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.
殊涛I went in February, and the long-awaited Peninsula Walkway (Peninsula Walkway) is also a paradise for wildlife. As soon as I arrived at the entrance of the trail, I saw a seal who was not afraid of people. It was actually very humane on the stairs, sleeping on the grass by the roadside, living in harmony with humans without disturbing each other. The famous Peninsula Trail Park, where you can see the vast Pacific Ocean from the mountain cliffs, and it is indeed the first time for me to see the sea from a real cliff. The momentum is far more domineering than on the sea level. With the magnificent scenery, I can’t help but make it arrogant~~~ The endless sea, the rhythmic sound of waves beating on the beach, sitting on this wooden bench, you can be in a daze all day. The wonders of nature are everywhere, just to show us the magnificent spectacle that is cloudy and sunny. Hiking the entire peninsula along the coastal cliffs on the mountain, you can choose to return to the seaside, but there is no repaired plank road under the seaside mountain. They are all walking on the rocks on the seaside. The scenery is primitive, uninhabited, and 100% original. But remember that you cannot choose this path during high tide, otherwise you may fall into a dilemma.
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.
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...
ccjccjThe manor is not very big. It was when the flowers were blooming when we went. It was beautiful at first glance. There is also a lavender product store on the j Manor. Many products are made from lavender harvested in the garden, including lavender-flavored ice cream, candles, Soap etc.

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.
The coast of Kaikoura is sunny, with long-lasting sunshine and rich fish, and nourish the native seals. In winter, the number of seals is much better than in summer. On the beach, on the plank road, under the bushes, there are seals everywhere.
If you don't pay attention to your feet, you may not accidentally step on them. Moreover, it may be due to a large number of tourists visiting or instinct, they are not afraid of people, but it is best to keep the local regulations, keep them 10 meters away, quietly, do not disturb them to the sun.
After watching the seals, you can take the peninsula trail, which is also less difficult and the scenery is very good!
Tips: New Zealand's seals are all kind of eared seals, which are seals with their ears exposed (compared to another true seal without ears)
can also participate in activities with seals - Seal Swim Kaikoura

In Maori, kai kai refers to food, and Kura koura refers to crayfish. You can see the name and see what special food is there.
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.
