Whale Watch Kaikoura Reviews & Ratings

  • What time of the year are you more likely to see a whale or whale activity than at other times of the year in Kaikura? I have been out whale watching in Alaska and was very disappointed when we came back in with no whale sighted.

    • While sperm whales can be seen in Kaikoura year-round, humpback whales can be spotted between June and August since these are migrating whales. So if you wish to see both, the time period between June and August would be ideal.
