  • Great tour. One of the highlights of NZ tour. Worth every money. Really proffesionaly organized. We have seen 3 whales on our tour!

  • I've done this tour twice now and I can only say that it's great. The staff is really friendly and knows a lot about all the animals that you'll get to see. They're very good at whale spotting, so there is a big chance you will actually get to see the whales! The boats are nice, not too big, and comfy.

  • Terrific few hours, whale watching. Boat very stable, fast to get you there. They work in tandem with plane tours so information is shared on sightings etc. We saw two sperm whales at the surface and able to take some great pictures from the upper deck. Commentary from crew was informative, and we'll presented. Would recommend.

  • Great company to go whale watching with while in Kaikoura. Ended up seeing four sperm whales in one trip. They provided funny and insightful commentary as well during the trip. Highly recommended.

  • Amazing and awesome experience. Dedicated, knowledgeable and friendly staff. Saw whales, dolphins, multiple albatross and seals.
