    Lovely coastal town with snow capped mountains in the background. Whale Watch Kaikoura run a fantastic tour aimed at spotting Sperm Whales, of which we saw 3, however the highlight of the tour were the 8 or so Orca we sighted swimming with the local Dusky Dolphins.

There is a walkway that follows a stream inland to the waterfall. The pool at the base of the waterfall is full of seal pups playing the day away while the adult seals are out fishing on the ocean. The pups make their way up and down the stream from the coast, apparently forgetting which track is theirs as you'll often see them waddling up the path instead :) Read Less
