Top notch trip out with Murray to see the beautiful Kaikoura South Bay . We saw seals and a pod of hundreds of dusky dolphins, sadly whales were elusive today, but it was a beautiful clear day and we were not in the slightest bit disappointed. Murray is such a lovely host, great with kids - I had 3 boys with me, he was so kind and patient with them. We will book again and would highly recommend this scenic flight and wildlife experience to anyone visiting the area.

Unfortunately our flight was a no go due to unfavorable conditions and our limited time in Kaikoura. Appreciate the great customer service to explore alternatives and to promptly process the refund.

Fabulous trip today with Murray and the team from Air Kaikoura. We saw hundreds of dolphins and 2 Sperm Whales. Great flight over the peninsular showing the beauty of the area and the impact of the Kaikoura earthquake. Would recommend this to anyone interested in seeing this part of New Zealand. Thanks team.
