If you are out with Kaikoura Whale Watch at the right time of the year when the whales migrate, there is also the possibility of seeing Humpback Whales, Pilot Whales, Blue Whales and Southern Right Whales.... continue below the picture...
The most popular whale is the Sperm Whale as they love to reside here throughout the year due to the three kilometer Kaikoura Canyon that runs along the coastline providing an excellent food supply for these whales. Looking at these incredible mammals at close range gives one a chill up and down your back due to the excitement you feel and the massive size of the whale. Some adult Sperm Whales have been known to be the size of four elephants.
Sometimes a long tour is not necessary as the Sperm Whales tend to linger close to the shoreline which gives passengers aboard this whale watching tour more time to spend with them. Always be quick with your pictures, as a Sperm Whale has been known to be submerged for up to two hours if they are in search of a particular type of food.
