We dropped in by coincidence on our way to the city of Kaikoura. One hour after we were sitting in their plane flying across the ocean. Fortunately there was one whale who was about to descent to show off his back fin. Two boats where down there too... The chances to see a whale are more than 90%. If you are afraid of ending up in the 10% you should choose the boat. There will be a refund. The view from up there is better though as you see real proportions and the whole animal. The pilot explained us all rules and need-to-knows before and it was a fantastic experience with wonderful weather and animal entertainment... Not to be missed! Make sure you bring a 2,8 / 200mm zoom to get a decent output which is not blurry!
