Kaikoura District
Kaikoura: the combination of snow mountain and sea The views are described as "facing the blue sea and backed by magnificent snowy mountains" in Kaikoura, a beautiful seaside town between Christchurch and Picton in New Zealand. There is no place like Kaikoura where the snowy mountains and sea can be combined so perfectly. What makes Kaikoura unique is that it is a place where you can see a variety of marine wildlife - sperm whales, seals, dolphins, albatrosses, etc. At the same time, it's a good place to eat lobster, whether you choose to go out and fish for it yourself, or eat it in a lobster restaurant in the street.

Trip Moments

In addition to the four of us who went out to sea today, there is another family from Beijing, just eight people. When everyone has expired, they will board the ship's boat in the picture above. and many more? It is not the sea here! Shouldn't the ship be in the port? How is it dragged behind the car? Yes, this is one of the interesting places in New Zealand. When you come here, you will find that a hook is placed behind the local car, and everything can be dragged behind. The dinghy is the most common one. The handlebar boat is towed to the port, there will be a slope, the boat will be put in the water, the hook will be untied, and the boat will go to sea. When going out to sea, because of the wind and waves, the boat was upside down. Everyone grabbed the handle tightly in the cabin, so they didn't jump up. After about 10 minutes of driving, the boat stopped. The captain had already caught the cage of the lobster yesterday, grabbed the float and hung it on the electronic traction device, and the cage was lifted. The captain pulled the cage in and pulled out the lobster inside. He used a ruler to measure whether it met the official requirements. Too small and the mother lobster were thrown back to the sea without hesitation, leaving only the big male lobster. Sea fishing attracts a bunch of uninvited guests: Albatross. The albatross is about 70-140 cm long and is a large seabird. The front end of the mouth is hooked, like a big eagle. The whole body is white and very beautiful. Because of the huge size, the seagull with the seagull suddenly became a mini bird.
