Pleased parents. It was a perfect, calm, winters day, the Kaikorua mountains snow slathered and glorious, with the whales appearing as soon as we got out to the feeding grounds. Worth doing. Great photos. And it didn't feel too disrespectful... the boat stayed a reasonable distance away and drifted with the whales until they dived. Our boat wasn't crowded.
Whales Watch is not only a company which allow you to watch whales, this is a company that will also notify you when whales will dive and they will make sure that the boat is well positioned with a good background for your pictures. We appreciated during the cruise having detailed explanations on whales. And if you are not lucky, you'll be refund of 80% of your ticket. The car park is very big. You should arrive at least 30min before your trip. Then you'll wait 30min to watch a video which explain the security procedures. 10 min after, you'll be on the boat for a 2h hours trip. So count 4h before the time you arrive and time you'll leave.
Great staff, well organized and honest about seeing whales. If you don’t you get your money back! One recommendation-take a SEA SICKNESS REMEDY unless you are know you don’t get seasick. The majority don’t and there are a lot of unhappy whale watchers who can’t appreciate the experience because of it. They SELL the pills there.
Amazing water adventure. Highly recommended a must do if you love sea creatures. Crew are splendid gave lots of information. Awesomeness!!!
