About the neighborhood
Kaikōura is world famous for Whale watching, swim/kayak with seals/dolphins, in winter we have a ski field 90 minutes away from our door, fishing, trekking, scuba diving and a host of other outdoor activities. There is plenty to keep you entertained indoors too - but whatever you choose to do make sure you make time to relax and enjoy the views! We do strongly suggest that you do book any trips (whale/seal/dolphin) that you would want to do early to avoid missing out as they do get booked well in advance (especially in our peek seasons). Some restaurants are needing bookings so book them too. I-site is the best place to have a look what is available as there is so many things available.
Getting around
A bus or train from Christchurch or Picton is available to bring you to our amazing little town Kaikōura. It is highly recommended that you have a car as there is so much to see and do and a car will make it a lot easier. If travelling without a car we can certainly come collect and drop you off at the bus stop or train station. If this option is needed just send an email and we can arrange it.
