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.
Kaikoura Peninsula Walkway
59 Reviews
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.
Point Kean Seal Colony

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.
Lavendyl Lavender Farm

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.
Dolphin Encounter

Dolphin Watching
112***81Chasing wild dolphins in the vast ocean is completely different from watching dolphins in the aquarium before. The dolphin, a highly intelligent animal, is really extraordinary in the open natural sea.

ccjccjThe Fife House was built 160 years ago and is Kaikoura's first European-style building. Not far from the center of the city, the historical significance is quite big, the house is pink, made of whale bones.

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.
