Whale Watching
鸣少It is said that whale watching in Kaikoura is a lot of luck. The one we went there was very lucky. We booked the boat at noon. In the morning, we departed from Christchurch and drove about four hours to Kaikoura. After the ticket, we will wait for the captain to take us out to sea. As soon as we took the whale watching boat out to the open sea, we encountered a sperm whale coming up to take a breath. After it sank, we began to track its path and followed it for about 45 minutes until the sound detector could not hear any sound, Captain Said this means that it ended its foraging and began to float. It didn’t take long to see its figure again. The sperm whale had a strong sense of territory. Not long ago it drove away a sperm whale that was larger than itself. After all, its size is ours. More than twice as much as a ship, we can only observe quietly from a distance, and everyone does not dare to cheer too much. Although I could only see the back of the sperm whale all the way, I felt extremely shocked. After chasing the whales, we turned our heads and drove to Goose Bay. More and more dolphins appeared on the bottom of our ship. After landing, I was hungry. My daughter killed half of Kaikoura's local lobster by herself. It is indeed a well-deserved name. Not only the ingredients are fresh, but the taste is particularly good. This is not easy for New Zealanders.

JING梅The self-driving tour departs from Christchurch for about 200 kilometers and arrives in Kaikoura after 2 and a half hours. After stopping the car and walking to the beach, you can see several seals lying on the rocks on the shore, and you can see many seagulls flying , It’s great to be close to nature...

pxy0705Kaikoura fur sea lion gathering area is home to many fur sea lions. This kind of sea lion is very rare, because the fur on the body is very interesting. They lie on the rocks and bask in the sun. They are very lazy. You can go to the island. Or take a boat and watch them from a distance. It's worth a visit.

Travel Tips
Here are just some reasons to embrace farm life in New Zealand. New Zealand is a large exporter of meat, merino wool, kiwi fruits, and more. Farms and ranches are common, and cattle, sheep, fishing, aquaculture, cows, pigs, horses, hens, deer, goats, and llamas in paddocks form a part of the rural landscapes of both the south and north islands. Nature has also blessed the country with some beauteous views, mountain ranges, extremely cold winters, plenty of water sources and tons of opportunities for vacationers to make the most of their holidays.
