I am going to be in the Kaikoura area on Easter Sunday. I recently read that the government mandates that many companies close on Easter and Good Friday with a few exceptions.
1) Does anyone know if the whale watching operators will be open on Easter
2) Any recommendations for nice places in Kaikoura area to eat dinner or brunch on Easter. Are reservations recommended?
3) Does anyone know if the ferry will be running its normal schedule from Wellington to Picton on Good Friday?
