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.

On the way to the Peninsula Trail, you can pass the famous Kaikoura seafood bbq, a simple room that has been towed by a car. It is a big landmark in the hearts of tourists, famous for its grilled seafood. We chose to make a big meal at Motel. I bought steaks and vegetables in the supermarket in the evening and bought 7.6 SGD in the seafood store. Fresh seafood is served with fried steak with red wine. The rice cooker borrowed by the car rental company cooked the fragrant rice.
