Kaikoura Travel Guide
Kaikoura is a small seaside town with a pebbled beach and stunning coastline on one side and rugged mountains on the other, the perfect place to relax, recharge and get back to nature.
Whether you decide to take part in a once in a lifetime experience like whalewatching or swimming with dolphins, or whether you decide to just walk along the coast to the tip of the peninsula and hang out with the fur seals, it can be guaranteed that you will adore Kaikoura.
Kaikoura just has that X factor. As a small, sleepy seaside town in New Zealand, worldwide status would never have been expected, nor would the complexity of the marine system underneath the water whose consequences have made Kaikoura famous.
Swimming with dolphins is on everybody's bucket list but swimming with dolphins in Kaikoura has got to be the best in the world. I know that's quite a statement to make but the experience with Dolphin Encounter will have you stunned.
