We travelled to Kaikoura specifically to see the marine life and soon found out that the larger operators would not take all of our family (we have two toddlers). Thankfully though Simon was more than happy to take us. In the end it was just us and Simon on the boat so we were able to have a trip that tailored us. Put simply we had a fantastic trip, saw lots of albatrosses, mollyhawks, petrels (inclding a rare white morph Southern Giant), shags (including a King Shag well outside its normal restricted range), NZ fur seals and plenty of dolphins all around the boat. It was voted the highlight of the trip, and our boys keep asking to see the photos and video we took. Simon was a great skipper and guide. Definitely recommend this.
