Enjoy two unforgettable experiences combined into one exciting activity: whale watching plus a scenic flight. Kaikoura is famous as a place to go on whale-watching tours, and this tour from the air is a thrilling twist on the more conventional activity. From the air you can really appreciate the size of Sperm whales. Also spot other marine life, like dolphins, while checking out the spectacular coastal and mountain scenery.
Whale-watching is a popular pastime for visitors to Kaikoura, which means that the town’s many whale-watching cruises can get crowded. On this private helicopter tour, see Kaikoura’s year-round whale populations without jostling for a spot to see them. Fly over the migratory routes for sperm whales, humpback whales and more, seeing the whales from tail to tip. After your whale-watching, take in the rest of the dramatic Kaikoura scenery with a flight over the Seaward Kaikoura Mountain Ranges and the Kaikoura Peninsula.
