Kaikoura is famous for whales- sperm whales in particular, and we came here for some spotting up close from a boat.
We were not disappointed, seeing three different whales on the surface for about 7 minutes each, as they recuperated after a deep dive hunting for squid.
Was very special getting that close to the whales, the pictures dont do it justice really, they were huge!
We also got to get pretty close to some Seals too which were pretty cool
