whale watching NZ or Sydney?

Where would you choose to do whale watching in May, Sydeny, Auckland or Kaikoura? What are the pros/cons? I can only do one of the places. Thanks.

is there a need to decide now? If weather and conditions are excellent in whichever place you are in first then go there. if conditions are marginal then wait and do it at the second location.

Migration of whales past the coast of Sydney is mid May - one website states 18 May.

Did the boat trip two years ago, sadly only spotted two whales from afar. Realistically we had a better view of migrating whales from the news on tv.
