About Whale Watch Kaikoura Ltd

Experience the wonder of Whale Watching.

Whale Watch is New Zealand's only marine-based whale watching company offering visitors an exciting up-close encounter with the Giant Sperm Whale at all times of the year with tours operating daily. Our 95% success rate means we guarantee an 80% refund if your tour does not see a whale.

Whale Watch is located in the town of Kaikoura - a scenic two and a half-hour drive north from Christchurch in New Zealand's South Island. Kaikoura is a special place of lush pastures and towering, snow covered peaks that fall to the sea. This rare magic continues just offshore where a deep undersea canyon combines with unusual sea currents to attract an extraordinary abundance of marine life, the most famous being the Sperm Whale. Kaikoura often hosts the world's largest dolphin - the Orca - and is home to the world's smallest and rarest - the Hector's.

Depending on the season you may also see migrating:

  • Humpback Whales
  • Pilot Whales
  • Blue Whales
  • Southern Right Whale
  • 13 species of Albatross
  • 14 varieties of Petrels
  • 7 types of Shearwater

Our Cafe is right next door for hot beverages, cold drinks and delicious meals. Film, postcards, books and clothing can be bought from Our Gift Shop adjacent to Whale Watch Reservations.

Whale Watch tours are extremely popular so we advise to book early.

What makes us different

At Whale Watch Kaikoura Ltd, we provide for you tours and sight seeing. We take pride in our affordable marine wild life that is open to tours and sight seers among the beautiful ocean.
