* Unique experience
* Amazing views on a nice day
* We were well taken care of

We were so lucky to have a perfect clear day with a fresh coating of snow on the surrounding mountains.
Why not go Whale watching by air? Not only will you see the stunning scenic views along the spectacular Kaikoura coastline you could also likely get to view the magnificent Sperm whales in their natural environment too!
You will also have an opportunity to see the playful dusky dolphins and other marine life on your flight. After you’ve got to see the whales you’ll get a scenic flight of Kaikoura and the stunning surrounds that include the high Alpine snow-clad Seaward Kaikoura mountain range, and to the east, the deep blue Pacific Ocean.
Air Kaikoura is a small friendly Aero Club which also provides flight training. The pilots are also flight instructors and the team is enthusiastic about providing their customers with an experience of a lifetime.
Although no guarantees that the whales are there, they do have a very high success rate on finding the whales and the team are honest on the success rate for the day as they do flight by flight.
