What a week it has been here in Kaikoura for marine sightings.  We are incredibly lucky to consistently see Sperm Whales, Dusky Dolphins, Hector's Dolphins and New Zealand Fur Seals but yesterday on a Whalewatch tour, our guests  saw three blue whales! What an incredible experience to get up close to the largest, heaviest and loudest mammals that have ever lived on earth.  Air Kaikoura also saw blue whales last week - check out their Facebook page for some amazing photos. Our lucky guests also saw three sperm whales on the same trip - two transient whales and one of our resident males. Orca, also known as Killer Whales, have also made several appearances over Easter seen by lucky tourists on Dolphin Encounter and Whale Watch.
