  • WHY CAN’T I BOOK ONLINE FOR DECEMBER 2016 - MAY 2017?
    Following the M7.8 earthquake on 14th November 2016, we are not yet able to return to our normal tour operating schedule until repair work is completed at the harbour; as yet there is no clear timescale for its completion.
    Whilst this work has commenced and is underway; we are attempting to run daily tours when we can, by prior arrangement only. These tours are subject to a number of factors including the marina repairs, the weather and the tides.
    To register your interest for a tour departure in the next few months, please contact our Customer Service Team directly (details below) and they will advise you what may be possible.
    At this stage we are accepting online bookings for our usual tour schedule from 1st May 2017 onwards.
    We are regularly updating our social media channels as recovery progresses and information on transport links to Kaikoura can be found @ www.visitkaikoura.nz

  • WHY CAN`T I SEE A DOLPHIN SWIM OPTION?
