Itinerary and Extra Activities

DAY 1: ARRIVAL IN KAIKOURA

This tour takes you to New Zealand`s whale-watching capital Kaikoura. The Maori name Kaikoura translates to “meal of crayfish” (Kai – food, koura – crayfish) so make sure you try some while exploring the town. Tonight we spend the evening at the hostel, take a swim in the hostel swimming pool or sauna.

DAY 2: KAIKOURA

In the morning you can fulfil your dream of swimming with the dolphins. Or do you prefer whales and you have always wanted to watch them from a close distance? The adventurous water lovers can get up close and personal with the world´s largest toothed whales. If you have not booked any extra activities, then you can enjoy a sunny day at the beach and explore the small city centre while going shopping. You can spend the last evening of the tour relaxing in the hostel swimming pool and review the experiences of the tour.

Extra Activities:

Whale Watching, Dolphin Swimming/Watching

DAY 3: KAIKOURA – HOME

We leave Kaikoura after a delcious breakfast all together and begin our return journey home. On the way to Nelson, we will stop at a seal colony. We will have to say goodbye in Nelson, but we`re sure you´ll never forget this experience – so keep in touch.
