Incredibly, Kaikōura is home to sperm whales year-round. These animals can reach an impressive 18 metres in length and weigh up to 60 tonnes!
The area is also home to countless other species so be sure to keep your eyes peeled and your camera at the ready.
From this height, it’s possible to get a sense of how huge these incredible animals are — this really is an experience unlike anything else.
We highly recommend their 30-minute whale watching scenic flight – it’s the best way to spot a number of whales and marine animals without giving half a day away.
